Protection and bioavailability
Used in their millions every day, hard capsules made of pure gelatine are available in crystal clear formats and a large variety of colors. Consumers and patients like them because they are easy to swallow – and from a pharmaceutical perspective, they protect sensitive active ingredients and ensure a high level of bioavailability. Delivered as two-piece empty shells, they are opened, filled with a powder or granulate and closed during the production process. For liquid, semi-solid or oil-based fillings, soft capsules are the preferred choice.
