Capsules are usually made of gelling agents such as gelatin and plant derivatives. Gelatin is created by boiling down parts of cattle. It is then boiled to form a gel-like substance from the bones, hoofs, and connective tissues. Then it is allowed to cool in cool water and expand.

Gelatin is created by boiling down parts of cattle. After the process is completed, the remaining substance is tasteless, odorless, and colorless. This can then be made into gel capsules which are used every day by consumers.
Gelatin has many health benefits. The most notable is the improvement in skin and joint health. They are generally cheaper than vegetarian capsules. Vegetarian capsules are an alternative to gelatin capsules. These capsules can be made by making vegetable cellulose.
How are capsules made?
Companies have two capsule manufacturing machines at the Supplement Factory. One is semi-automatic and one is fully automated.
A semi-automatic machine is used in conjunction with a human worker. Factory associates place capsule shells inside a capsule plate according to the size of the capsule being made. The powders are then sucked into the machine. Before the caps of the capsules are placed on each capsule, the machine presses on. The plate is removed and the capsules are packed into bags.
All Supplement Factories are available to help you create high-quality capsules for your private label.
