The purpose of this study is to search for a natural excipient that can be used as alternative in the formulation of pharmaceutical suspensions. Present study was carried out to evaluate suspending properties of mucilage of seeds Linnum usitatisimum Lin. with those of tragacanth and Acacia at concentration range of 1.0–4.0% w/v in calcium carbonate suspension. Evaluation parameters like sedimentation profile, redispersibility, and pH were compared with calcium carbonate (2.0%w/v) suspension prepared by using acacia and tragacanth gum as standard suspending agent. Suspension prepared with linseed mucilage was found a superior suspending agent than acacia and comparable with tragacanth. Linseed mucilage can be used as an effective alternative in the formulation of pharmaceutical suspensions.
