Polymer science and engineering have opened a new era of functional development, which offers the potential for selecting the right capsule for different APIs.  Capsugel® Vcaps® Plus capsules represent a unique and valuable contribution—they dissolve quickly and predictably at different pH levels and are independent of cations or other food components. Under these conditions, they perform like gelatin. They also offer additional advantages, particularly a lower moisture content, which makes them suitable for hygroscopic and moisture-sensitive drugs and manufacturing processes. Because of the low moisture sensitivity, you have a range of storage options with less chance for brittleness or breakage.
