For easy swallowing
Compared with hard capsules, soft gelatine capsules are thicker and require additional ingredients such as glycerin to obtain their soft texture. Depending on the formula, the thickness of the capsule, its elasticity and its degree of residual moisture can be adjusted. Perfectly suited for liquid or semi-solid fillings, soft capsules are widely used to deliver pharmaceutical substances and a wide range of nutraceutical supplements, such as omega-3 fish oils. Many consumers prefer soft gelatine capsules as they are easy to use and swallow.
Did you know? Soft capsules are made using a process invented by Robert Pauli Scherer in the late 1920s – one of GELITA´s predecessors.
