V-Gel™ is based on a patented non-animal gelatin replacement derived from seaweed that is a truly viable, stable, and durable non-animal gelatin substitute. Previous vegetarian softgels were brittle and had limited size and application challenges. V-Gel™ represents a technological breakthrough in utilizing the physical characteristics of carrageenan to produce a film that is as strong and durable as animal gelatin.
Softgels are an increasingly popular dosage form and a fast growing segment of the dietary supplement market. V-Gel™ makes it possible to take this trend to the next level with a non-animal shell that will satisfy your customers' vegetarian, religious, and cultural needs.
