Innovation in Product Application: Pullulan product for usage in Vegetative Capsules

The triumph of a product doesn’t just hinge upon how ‘natural’ it is. An emphasis on its performance is another reason behind the natural category’s strong performance. Proving the efficacy coexists with ‘naturals’ and future will be decided by the consumers as the ingredients’ science continue to deliver. That’s where we introduce the ‘naturally better’ biopolymer for food, cosmetic/ personal care and the pharma industries….. Pullulan. A biopolymer with a multitude of demonstrated practical applications, Pullulan is a natural polysaccharide excreted by the Marine Black Yeast: Aureobasidium pullulans.


One of the unique applications of Pullulan which has been championed by KOP scientists is it’s usage in vegetative capsules.

Pullulan is a completely vegetative alternative to various synthetic and non-vegetative capsules. Pullulan can be formed into capsules and undoubtedly the only choice if the thrust is towards 100%natural and vegetarian. It overrides both gelatine and HPMC, the two major and well-known alternatives in the capsule segment. Pullulan is the vegetarian alternative to gelatin which is of animal origin. It is not produced by chemical modification, and is therefore 100% natural, unlike HPMC.

The following are salient features which have been achieved by Kumar scientist to give the best alternative to gelatine capsules.

1. Pullulan can be formed into capsules and is an excellent oxygen barrier property ensure that the shelf life of products is optimized.

2. Its non-animal origin ensures there are no safety concerns with consumers and its suitability for all consumer groups. 

3. Its distinct advantage over gelatin capsules is that almost impermeable to oxygen. Thus, it is suitable for encapsulating even oxidation-sensitive ingredients, while there is less need for anti-oxidants. 

4. 250 times better against oxidation than HPMC capsules

5. 9 times better than gelatin capsules

6. Non-hygroscopic in nature therefore significantly reduced cross-linking with encapsulated substances 

7. GRAS status; both Halal & Kosher certified.
