Sterotex tablet lubricants belong to the hydrophobic category which is the most widely used in the tableting industry. The Sterotex product line consists of a series of finely divided white powders made of edible hydrogenated vegetable oils (stearines). Sterotex powders are prepared from fully refined vegetable oils. These oils are hydrogenated (hardened) to near saturation, bleached and deodorized before being spray chilled to find powders. Additional, Sterotex NF, Sterotex HM NF, and Sterotex K NF all conform to the NF (National Formulary) compendial monograph for Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Type I. All Sterotex powders are certified Kosher and are similar in appearance but differ in melting point ranges.
