The ACGcaps H+ capsules work to meet pharmaceutical and nutraceutical needs while remaining gelatin-free.

ACG Capsules introduced the ACGcaps H+ capsule for pharmaceutical and nutraceutical needs on Aug. 19, 2019. The new line of hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose (HPMC) capsules are pH-independent, non-ionic, work without a gelling agent, and are suitable for hygroscopic and moisture-sensitive formulations.

The capsules comply with the requirements of dissolution performances across all biological pH ranges while working to reduce cross-linking problems, which occur with gelatin-based capsules and cause a limited dissolution performance.ACGcaps H+ capsules can also be used for filling granules, powders, pellets for prescription and non-prescription pharmaceutical ingredients, nutraceutical dietary supplements, and traditional medicines. 

“The new and enhanced range of HPMC capsules is designed to give pharma and nutraceutical customers added peace of mind by providing product protection and desired formulation release. The new line contains no gelatin, wheat, gluten, animal by-products, or starch, making it ideal for supporting clean label claims and vegetarian diets,”said Selwyn Noronha, CEO for ACG Capsules, in a company press release.
