HOW TO DEVELOP NATURAL PRODUCTS, QUICKLY, WITHOUT COMPROMISING ON QUALITY OR PRODUCT PERFORMANCE?

Consumers are increasingly mindful about what they’re putting in and on their bodies. ​A growing portion of the population is shopping with an eye focused on product attributes. They want as few ingredients as possible or free of preservatives and artificial colors.​

The consumer desire for “free-from” products influences their purchasing behavior even when functionally beneficial ingredients are present. Consumers are paying more attention to what they buy—and that goes for foods, beverages and non-food categories like personal care, vitamins and supplements.

Meet our vegetarian softgel technology, VersagelTM, a versatile option for the encapsulation of high viscous, semisolid or high pH fill contents

 

Since its beginnings, vegetarian soft capsules were promoted as products offered to religious, ethnic or groups with dietary restrictions which avoid the consumption of animal-based materials. Besides these reasons, the chemistry of the polymer materials used in their manufacturing results in a product with certain advantages over the conventional soft gelatin capsules.

Versagel Technology

Materials currently used are non-ionic polymers, mainly carbohydrates that are low reactive and therefore stable. Some of them have applications as packing materials due to its mechanical resistance and barrier properties. Since these are non-charged polymers, they are more stable than proteins at extreme pH values and moderate ionic strengths.
