Watson’s directly-compressible nutrients are pre-granulated or agglomerated using a variety of binders. The result is a free-flowing granular powder that is directly compressible, for use in nutritional, sports, and herbal supplement tablets. All Watson agglomerations, granulations, and drum-to-hopper blends are available in starch-free formulations for use in dietary supplements with special-labeling requirements.
