What are Gelatin Capsules?
Gelatin is a clear, flavorless substance extracted from animal collagen. Empty gelatin capsules are used to create homemade natural supplements, allowing for personalized nutrient combinations that can include various vitamins, minerals and herbs. This approach puts you in charge of quality control and lets you save money by purchasing the capsules and nutrients in bulk. The caps, which come in two pieces for convenient assembly, can be packed by hand or with the help of a capsule-filling kit or machine.
The most common size of empty gelatin capsules is double "00" but they are also available in single "0" and triple "000" sizes. Double "00" capsules can hold approximately 600-1,000 mg of nutrients, while the smaller single "0" can contain around 400-600 mg and the larger triple "000" can feature in the range of 1,000-1,200 mg.
These capsules should be filled with powdered nutrients. They are ideal for potent herbs or other ingredients with strong flavors and scents, since the caps cover the taste and smell. The amount that will fit in each cap will vary based on capsule size and the density of the powder. These caps are not designed for use with liquids. The capsules are easy to swallow and dissolve shortly after consumption.
