When selecting the most suitable galenic form for your dietary supplement, it’s crucial to consider the benefits of the available options, and choosing a capsule supplements manufacturer can be a strategic decision that offers several advantages. Capsule supplements boast significant popularity as the stand out leader in the nutraceuticals market, having captured a whopping 30% of the market share in 2022 leaving tablets and soft gels in the dust at 28% and 11% respectively (1). This can be attributed to the numerous benefits associated with capsule supplements, such as their fast action and ease of digestion and absorption.
Capsules contract manufacturing refers to the process of creating a food supplement that consists of a nutraceutical formula enclosed in a hard casing. Consisting of two prefabricated halves, capsules, once filled are tightly sealed with fine grooves, preventing the capsule from falling apart and the powder from escaping. The advantage of this casing is that it facilitates the easy breakdown of the supplement in the digestive tract, allowing its contents to be absorbed into the bloodstream.
Capsule supplements are comparatively easy to digest which means that the nutraceutical ingredient absorption rate is relatively higher compared to certain other methods of consumption, such as tablets, which may take longer to break down and release their active ingredients. The capsule manufacturing process of enclosing the nutraceutical formula in a hard casing, not only helps protect the ingredients from degradation but also functions as an oxygen barrier, containing any unpleasant tastes or odours of the nutraceutical ingredients reducing the need for masking agents.

Our application lab
Our nutraceutical application lab plays a crucial role by examining the efficacy of clients’ unique supplement formulas on our galenic forms. Specifically, our specialists focus on various aspects of each formula, such as density, castability, flowability, homogeneity, and stability, to evaluate their suitability for capsule supplement manufacturing. By thoroughly assessing these and other factors, our nutraceutical application lab can offer valuable insights into the quality and effectiveness of supplement formulas, ensuring that they meet the needs and expectations of their consumers.
As a capsule supplements manufacturer, our facility is equipped to create pilot batches of any capsule supplement formulation. These pilot batches are a small production run on industrial tool and are produced to validate the formulation for the industrial transposition stage. Formulation behaviours that are subject to the discerning examination of our specialists include the filling rates, powder behaviour, uniformity and formula homogeneity. This process is carried out in order to avoid any problems during production and ensure that the final product meets our high standards.
