The mannitol story

Mannitol is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol used for many years as a food additive, a pharmaceutical excipient and an osmotic agent in oral and injectable products.

Pharmaxis has developed a sophisticated spray drying process that changes the naturally irregular structure to precision engineered, 3 micron diameter spheres. These tiny spheres change the properties of mannitol and are small enough to be inhaled using a simple inhaler.
