Diverse challenges in the capsule industry have allowed new shell ingredients to break into the market. All exhibit different characteristics. However, in the case of rising demand for clean label products, rising costs and the high importance of operational effectiveness, sophisticated fill formulations and stringent regulatory pressures, gelatin offers a future-proof solution to meet these capsule challenges.

  • The main factors influencing excipient choice include clean label, technical performance and safety.
  • Gelatin is optimally suitable for capsule performance as it supports API release and dissolution.
  • Machinability, weight variations and cost-efficiency are additional considerations in excipient selection.
