Pineapple juice was obtained by using a juicer. Tablet were prepared by wet granulation method.The physical quality of resulting granules was evaluated including moisture content. repose angle, flow rate and compressibility. Granules were then compressed to yield rablets of 300 mg, in which each tablet contains 71.5 mg of pineapple fruit extract. The quality of resulting tablets was evaluated including friability. Hardness, weight uniformities and disintegration time. One formula of tablet was prepared and then coated using a coating solution of Eudragit L-100 with the additional weights of 3%, 4%, and 5% The quality of resulting enteric coated tablets was evaluated including additional weight, uniformities, hardness, disintegration time, and physical-appearance of tablet.
