Main Benefits Of Our Empty Gelatin Capsules
7Our hard gelatin capsules are GMO free and derive from completely natural bovine sources. Gelatin or “gel” capsules are usually derived from beef or pork along with water and a plasticizing agent such as glycerine to provide durability. Gelatin is an essential component for human consumption and development.
Gelatin (sometimes spelt Gelatine in the UK) is an animal protein which is known as Generally Recognised as Safe (GRAS) in pharmaceutical and food consumption by the majority of international regulatory bodies.
Capsules are a very common method for dosing supplements and pharmaceutical ingredients. Gelatin has been used since the late 19th century to produce empty capsules and is still the most commonly used ingredient for their production to today. It is derived from natural bovine sources. Gelatin therefore does not always suit everyone's dietary needs.

It also completely eliminates the possibility of consuming a banned substance if you are a professional athlete.
If you are looking to create your own supplements you most likely will be best suited to our 00 capsule size as they are compatible with our manual ProCap capsule filler.
This is because it is the largest capsule size we offer so that you can fit in the most amount of active ingredients.
Research & Development
Whatever the goal of your capsules, in the R&D stage it’s likely you will want to test different dosages to see the difference in results. To do this, take a look at the capsule size chart and see what dosages your active ingredient will fit in which sizes. From there you can choose which sizes make the most sense and start testing.
Capsules are often used when to clinical trials as they can be quicker to produce than pill based formulations. As we have stock in locations across the world we can dispatch different sizes quickly helping you stay flexible whilst creating your next product.
