Gelatine is a natural excipient widely used in the pharmaceutical industry.
Its unique film-forming properties mean it performs perfectly in the production of both hard and soft capsules.
Gelatine-based capsules have a high degree of impermeability to oxygen, resulting in a very high level of stability that protects the encapsulated active ingredients.
The melting point of gelatine is also perfectly suited to capsule-based products designed for oral consumption.
No other natural or synthetic hydrocolloid delivers the same level of performance as gelatine. Furthermore, gelatine is a natural product that contains no chemical additives, so it can be classified as clean label.
Weishardt’s premium pharmaceutical-grade gelatine is manufactured to deliver optimal capsule solubility, significantly enhancing the release of the encapsulated active ingredients.
