If your brand doesn’t use a “proprietary blend” in its formula, there’s a good chance that you are transparently showing any excipients that may be listed on the supplement facts panel on your products. While considered inactive ingredients, supplement excipients may be categorized under different designation types including coating agents, flavoring agents, lubricants, binders, fillers, diluents or disintegrates. But what exactly does this mean for the supplement as a whole and what role do excipients actually play? Keep reading to find out!
As the shift to a more health-conscious approach to supplement manufacturing becomes standard, many brands and the audiences they sell to are looking for clean products that don’t have unnecessary fillers. While there is likely a multitude of filler ingredients that likely aren’t required for the process, others are vital for improving shelf life or helping to keep the active ingredients stable. But how do you know what to avoid and what to allow as a supplement excipient?
Standard supplement excipients include natural flavoring that helps mask unpleasant tastes that may accompany a supplement in its raw form while disintegrates are used to make the tablet, powder or other supplement form dissolve in water. With the wide variety of product types available on the market, you can imagine it might be tricky to pick-and-choose which excipients you are comfortable with as a whole and, instead, you should focus on a per-product-type basis for the best results.
