Plant-derived capsule : GREENCAP | Fuji Capsule Co., Ltd.

Plant-derived capsule : GREENCAP


1 Plant-derived outer shell The outer shell is made from vegetable material such as starch (from potato, tapioca, or corn) and carrageenan (from seaweed).

2 No animal smell Since the outer shell has little odor, the animal smell typical of gelatin does not permeate to the interior liquid.

3 No delay in disintegration There is no delay in disintegration because no molecular bridges develop due to reaction with substances such as aldehyde.

4 Thinner layers, smaller capsules possible It is possible to make capsules with thinner layers and smaller capsules than those made from gelatin.

5 Soft capsule possible It is also possible to make soft capsules as the material is elastic but not adhesive.
