Soft capsules dissolve in the stomach in body temperature. When left in an environment with temperature and humidity higher than those of the human body, their external shell starts to dissolve, causing capsules to stick together. Heat- and moisture-resistant soft capsules have been developed to address this issue and enable safe and secure storage. This is ideal for products that might have to be stored in places with high temperature or humidity.
Enhanced heat- and moisture-resistance allows these capsules to accommodate a greater variety of contents and adopt a chewable property.
After opening the jar and storing at room temperature for one week, heat- and moisture-resistant capsules did not cake.
Features and benefits

It is also suitable for materials that cause irritation to the stomach, fish oil including DHA, EPA and cod liver oil, as well as garlic, saw palmetto and other materials that should not stay in the stomach for a long time.
Chewable and savory
The technology may be applied to chewable products.This capsule can be designed to be softer than regular soft capsules to make it a chewable format, a perfect choice for fragrant or palatable products that should be chewed and savored.
