Product overview

Vegetarian Capsules are a formed from a two-piece shell, designed to be used in conjunction with one of our capping kits. Each cap is made from Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose (HPMC), making them suitable for vegetarians and vegans with the added benefit of also being low-moisture and therefore free from spoiling.

Using empty vegetarian capsules in conjunction with a capping kit enables you to effectively produce your own supplements. This can include single ingredients that you simply don’t like the taste of, or even a combination of ingredients to create your own custom formulas. Not only does this give you added flexibility, but it will also save you money as opposed to buying pre-encapsulated products.

WHICH SIZE VEGETARIAN CAPSULES DO I NEED?

The size of the gelatin capsules you will need depends on how much powder you would like each single capsule to hold. The amount of powder that each capsule will hold when filled does depend entirely on the density of the product you are trying to encapsulate.

AS A GUIDE:

  • Size 0 gelatin capsules will generally hold between 400mg and 800mg of powder.
  • Size 00 gelatin capsules will generally hold between 550mg and 1100mg of powder.

This again all depends on the density of the product you are using.
