Our partners at Roquette have developed LYCAGEL®, a technology based on a modified pea starch composition which overcomes the many manufacturing challenges associated with the production of robust and stable vegetarian softgel capsules. We are pleased to support Roquette by offering our customers access to this novel and innovative technology.
Some of the highlights this technology has to offer:
• Utilizes existing rotary die gelatin softgel manufacturing processes with only minor adjustments.
• Pharma excipient grade availability for drug product (OTC, Rx) softgel applications.
• Strong and durable capsules with seal integrity to avoid leaker defects.
• Reproducible and fills possible in different capsule sizes and shapes.
There continues to be growing interest at many healthcare and nutrition companies to seek today’s plant-based alternatives encounter technical challenges of seal leakage, cross-linking, heat sensitivity and limitations of fill utility.
