The new starch and carrageenan vegetarian gel matrix is a result of proprietary engineering techniques.
Robinson Pharma, Inc. has completed commercialization requirements for vegetarian softgel production and is now fulfilling orders. The new starch and carrageenan vegetarian gel matrix is a result of proprietary engineering techniques that have led to the creation of a stable vegetarian supplement. Robinson Pharma said it invested in all aspects of manufacturing operations, including new technology that enables it to exceed current industry expectations.
Vegetarian softgels comply with growing consumer demand for animal-free supplements, the company noted. Vegetarian softgel capabilities were previously implemented into Robinson Pharma’s varied portfolio of dosage forms for manufacturing back in early May 2015 as part of an ongoing commitment to supporting clients in their various marketing and brand image needs. After many successful trial runs involving vegetarian softgels to test product and process robustness, the company is now offering commercial batches to current and new clientele.
Robinson Pharma suggested that vegetarian softgels offer numerous advantages over traditional animal gelatin softgels, including premium delivery/dissolution, superior thermal stability properties, and ready-made claims for the vegetarian/vegan market. Currently, the company is incorporating colorants to enhance presentation for client preference, and has successfully encapsulated light paste products and ingredients such as biotin and CoQ10. Pilot batches of vegetarian softgels containing more complex pastes such as multivitamins, prenatal vitamins, memory support, eye health, and weight management formulas are being initiated.
Vegetarian softgels by Robinson Pharma are also capable of incorporating numerous oil products for a variety of dietary supplement projects, including vitamin E, flaxseed oil, CLA, and coconut oil—all of which are vegetarian compliant.
Stability testing for vegetarian softgel products is currently in effect.
