Gelatine, Pullulan, and HMPC in a variety of colors and sizes
HPMC capsules, an abbreviation from hypro-mellose (hydroxypropyl methylcellulose), are vegetarian capsules made from plant fibres. Our capsules are made from non-GMO, USP grade HPMC, and are best suited for vegetarian applications.
HPMC capsules are renowned for their long storage life and essential for the encapsulation of moisture sensitive powders. The capsules offer enhanced absorption and digestion of protein, fat and carbohydrate, which gives them technical characteristics that traditional gelatine capsules cannot match.
They are made from natural wood pulp and are free from animal products. HPMC capsules are widely recognised in many countries as a valid vegetable alternative to gelatine capsules. Our HPMC capsules are strickly non-toxic vegetarian, kosher and halal certified.
They have a very similar appearance and dimensions to high quality gelatine capsules, with the same level of resiliency and flexibility. They run very well on all makes of high speed automatic encapsulation machines, therefore, no adjustments are necessary for customers who use gelatine capsules in their operations. They are also compatible with GRAS and traditional formula coating
