Innovative film coating designed to manage the challenges of moisture sensitive nutritional supplements
Colorcon has announced the launch of a new Nutrafinish Dietary Supplement Coating to address the needs of our customers in the nutritional market for the moisture protection of tablets, without the use of titanium dioxide (TiO2).
With increasing pressure from consumers for label friendly ingredients there is a continuing drive to eliminate the use of TiO2 in products regulated as food. To remain competitive and satisfy consumers, manufacturers are looking to meet this need with sustainable ingredients that are label friendly while not compromising on product quality, manufacturing efficiency, or cost-in-use.
Annabel Bordmann, Film Coatings General Manager said: “Food supplements tablets often contain ingredients that are moisture sensitive and have a speckled or unsightly appearance which requires a protective coating that gives both an appealing finished appearance and protection from moisture. These new coatings deliver the TiO2 free label friendly claim the industry and consumers are demanding and provide functional moisture protection without compromising productivity and overall cost”.
With Colorcon’s in-depth knowledge of materials, coating technology and regulatory needs, these new formulations are designed to deliver protection
Dr Ali Rajabi-Siahboomi added: “Colorcon leads the evolution in coating products for nutritional and dietary supplements by bringing to the market a unique coating that delivers not only good moisture protection but also good opacity and production efficiency without the use of TiO2. With Colorcon’s in-depth knowledge of materials, coating technology and regulatory needs, these new formulations are designed to deliver protection from environmental moisture while being easy to use and cost effective”.
Through its extensive portfolio of fully formulated Nutrafinish Dietary Supplement Coatings Colorcon provides scope for customers to reduce complexity and time-to-market by delivering high-quality products, with ingredients carefully selected from commonly used food ingredients or approved food additives that meet local regulatory requirements. This is all backed by Colorcon’s superior and dedicated technical support, along with regulatory expertise.
