ACG Capsules (Mumbai, India), a subsidiary of ACG Group, has introduced a new line of Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) capsules that meet a wide variety of pharmaceutical and nutraceutical needs. The new ACGcaps H+ capsule is clean label, vegetarian, and contains a no-gelling agent suitable for hygroscopic and moisture-sensitive formulations. The capsule complies with requirements for dissolution performance across all biological pH range because it is pH-independent and non-ionic, says the company. The capsule also reduces cross-linking problems, which can occur in gelatin-based capsules.
“The new and enhanced range of HPMC capsules is designed to give pharma and nutraceutical customers added peace of mind by providing product protection and desired formulation release,” said Selwyn Noronha, CEO for ACG Capsules, in a press release. “The new line contains no gelatin, wheat, gluten, animal by-products, or starch, making it ideal for supporting clean label claims and vegetarian diets.”
ACGcaps H+ are suitable for filling granules, powders, and pellets.
