SeaGel CAP101 and SeaGel CAP203 plant-based soft-capsule technologies from DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences (Wilmington, DE) have earned Non-GMO Project verification.

“As consumers become more informed about what goes into their daily supplements, they’re searching for products that are natural, sustainable, and non-GMO,” said Michael Baumann, global strategic marketing manager, DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences, in a press release. “Adding the iconic non-GMO butterfly to their end products helps manufacturers and brand owners provide customers with immediate assurance that a product aligns with their lifestyle needs.”

SeaGel provides increased sealing performance and reduced leakage compared to other vegetarian soft capsules in the market. It is made from seaweed, which has a higher melting point than gelatin; as a result, SeaGel is more heat stable.

“The dietary supplement market is growing rapidly, with 4,000 new products introduced each year in the United States alone,” said Benjamin Roscoe, application development & innovation manager, DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences, in a press release. “By consistently evolving alongside our customers, we’re empowering them to differentiate from competitors and meet consumer demand with safe, natural and sustainably sourced ingredients.”
