How does water change the properties of Lactose?

Spray-dried lactose is a matrix of amorphous lactose in which lactose monohydrate crystals are embedded. Humidity has no influence on the crystal but amorphous lactose is very hygroscopic: in the presence of humidity, it will transform into the crystalline form. This has consequences on the tableting properties of the substance.
