GELITA® Gelatine Really Delivers

delivery system release

For decades, GELITA® Gelatines have been indispensable in delivery system applications. Industry and consumers alike are most familiar with gelatine as a key component of the most popular hard- and soft-capsule delivery systems. Gelatine capsules are among the most popular dosage forms for drugs, over-the-counter products, and nutritional supplements. Consumers appreciate the smooth surface of the capsules making them easy to swallow — an important aspect of patient compliance. Gelatine itself is highly compatible with other ingredients, is non-allergenic and comprises pure and natural proteins that are easily digested in the gastrointestinal tract, which facilitates the release and absorption of active ingredients.

(Reduced Cross-Linking) gelatine adds extra value to gelatine capsules by significantly reducing cross-linking. This enhances the dissolution properties of the capsules as well as improves shelf-life at high temperature and humidity. The new patented technology even allows the pharmaceutical industry to explore new capsule fills and expand distribution into regions that are exceptionally hot and humid.

(R squared) Gelatine has been proven in independent capsule experiments to release fills significantly faster than standard gelatine capsules. Consumers may now benefit from the more immediate release of medications, such as sleep aids, allergy treatments, pain relievers and psychological aids. And, the capsule industry itself can likewise benefit from more advanced product differentiation with a stable capsule delivery system that is already widely preferred by consumers. Capsules featuring these advanced releasing properties can promote improved patient compliance for dosage forms that are simple and reliable to manufacture.

Gelita EC


Is a novel solution for enteric soft-capsules and is the first commercially available gelatine product of its kind – allowing for the one-step production of enteric capsules that open in the intestine (instead of the stomach, as with traditional gelatine capsules). Most enteric delivery systems are produced by applying an acid-insoluble coating to fresh soft capsules. This intensive two-step process adds time and money to the cost of each enteric capsule. With GELITA® EC, capsules producers can manufacture enteric capsules using existing equipment in a one-step process – avoiding additional time and costs – while creating brilliantly clear capsules. GELITA® EC allows manufacturers to produce enteric capsules that adhere to USP (United States Pharmacopeia) dissolution parameters.
