How to Use
Ora-Sweet SF is the ideal flavoring and sweetening agent for many suspensions, but it is specially formulated to complement Paddock’s suspending vehicle Ora-Plus. Ora-Sweet SF and Ora- Plus can be combined in a 50/50 ratio to produce a pleasant tasting elegant suspension.
Ora-Sweet SF does not contain sugar or alcohol. A small amount of sodium saccharin imparts sweetness to Ora-Sweet SF. Xanthum gum, glycerin and sorbitol contribute to both texture and good flow characteristics. Ora-Sweet SF contains flavoring agents to increase palatability. Ora-Sweet SF is buffered to a slightly acidic pH to help diminish degradation of medicinal agents through oxidation.
