Pullulan capsules – Cleancaps

Pullulan capsules answer the need of the most demanding customers, looking for vegetarian plant-based clean supplements. Pullulan is a polysaccharide naturally obtained from a fermentation process of starch. It has been successfully used in food and pharmaceutical applications for over 40 years.

Answer the need of the most demanding customers.

Providing the lowest oxygen permeability amongst all types of capsules, these capsules protect your precious ingredients from oxidation. Pullulan is not susceptible to cross-linking, making Pullulan capsules particularly suitable for formulas including vitamins.

Naturally transparent is the future

The future is exciting, and innovation is key in our continuously evolving society, but we also have to consider the effect on our planet. Our capsules are produced clean and sustainable. And for this reason we only offer transparent capsules.

Extremely efficient

Our Pullulan capsules are produced through a vertically integrated process.
The capsule production facility is part of a leading Asian producer of Pullulan.
