Edible shell empty gelatin capsules are small, cylindrical shells made from gelatin that can be filled with various powders, supplements, or medicines for oral consumption. The capsules are typically colorless, odorless, and tasteless, and are available in a range of sizes and shapes to accommodate different dosages and administration methods.
Gelatin is a protein derived from collagen, which is extracted from the bones and connective tissues of animals such as cows, pigs, and fish. It is a commonly used material for making capsules due to its biodegradability, stability, and low toxicity.
Edible shell empty gelatin capsules are a popular choice for encapsulating a variety of substances, such as vitamins, herbs, and pharmaceuticals, as they can protect the contents from light, moisture, and air, and make them easier to swallow. They are also convenient for precise dosing and can be easily transported.
It is important to note that gelatin capsules are not suitable for vegetarians or vegans, as they are made from animal-derived products. In addition, gelatin capsules may not be appropriate for people with certain dietary restrictions or allergies.
