ABSTRACT

The main aim of this study was to evaluate and characterize flax seed mucilage as Pharmaceutical subordinate. The distilled water was used to extract the mucilage and ethanol was used to isolate it. Various parameters such as tests for protein, carbohydrates, fat, reducing and non-reducing sugars, tannins, alkaloids, phenolic compounds and other parameters like micrometric properties, swelling index, surface tension, and viscosity were calculated for describing the extracted mucilage. The outcome displays that the extraction of mucilage with water has excellent flow properties. Various phytochemical tests illustrate that carbohydrates and amino acids were only present. The pH and surface tension of 1% solution of mucilage was found to be 5.03 ± 0.01 and 65.20 ± 0.730, respectively. It has a good swelling index of 48.10 ± 0.1. Extracted mucilage were soluble in cold water. The effects of evaluated parameters revealed that flax seed mucilage has satisfactory pH and physicochemical properties, which can be used as pharmaceutical subordinate in the preparation of several dosage forms.

Keywords: Flax seed Mucilage, seed excipient, superdisintegrant, isolated extracted powder mucilage.
