Nutritional Supplements

In the global nutrition and supplement market, consumer demands for natural and cleaner labels continues to drive the development of new and innovative products. Additionally, regulatory agencies are also increasingly active in ensuring the safety of food additives used in our daily lives.

As ingredients such as Titanium Dioxide or Magnesium Stearate come under increased consumer and regulatory scrutiny, it has created a need for film coatings and excipients that are free from these for use in dietary and nutritional supplements, as well as pharmaceutical tablets. Kerry’s Clean Label Film Coatings and Excipients are underpinned by our deep understanding of the science and regulation of nutritional supplements.

Capsules

One of the major challenges in formulating capsules is maintaining a uniform fill weight, which is important for accurate dosing. Lactose has been used for years in capsules as a filling/blending aid due to its low hygroscopicity, inert properties, and most importantly, the availability of various grades with controlled particle size and bulk density. Kerry offers every grade of lactose, including Anhydrous, Spray Dried, and Crystalline Monohydrate, and offers a wide range of particles sizes within each lactose type to ensure we can provide any desired particle size or bulk density for accurate blending with any type of API.
