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.
Purified water, glycerin, sorbitol, sodium saccharin, xanthan gum, and flavoring. Buffered with citric acid and sodium citrate. Preserved with methylparaben (0.03%), propylparaben (0.008%), and potassium sorbate (0.1%).
