Vegetable Capsules (HPMC)

Vegetable Capsules (HPMC)

Plant based capsules are the capsules of choice for natural and sensitive ingredients. They appeal to consumers with a wide range of lifestyle choices and religious preferences (natural, vegetarian, Kosher and Halal).

Healsee is proud to be the world's first and only vertically integrated producer of vegetable capsules. Decades of experience in the production of food and pharmaceutical grade hypromellose transfers through to the production of our vegetable capsules. This ensures full traceability and stable supply. Healsee capsules are the most cost efficient vegetable capsules available in today's market.

Healsee vegetable capsules are produced from hypromellose, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose or HPMC. Hypromellose capsules are preferred over gelatin capsules for hygroscopic products and for formulations that may react chemically with gelatin.

Healsee vegetable capsules are plant-based, and suitable for consumption by individuals with specific dietary preferences and those with religious backgrounds. They are non-GMO and free of gluten, preservatives and allergens, therefore they are considered a clean label product.
