About Pullulan Capsules

Pullulan capsules are clear, shiny vegetarian capsules made from pullulan polysaccharide (a water-soluble mucopolysaccharide) and auxiliary materials from the fermentation of natural plants such as tapioca or corn. They contain no chemical additives or preservatives and are starch-free and biodegradable. The encapsulation process is carefully monitored for uniformity and accuracy according to strict quality control measures and Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP), making our pullulan capsules a reliable choice for both supplements and pharmaceuticals. 

This capsule’s oxygen transmittance is about one-eighth of the HPMC capsules, which means oxidation degrades the capsule less over time — in short it has excellent oxygen barrier properties.

As polysaccharide capsules, they also have a stable rate of drug release and are a great vegetarian alternative to gelatin capsules. This makes them more eco-friendly than traditional capsules made with animal byproducts. Furthermore, these empty capsules are compatible with a wide range of dry ingredients, which makes them versatile. And even with their compatibility with a variety of fill ingredients, pullulan capsules will not interact or cross-link with said ingredients or materials. Pullulan capsules are available in organic and non-organic options, further adding to their appeal for many consumers focused on a healthy and natural lifestyle free of additives and preservatives.
