Vitafoods Europe Review: Vegetarian Capsules

May 24, 2013

Capsugel highlighted its vegetarian capsule offerings at Vitafoods Europe.

Capsules specialist Capsugel (Greenwood, SC) highlighted its vegetarian capsule offerings at Vitafoods Europe. During the show, Nicolas Madit, PhD, the company’s business development manager, presented a seminar titled “Vegetarian Capsules: Versatility in Addressing Market Complex and Diversified Applications.”

Among the company’s offerings are VCaps Plus capsules, a vegetarian option developed without secondary gelling agents for faster, more consistent dissolution; and vegetarian Licaps, which are liquid-filled hard capsules. Both are HPMC-based and are suited for use with organic food supplements marketed in Europe, the firm says. 

“A recent survey shows that consumers have high expectations for natural products. Our vegetarian dosage forms are an excellent opportunity to provide consumers with what they expect, and help customers gain new market share. Capsugel is pleased to be able to offer the broadest portfolio of vegetarian capsules in the [health and nutrition] industry,” Madit said.
