Vegetarian Soft Capsules: Achieving High Yields and Efficient Production through Raw Material Selection - Webinar

Webinar-Vegetarian Soft Capsules: Achieving High Yields and Efficient Production through Raw Material Selection - Webinar

Webinar Information
Start Date: Nov 11, 2020 - 03:00 PM UTC


Responding to the general consumer trend towards clean-label and non-animal products, the dietary supplements industry has begun to shift away from gelatin soft capsules towards plant-based soft capsules. At best, various established veggie soft capsule technologies represent a sufficient, but frequently not optimal, combination of soft capsule quality, manufacturing efficiency and yield.  

In this webinar, vegetarian soft capsule shell formulations will be compared on the basis of suitability to form superior quality products and achieve high efficiency production, helping manufacturers understand what is best for specific products.

Join DuPont experts as they discuss best practices for vegetarian soft capsule production. In this session you will learn:  
  • Simple techniques to compare different systems. 
  • Raw material selection during soft capsule development and manufacturing.
  • How film tensile properties relate to encapsulation performance.

A Live Q&A will be hosted after the presentation, make sure to register to participate!
