titanium dioxide-free food supplement capsules

Titanium Dioxide-Free Color Options

Our TiO2-free capsules’ portfolio consists of a preset palette of colors and masking options for hard gelatin capsules and a wide color range of HPMC capsules for nutraceutical applications.   

In response to growing customer requirements, we were the first to introduce a capsule using an alternative opacifier with the launch of the Capsugel® Vcaps® Plus White Opal® HPMC capsule. This white, semi-opaque, plant-based capsule gives your product a natural look, while helping to meet regional regulatory requirements.

For customers looking for a color capsule without the use of synthetic colorants or chemically- processed natural colorants, Capsugel® Vcaps® Plus food colored HPMC capsules come in six colors, naturally obtained from vegetables, spices or algae.

Lonza Capsules & Health Ingredients offers a variety of food supplement capsule options to help meet your clean-label, titanium dioxide-free requirements
