Liquid dietary supplements are a convenient alternative for consumers who have difficulties swallowing tablets or capsules (dysphagia). This mainly concerns children and elderly people. Therefore, it is very important that these liquids have a pleasant taste or can be added to drinks such as juices or solid food such as cereals. Moreover, consumers with sensitive or irritable digestive systems use liquids as an alternative to solid dosage forms, which means they should be gastro-resistant.
Liquid dietary supplements have various advantages compared to solid ones. For instance, they offer a lot of flexibility in dosing. Additionally, they do not remain in the digestive system as long as solid product formats due to easier absorption. This makes them the ideal application format for nutrients that need to be quickly absorbed by the body.
