Pullulan is an extracellular polysaccharide produced by fermentation of the black yeast of Pullulan. Amylopectin from starch. It is an odorless white powder. Its chemical composition is mainly polymalt salt linked by α-1.4 glycosidic bonds, 1/3 of α-1.6 glycosidic bonds, and 2/3 of α-1.4 glycosidic bonds. This polysaccharide is easily soluble in water, safe, and non-toxic. Low calorific value, good acid and alkali resistance, good plasticity, good film formation, and good gas barrier properties. Because it can be used by microorganisms in nature and does not cause environmental pollution, it is called pollution-free plastic.
Pullulan is a purely natural polymer raw material made from corn starch or sugar. It is a water-soluble fiber material widely used in food and medicine fields. It is listed in the US Pharmacopoeia and the European Pharmacopoeia.
Since amylopectin is a biological fermentation product of corn, there is no risk of cross-linking reaction of protein substances in gelatin, and the stability is high.
Its non-animal source greatly addresses the potential risks of not having growth hormones or drugs in the body. Based on the concept of biological fermentation, pullulan capsules are different from traditional gelatin hollow capsules. It has technical advantages and characteristics that traditional gelatin hollow capsules do not have. It provides a good solution for eliminating the harm of mad cow disease and foot-and-mouth disease to human health.
Pullulan hollow capsules are pure natural products, completely plant-derived, without any preservatives added during the production process. The capsule has advanced technology and reasonable formula, suitable for various filling machines, and the capping rate is comparable to that of ordinary gelatin capsules. The Pullulan capsules produced by our company provide better protection for the safe use of medicines and health products and also provide more choices for vegetarians.
In addition, the pullulan capsules are suitable for national pharmacopeia standards and are identical to empty gelatin capsules in terms of shape, size, appearance, filling method, etc. Therefore, there is no need to change equipment and components during the filling process.
HGCAPS is a professional Empty Capsules Manufacturers. We offers a vertically integrated supply chain model to ensure reliable long-term supply, complete traceability and superior quality of raw materials.
