    Undesirable taste is one of several important formulation problems that are encountered with certain drugs. The problem of bitter and obnoxious taste of is a challenge to the pharmacist in the present scenario. Taste is an important parameter governing compliance. Several oral pharmaceuticals and bulking agents have unpleasant, bitter-tasting components. In numerous cases, the bitter taste modality is an undesirable trait of the product or formulations and can considerably affect its acceptability by consumers. Bitter characteristics found in such systems have been eliminated or minimized by various known processes, but no universally applicable technology for bitterness inhibition has ever been recognized. The desire of improved palatability in these products has prompted the development of numerous formulations with improved performance and acceptability. This paper reviews different methods are available to mask undesirable taste of the drugs, with the applications. Popular approaches in the development of taste masking are based on coating, solid dispersion system and ion exchange resin.
