Shaping a greener future, one plant-based soft capsule at a time

More consumers than ever are paying close attention to product labels – looking out for ingredients that are clean, plant-based and sustainably sourced. To meet these health-conscious preferences, an increasing number of dietary supplement manufacturers are switching from traditional gelatin-based capsules to vegetarian alternatives; however, this comes with technical barriers.

Despite its challenges, IFF’s Pharma Solutions thinks the transition to plant-based ingredients is worth it. We have the expertise to overcome complexities associated with plant-sourced ingredients, including processing speed, heat stability, taste-masking and swallowability, to inspire supplements that are greener and function better. Discover how we can help you unlock the next generation of plant-powered soft capsule solutions.
