Compared with hard capsules, soft gelatin capsules are thicker and require additional ingredients such as glycerin to obtain their soft texture. Depending on the formula, the thickness of the capsule, its elasticity and its degree of residual moisture can be adjusted. Perfectly suited for liquid or semi-solid fillings, soft capsules are widely used to deliver pharmaceutical substances and a wide range of nutritional supplements, such as omega-3 fish oils. Many consumers prefer soft gelatin capsules as they are easy to use and swallow .
Hard gelatine capsules are the dosage form of choice for medicines and food supplements. They are ideal for powdered and granulated products.
GELITA® Hard Capsule Gelatine offers optimal setting properties and improved gliding characteristics. GELITA® Pharmaceutical Gelatine is considered as food and provides fast machinability, ideal dissolution properties, and an optimal protection of filled ingredients. High Bloom gelatine (between 200 and 260 g Bloom) is the best choice for the production of hard gelatine capsules. The capsule shell can be designed in such a way that the release of the active substance can be controlled and the bioavailability increased. Controlled release of the active substance can be achieved by coating the capsules.

Tablets are one of the most popular oral solid dosage (OSD) forms for pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals. They have many advantages and are both easy and cheap to produce.
In tablet production, gelatin acts as an adhesive binder and improves the stability and release of the active ingredient. And for anyone who wants to combine the benefits of tablets with those of capsules, gelatin-coated tablets, or so-called “caplets”, are also simple to manufacture and easy to swallow.
