Our Solutions to Formulate The Right Nutrients Into Gels

Gels (or jelly sticks) are a relatively new dosage form for dietary supplements, already very popular with consumers. We offer multiple health ingredients suited for application with gels.

Gels are not only a relevant dosage form for athletes who need to ensure a sufficient supply of carbohydrates and nutrients, but also for people who want to consume dietary supplements in a convenient and modern way. It is very important to consumers that gels (or jelly sticks) have a good taste, pleasant consistency and superior fluidity.

Taking nutrients in the form of gels has multiple benefits. Gels are typically easy to swallow, making them the right choice for consumers who have difficulties swallowing tablets or capsules (dysphagia) – in particular children and elderly people. Since they can be ingested without water and are provided in a pocket-sized format, gels are also an ideal dosage form for people who are frequently on the move.

Our health ingredients meet quality requirements for gels, such as purity, concentration, homogeneity and stability.
