Also called “gummy caps,” center-filled soft gummies give manufacturers the ability to house a broad range of nutrients at an adequate dose in a chewable dosage format.
Rousselot (Irving, TX) announced the latest innovation in its SiMoGel range of ingredients that allow brands to develop center-filled soft gummies. Also called “gummy caps,” this format gives manufacturers the ability to house a broad range of nutrients at an adequate dose in a chewable dosage format.
“Bridging the gap between the appealing gummy delivery format and the RDI dosages required for nutraceuticals or APIs has long been a complex challenge for producers,” said Marit van der Heijden, global marketing manager, Rousselot, in a press release. “With the new SiMoGel concept for creating innovative center-filled gummy applications, we can help our customers to successfully tackle this obstacle. This supports our partners in creating premium center-filled gummies with a larger range of nutraceuticals or active pharmaceutical ingredients in higher concentrations, allowing them to differentiate their offering and meet the sophisticated expectations of today’s discerning consumers.”
With SiMoGel, traditional starch moguls are replaced by silicone moguls or blisters for starchless depositing that can be done in either flexible and easily cleanable silicone or metal molds, or directly in to blister packs. This prevents cross-contamination of ingredients, and enhances application possibilities in terms of shapes and texture.
