Manufacturing Excellence Across a Comprehensive Array of Supplement Product Types

Capsules consist of a hard, smooth casing that is filled with the powder or liquid oil of the supplement ingredient(s) it contains. The key benefits of capsules is they allow for bitter or unpleasant tasting ingredients to not be tasted when being ingested.

Capsules are available in 2 forms:

  • Gel Caps (Gelatin Casing)
  • Veggie Caps (Plant-Based Casing)

Our facility contains multiple machines capable of producing hundreds of thousands of Capsules per day. Our flagship BOSCH encapsulation machine is able to manufacture millions of capsules a week.

  • 140 cycles per min
  • 92,000 Capsules per hour

Standard capsules are made in two parts by dipping metal pins in a gelling agent solution. Before use, the two halves are separated, the capsule is filled with powder or more normally pellets made by the process of extrusion and spheronization (either by placing a compressed slug of powder into one half of the capsule or by filling one half of the capsule with loose powder) and the other half of the capsule is pressed on. With the compressed slug method, weight varies less between capsules. However, the machinery used to manufacture them are more complex.

The powder or spheroids inside the capsule contains the active ingredients and any excipients, such as binders, disintegrants, fillers, glidant, and preservatives as needed by the formula used for that particular product.

What are capsules?

Tablets allow the supplement ingredients to be concentrated, which generally results in a higher dose in the finished product when compared to a capsule or softgel. Depending on the supplement, certain tablets may be split or crushed, making them easier to take for individuals who have difficulty swallowing pills. However, certain ingredients have an unpleasant taste, which can be noticeable when taking the supplement in tablet form.

Tablets are available in 2 forms:

  • Swallowable Tablets (Standard Pill Form)
  • Chewable Tablets (Flavored Form)

Tablets are produced by compressing the powder or granules of the active ingredient with or without excipients. Excipients are ingredients used as fillers, binders, and bulking agents, or to otherwise assist in the manufacturing process or improve the finished supplement product. For example, vitamin C tablets may contain additional ingredients such as cellulose, silicon dioxide, magnesium stearate, and stearic acid as components of the tablet.

Chewable tablets, such as chewable vitamin C, are designed to be chewed and broken down in the mouth prior to swallowing. Chewable tablets are often flavored and colored with natural and/or artificial ingredients, such as sweeteners. Chewable tablets provide a solution for individuals who have trouble swallowing, and the taste is intended to make taking supplements more appealing, such as with chewable vitamin C for children.

Supplements in powder form make up approximately 14% of supplements available in the United States. Powders are typically dissolved in water or another liquid when they are taken. Unlike capsules or tablets, they do not need to be disintegrated during digestion, so they are considered to be more easily absorbed. A powder format can also provide a higher dose than supplements in pills, reducing the need to take multiple capsules or tablets. Common examples of powders include probiotic powder and protein powder.

Our contract manufacturing facility contains a high performance powder manufacturing line that allows for thousands of kilos of powder to be manufactured, and bottled/bagged per day.

  • 1,500 Kilo V-Blender
  • 25,000 Bottles/Bags Per Day

Pros

  • Suitable for individuals who have trouble swallowing pills
  • Typically considered to be easily absorbed
  • Provides a higher supplement dosage than in pill form

Cons

  • Bitter or unpleasant tastes are more noticeable
  • Supplement dose may be less precise/consistant
  • Needs to be mixed into water/liquid to consume
What is a powder supplement

Softgels are a form of pills that contain a liquid supplement ingredient within a gelatin capsule, which is commonly derived from beef or pork gelatin. The gelatin shell helps to protect the contents against spoilage from oxidation and UV rays. Softgels are considered to be easier to swallow than capsules and are generally tasteless or have a mild taste from the softgel casing.

Our partners facility manufactures the softgels while our in house packaging lines are specially made to bottle, package, and label finished product to be shipped out.

  • 300,000 bottles packaged per day
  • in-house custom formulations available

  • Gelatin shell protects inner contents from spoilage + UV Rays
  • Generally considered to be easier to swallow than capsules
  • Allows for certain ingredients that are not able to be in powder/capsule/tablet form

Cons

  • Often contains animal ingredients (e.g. Gelatin)
  • May have a mild taste from the softgel casing
  • Generally contain a lower supplement dose than tablets

Similar to chewable tablets, supplements in gummy formats, such as gummy vitamins, are designed to provide a convenient and tasty way to take the supplement. Approximately 1% of dietary supplements in the United States are sold in gummy format. In addition to individual gummy vitamins, such as vitamins C or D gummies, you may often see multivitamins, fish oil, and melatonin gummies.

Our partners facility manufactures the gummies while our in house gummy packaging line is specially made to bottle, package, and label finished product to be shipped out.

  • 250,000 bottles packaged per day
  • in-house custom formulations available

Pros

  • Suitable for individuals who have difficulty swallowing pills
