*J Muazu, S Lame, G T Mohammed and S J Madu

ABSTRACT

Zingiber officinale rhizome is generally known as ginger which is perhaps one of the most commonly used spice and usually forms an integral part of our diet. In addition to its dietary use, ginger is equally reputed for its medicinal properties. This study was aimed at formulating the aqueous extract of Zingiber officinale rhizome to a chewable tablet using altered concentration of maize starch as binder (2.5, 5.0, 7.5 and 10.0 %w/v). The pre-compression parameters assessed for the aqueous extract and the granules produced include moisture content, angle of repose, bulk and tapped density, Carr’s index, Hausner’s ratio and microbial load. Compressed tablets were evaluated for non-Pharmacopoeial and Pharmacopoeial tests. The findings of these study shows that the aqueous extract of Zingiber officinale can be tableted using altered concentration of maize starch binder to chewable tablets.

Keywords: Zingiber officinale, Formulation, Chewable tablet and Aqueous extract.
