Dietary Supplement Applications

Capsules are the dosage form of choice for dietary supplements. Many supplements utilize natural herbal ingredients that are difficult to compress into a tablet. Capsules provide a proven, safe and cost-effective dosage form. The natural color Coni-Snap Capsule is widely used in dietary supplement applications. A growing trend is the use of Vcaps, a capsule of plant origin. Vcaps allow consumers to enjoy these products without compromising such lifestyle choices as religious or vegetarian preferences.

Industrial Applications

Capsules provide "precision packaging" for small, delicate, and/or light sensitive products. Safe and environmentally-friendly, the capsule shell provides a versatile and inexpensive way to package precise quantities of solids, semi-solids, or liquids.

Our product development teams are excited to work with you on new application possibilities for capsule products. Contact us for additional information.
