Addressing clean label supplement demands

 11 Feb 2019

Lonza recently revealed the global launch of its latest dosage form innovation: Capsugel Vcaps Plus plant-based capsules. The first of the next-generation clean label solutions to be marketed worldwide is the Vcaps Plus Purple Carrot capsule, following the successful introduction of the Vcaps Plus Blue Spirulina capsule in Europe earlier this year. The high-performance capsule shell is made using plant-based hypromellose (HPMC) and water only, without any preservatives. A colorant derived from purple carrots is used to match the desired shade as closely as possible, while maintaining a natural appearance in the finished supplement. Achieving unique visual appeal, the purple carrot color also provides masking capabilities.
