Custom Capsule Manufacturing

Blending

Before encapsulation, your formula must be blended to ensure even distribution of ingredients in each capsule.

Encapsulation

Once all ingredients in your formula are blended, they are filled in capsule shells. We offer to encapsulate it in gelatin, vegetable and pullulan capsule shells.

Polishing & Inspection

Each capsule is polished of any excess powder for a clean finished look and triple inspected for any defects.

Testing

After capsules are manufactured, post-inspection, we run identity, potency, micro, and heavy metal tests to ensure pharmaceutical grade quality.

Capsules May Be Used Very Often

Since capsules are believed to be an excellent form of encapsulation, they are still used today. Depending on what the blend is, it may be more sufficient to encapsulate a formula into a capsule rather than another method. 

Choosing a capsule has its own potential advantages over other types of encapsulations. If you are looking for something that is already widely accepted, a reliable method to hold a wide variety of blends and a capsule that can have its color customized to better fit your formula than you should give capsules a good look.

Capsule Shell Choices

Capsule shells are distinguished between two categories:

  1. Gelatin capsule
  2. Vegetarian capsule

With that being said, it is essential to know the key differences between the two for personal reasons as well as help you better fulfill your consumer’s needs.

Gelatin is made from animal by-products derived from beef only such as bovine or cows. The part in which it comes from is called the collagen, which is the soft protein that connects the skin, bones, muscles, and tendons of the animal. A slew of potential health benefits come with the gelatin shell since it contains protein and two amino acids; Glycine and Proline.

When dealing with vegetarian capsule shells, there are two main variations:

  1. Hypromellose
  2. Pullulan

Hypromellose, officially known as Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose (HPMC), only contains HPMC and purified water. This option includes no preservatives, animal by-products and is GMO-free, gelatin-free, gluten-free, starch-free and BSE free.

The other veggie capsule shell option is Pullulan. Pullulan is a water-soluble polysaccharide produced by the fermentation of starch/sugar by the fungus Aerobasidum pullulans. It is 100% natural, starch-free, gluten-free, preservative-free, and GMO-free. Unlike HPMC, Pullulan is 100% natural because it is not produced by any chemical modification.

Common Capsule Filling Manufacturers

Capsule filling can be stressful, but it is a vital part of the capsule manufacturing process. There are a few different types of capsule filling machines. The typical variants include manual, semi-automatic, and automatic filling. Once you choose the kind of machine you want to use, you then must decide what brand of machine you want to get. There are many capsule filling machine brands such as:

  • Capsugel
  • LFA Machines
  • Qualicaps
  • Unilife LLC
  • Torpac, Inc
  • Etc.
To use the machine, you would need the capsules to be empty and prepared. Take an empty hard shell gelatin capsule for example, that capsule is a vital part of the capsule manufacturing process. The empty capsules are required to be ready in bulk to get them all filled more efficiently. Depending on the type of machine, the process will be different to fill said capsule, but in the end, the same results will be presented.
