Avicel® and Endurance®

Consumer-friendly tablet binders


For decades, cellulose-based Avicel® and Endurance® binders have been used to manufacture dietary supplements that deliver nutritional ingredients in a consumer-friendly format like small-sized tablets, capsules, chewables and orally disintegrating tablets (ODTs). With the largest and broadest portfolio of premium cellulose-based binders, manufacturers around the world turn to Avicel® to create nutraceuticals with less dust formation and improved mouthfeel to appeal to the widest possible consumer base. Additionally, Endurance® binders provide a pleasant consumer experience with superior mouthfeel, taste and texture attributes.

DuPont extracts Avicel® and Endurance® from naturally derived materials like wood pulp, making them ideal ingredients for crafting sustainable products. We source our raw, renewable materials directly from environmentally conscious suppliers, all of which are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification or both.
