Abstract

Now-a-days natural or herbal products are more often used in comparison to synthetic products because of its low toxicity, biodegradability, biocompatibility and its cheaper cost. The main aim of this study is to isolate and characterize mucilage obtained from Trigonella foenum graecum L. seed and Tamarindus indica polysaccharide as pharmaceutical excipients. Both isolated mucilages are extracted by different methods i.e., hot water extraction method and reflux method respectively. Ethyl alcohol is used in the isolation of mucilages. Solubility behaviour of isolated mucilages with different solvents was also studied. Different phytochemical characterization of isolated mucilages were studied like bulk and tapped densities, compressibility index, hausner’s ratio and swelling index etc. and some identification tests were also carried out for presence of carbohydrate, fats, oils etc.
