Why is GELITA® Gelatine the best material for capsules?
For many pharmaceutical applications, GELITA® Gelatine is indispensable for decades. Although mostly used for hard and soft capsules, GELITA® Pharmaceutical Gelatine is also essential for many other applications. It’s a binder in tables and acts as matrix in vitamin coating. Low endotoxin gelatines are the basis for plasma expanders, vaccines and haemostatic sponges.
CAPSULES: MOST POPULAR FORM OF DRUG
Gelatine capsules are among the most popular dosage forms for drugs, over-the-counter products and nutritional supplements. Consumers appreciate the smooth surface of capsules that makes them easy to swallow—an important aspect of patient compliance. Gelatine itself is also highly compatible with other ingredients, is non-allergenic and comprises proteins that are easily digested in the gastrointestinal tract, which facilitate the release and absorption of active ingredients:
GELITA LEADING SUPPLIER
In particular, it’s the film forming ability, thermo-reversible gelation properties and adhesive behavior that make GELITA® Gelatine so versatile. With outstanding innovations such as the patented GELITA® RXL gelatines for reduced cross-linking, GELITA has set new standards in stability and dissolution for gelatine capsules. As a leading supplier of all types of gelatine, GELITA offers also Kosher and Halal variants.
“As consumers choose to take more and more ownership of their own health—which often involves nutritional supplements—delivery systems must deliver more than just active ingredients.”
