Variety of chewable soft gels


Soft Chews


Plant-based, easy-to-swallow alternatives to gummy supplements


Imagine waking up and looking forward to your dietary supplement regime – chocolate calcium chews, citrus immune health boosters and berry flavored biotin. Consumers today are looking for a melt-in-your-mouth, delicious tasting experience that feels like they’re indulging in a treat, rather than their morning supplements. These types of nutraceuticals not only taste mask the bitter nutritional ingredients, they do so while delivering a flavorful burst upon chewing. Soft chew dietary supplements check all these boxes, plus they are easy-to-swallow, require no water to take and, when sourced from the right manufacturer, can be created with natural, non-GMO and vegetarian ingredients.

When formulating supplements in this dosage form, soft chew supplement manufacturers often struggle with maintaining the structural integrity of the product and establishing soft burst functionality. And with the limited vegetarian technologies available for making high-quality soft chews, manufacturers often default to animal-based gelatin. With a trusted manufacturing partner, plant-based supplement ingredients can be easily incorporated into chewable soft capsules to present a unique alternative to traditional soft capsules and offer a consumer experience like a gummy application. Thus, we can say that soft chews made with our plant-based ingredients combine the best of traditional soft capsules and gummies, offering consumers a unique product of desire.

At DuPont, we understand the nuances associated with switching from gelatin to plant-based ingredients and our technical experts will be there to support you every step of the way. By providing guidance on the technology and equipment needs to switch operations to gelatin alternatives, we can ensure your products stand out on the shelves and expand your audience reach to users who follow vegan, vegetarian, halal and kosher diets. Our broad product portfolio and global team of experts will determine the best ingredients for your individual formulation to create a structurally robust, great tasting and non-animal based soft chew. Consider us your partner for manufacturing superior soft chews.
