Choosing a Capsule Type for Your Supplement

Choosing a Capsule Type for Your Supplement

Choosing a Capsule Type for Your SupplementWith the wide variety of capsules available for your supplement, there’s a good chance that you are struggling to find the right one for you. Knowing the various types of capsules that are available and the sizes they are available in can ensure you are creating a product that meets the dietary restrictions of your customers or maintain the correct dissolution for your chosen formula. In this article, we will explain capsule type options as well as the benefits of using each of them to encapsulate your formula.

Bovine/Porcine Gelatin

Bovine/Porcine gelatin capsules are the most affordable option for encapsulation because they don’t take any dietary restrictions into account. If your product is being designed for an open market that doesn’t have any restrictions, this will typically be the best option for you. However, JW Nutritional also has the ability to encapsulate your formula with Bovine Gelatin to remain halal compliant.


In recent years, more athletes are transitioning to a vegetarian lifestyle to maintain a healthy diet. Vcaps are composed of inert vegetable cellulose with no fillers or binders to create a great alternative to animal-based capsules. For improved dissolution, JW Nutritional uses no gelling agent to reduce variability that comes with pH value.


If you have a product that needs to be protected from stomach acid and only dissolve in the small intestine, DRcaps™ will be the best option for you. Not only does this remove the need for acid-resistant coatings, the capsules themselves meet the needs of a wide variety of dietary restrictions including vegan, non-GMO, vegetarian, halal and kosher. While more expensive than Bovine/Porcine Gelatin, this ensures you aren’t limiting your target audiences.


JW Nutritional can manufacture your capsules with a wide variety of capsule options, color options and dietary options. With the inclusion of our complete packaging solutions, clients can receive a complete product that is ready for order fulfillment.
