WHAT ARE VEGETARIAN CAPSULES?
Our empty Vegetarian Capsules, also known as Vcaps are, not surprisingly, aimed at vegetarians and vegans who are unable to use many encapsulated products due to the vast majority utilising gelatin as the capsule source. As with our entire empty capsules range, Vcaps give complete flexibility whilst also saving you money.
Vegetarian Capsules are a formed from a two-piece shell, designed to be used in conjunction with one of our capping kits. Each Vcap 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 vegetarian capsules that you require depends on how much powder you would like each individual capsule to hold. Additionally, the amount of powder that each vegetarian capsule will hold when filled, depends entirely on the density of the product you are trying to encapsulate.
FROM TESTING WE HAVE FOUND THE FOLLOWING:
- Size 0 vegetarian capsules will generally hold between 400mg and 800mg of powder.
- Size 00 vegetarian capsules will generally hold between 550mg and 1100mg of powder.
If you plan on using a supplement that has a small suggested usage, then clearly the size 0 vegetarian capsules would be best suited. If the suggested usage is particularly small (ie less than 400mg) then you may even need to look at combining it with a filler (we would recommend maltodextrin as it is very free-flowing) in order to ensure that you achieve correctly dosed capsules.
If you are looking to perhaps combine multiple different powders, then size 00 Vcaps would be more suited due to being the largest of the vegetarian capsules within our range. Additionally this is the size we would recommend for capping low density products, or products that require larger serving sizes.
