Dextrin is used as the excipient in single-herb extracts where necessary. Dextrin can function as a carrier, filler, and drying agent. It is added to the liquid paste before the drying process. The dextrin used is 100% corn-based (derived from corn starch) pharmaceutical grade material. Each batch of dextrin is extensively tested prior to use and results must conform to the established standards of the Chinese Pharmacopoeia before it may be used. The amount of dextrin used depends upon the nature of the herb and its natural extraction yield.
