What is hypromellose hollow capsule?

Update:09 May 2020

Hypromellose is a derivative of plant fibers. Its main components are composed of plant cell walls and polysaccharides. Its molecular structure is very stable and its film-forming properties are excellent. Three major characteristics of plant capsules:

1. Safety: Since hypromellose is derived from non-transgenic plants, commonly known as plant-derived hollow capsules, its harmful substance residues are far lower than traditional gelatin hollow capsules, which itself does not contain protein and amino acids In addition to the special production process, it is difficult for bacteria to be contaminated again, and there is no worry of residual chloroethanol, which is safer.

2. Stability: Hypromellose turbulent hollow capsules have a water content of 5% -7%, and require a water content of up to 3%. It is suitable for filling various types of content to ensure that it has no cross-linking reaction and is composed of daughter molecules. Stable, more suitable for filling oxygen-sensitive, quick-release drugs, making the contents safer, dissolving more thoroughly, and more effective.

3. Universality: Hypromellose hollow capsules have low water content and stable molecular structure, and are particularly suitable for the filling of traditional Chinese medicine preparations. The products do not require harsh gelatin hollow capsules for storage, transportation, environment, and geographical requirements, and can meet the requirements of various contents Because it is a plant fiber that has no side effects on the human body, it also provides new options for vegetarians and people of different religions.
