Generally active ingredient is the ingredient in a pharmaceutical drug or a pesticide that is biologically active. Active pharmaceutical ingredients is the portion of any drug, which are active. Certain Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients are unknown and hence require additional substances, which can work in conjunction with the API to produce the required medicinal effect.

The API is one of the prime components of the drug. It is added with other non active substance to form drug or tablets.Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients are the chemically active substance, which is meant to produce the desired effect in the body.
