Some Other Plant Polysaccharide Based Multiple Units for Oral Drug Delivery
TS is a naturally occurring starch and it is obtained from the Manihot esculenta root extract (BeMiller and Whistler in Potato starch: production, modifications and uses. Academic Press, pp. 511–539, 2009; Biswas and Sahoo in Int J Biol Macromol 83:61–70, 2016). The residual matter level of TS is lesser in comparison with other starch-derived plants. The content of amylase in TS is less (around, 17%) as compared to other starch-derived plants (Casas et al. in Carbohydr Polym 80:71–77, 2010).
