Which Type Of Capsule Should I Buy?

  Empty capsules provide a cost-effective way for anyone to make their herbal and dietary supplements.

  Most capsules are made of gelatin, which is still a very popular option. Gelatin capsules are affordable, easy to digest, hold ingredients well, and have a smooth surface for use in capsule filling machines. The gelatin capsules are all-natural, made with only bovine collagen and water, and are guaranteed to be non-toxic, kosher, and halal certified. While clear gelatin capsules are the most common, Capsule Supplies offers a variety of colored gelatin capsules ranging in size from 000 (largest) to 5 (smallest​​​).

  Those looking for capsules of non-animal origin can choose from our vegetarian HPMC (Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose), plant cellulose from pine or poplar, or our empty pullulan capsules, which are made from organic tapioca starch. 100% natural, these capsules contain no parabens, gelatin, wheat, or animal products. Vegetarian capsules are usually only available in clear, but Capsule Supplies are available in sizes 0 and 00 in white.
