Abstract

Chocolate is highly sophisticated a versatile food that can be used to create a wide variety of taste and texture experiences. Additionally, because chocolate is an anhydrous medium, it resists the growth of microorganisms and the hydrolysis of active ingredients that are sensitive to water. Sweetening, flavoring, and coloring agents are added to medicated chocolate in order to make it attractive to pediatric patients. The benefits of medicated chocolate include masking the taste of bitter medications, improving bioavailability, and lengthening the dosage form duration in the oral cavity, which also reduces gastric irritation. Chocolate is one of the most widely consumed foods in the world due to its high nutritional content, quick metabolism, and excellent digestion. In many ways, chocolate is an excellent medium for delivering active ingredients. Medicated chocolate formulations are commonly used for pediatric administration, and they increase the patient compliance to consume the medication. Because conventional dosage forms, such as tablets and capsules, have certain limitations when it comes to pediatric patients for instance, the bitterness of the tablet and their inability to swallow it. Medicinal chocolate is a more acceptable dosage form in pediatrics. Patients with diabetes can also benefit from the chocolate drug delivery system provided by dark chocolate-containing medications. The medicated chocolate can be evaluated for its appearance, moisture content, viscosity, blooming test, drug content determination and in vitro drug release. Medicated chocolate is prepared by using chocolate base and drug is incorporated to prepared chocolate base.

Keywords: Medicated chocolate, patient compliance, pediatric patient, chocolate.
