Vegetarian Softgels Manufacturing
Vegetarian Substitutes for Gelatin
The steady rise of vegetarian softgel manufacturers in the USA has been in response to changing consumer trends in the market. With more health awareness and environmental concerns emerging throughout the past decade, people around the world are searching for healthier options to accommodate their lifestyle, spending power, and nutrition. Vegetarian omega-3 supplements meet this demand through advanced, stable manufacturing and ingredients that avoid the animal by-products of traditional softgels. With the right marketing and a key understanding of what vegetarian supplements can offer, distributors can take advantage of this growing market for consumers actively looking for alternative options.
The traditional process for producing gelatin involves boiling animal tissues and bones until they congeal into a gel-like substance. As such, many seemingly vegetarian items are rendered non-vegetarian by the inclusion of gelatin in their ingredients. Common examples include marshmallows, yogurt, candies, desserts, and gel-capsules. Although vegetarian replacements cannot perfectly replicate the thickening and gelling properties of gelatin, products such as agar agar, red seaweed, and vegetable gums provide you with a variety of close alternatives.

A Variety of Vegetarian Alternatives
Tapioca soft-gels offer the best specialized soft-gel technologies and solutions for real human health due to the 100% vegetarian and non-animal sources. The appeal and potential for vegetarian products are rapidly expanding beyond the group of people. People avoid animal products for ethical/personal reasons. This includes the much larger base of consumers seeking healthier, cleaner supplement labels. Tapioca vegetable soft-gels can replace gelatin in supplements, offering patented, 100% vegetarian, non-GMO Project Verified, non-animal materials.
Vegetable gums are common ingredients in ice cream, chewing gum, and gluten-free baked goods. Common examples include guar gum and xantham gum. Guar gum is commonly ground or flaked, dissolves in liquids easily and is a very effective thickening agent. However, its gelatin-like properties vary with its quality, temperature, and pH. Xantham gum is more effective at increasing a liquid’s viscosity and retains this property at a broader temperature and pH range. Despite xantham’s higher stability, vegetable gums do not retain their gelling and thickening properties as well as gelatin and seaweed-derived alternatives.
