Heat, light and content ingredients typically compromise the solubility of gelatin film, used in soft capsules as the external shell, triggering a disintegration delay and flushing active ingredients out of the body before they can be absorbed. To prevent this situation, this soft capsule uses the external shell in our original formula to ensure that it dissolves immediately after ingestion for digestion and absorption of active ingredients.
Disintegration-delay prevention film can be categorized into gelatin film and plant-based film, which can be selected according to the type of capsule content and the intended image of the finished product. There are several formulas available for gelatin film, and we can suggest an optimum option to suit desired product characteristic.
The disintegration performance of health foods is an important characteristic, subject even to surprise inspections by the National Consumer Affairs Center of Japan.

Response to Foods with Function Claims
Support for the development of Foods with Function Claims, which have disintegration performance requirementsThe Foods with Function Claims system stipulate that a manufacturer must provide data on disintegration performing as one of the “items concerning production, manufacturing and quality control” in relation to processed foods in the dietary supplement format. We can assist not only in suggesting a suitable formula but also with data description, labeling and notification to authorities.
