Soft capsules dissolve in the stomach at body temperature. When exposed to a hot and humid environment above body temperature, a portion of the capsule shell dissolves causing the capsules to adhere to each other. Heat and humidity resistant soft capsules have been developed to resolve this problem during storage. They are ideal for products that may be placed in places with high temperatures or high humidity.
Enhanced heat- and moisture-resistance allows these chewy capsules to accommodate a greater variety of ingredients.
After opening the jar and storing it at room temperature for one week, the heat and moisture-resistant capsules did not adhere to each other.
