About Delayed-Release Capsules

Delayed-release capsules are ideal for nutraceutical applications and fillings. These capsules are enteric-coated and gastric acid-resistant, preventing the release of drugs in the stomach. This controlled release mechanism not only enhances the absorption rate but ensures a steady and consistent nutrient delivery to the body. Therefore, the capsules are designed to dissolve in the small intestine for a more targeted absorption, making delayed-release capsules ideal for probiotic and enzymatic formulations.

Delayed-release properties start about 45 minutes later than a typical capsule breaks down in the stomach, delivering capsule contents directly to the intestines. They can come in a variety of colors and appearances, including: clear, white opaque, and opaque with color.
