Pullulan (Vegan) Capsules
Our vegan capsules are made from pullulan, a substance derived from water extracted from fungi grown on starch substrate, similar to the way a mushroom grows on fertile ground. No toxic chemicals are involved in the production or extraction processes, so the product is very natural and environmentally-friendly. And of course, there are no excipients or additives of any kind, like sodium lauryl sulfate.
PULLULAN CAPSULE INGREDIENTS: Fermented tapioca starch (pullulan), purified water, carrageenan (from seaweed, < 1%).
Our vegetarian pullulan capsules:
- Are earth-friendly. No toxic chemicals involved. Completely natural and environmentally-friendly.
- Have a stronger oxygen barrier than gelatin or HPMC capsules. Any fillings sensitive to oxygen, such a Vitamin C, retain appearance and integrity 300 times better than regular HPMC and 9 times better than gelatin capsules. Pullulan is superior in protecting nutrients and APIs from oxidation, improves stability, and extends product shelf life, reducing your overall costs and potential over runs.
- Have visual appeal. Organic capsules are brillantly clear and visually appealing to your customers!
- Are highly compatible with encapsulation machines. Organic capsules are non-brittle and retain moisture as well as, if not better than gelatin capsules and run flawlessly on high-speed encapsulation machine
