Based on the dry powder coating technology platform, this study aimed to develop immediate release ginseng chewable tablets using the electrostatic powder coating technique and sustained release amino acid pellets using the plasticizer powder coating technique. For the immediate release ginseng chewable tablets, the content and types of tableting materials, as well as coating materials, coating temperature, curing time and coating level, were optimized. For the sustained release amino acid pellets, coating level and curing time on, as well as the composition of ethyl cellulose (EC), were optimized. In summary, those laboratory studies provided new opportunities for additional potential commercial applications for dry powder coating technology
