Gummy vitamins in palm of hand offer an improved mouthfeel.

Improved Mouthfeel

Ensuring end user compliance from the first dose

 
 
 

The supplement industry is seeing increased demand for innovative formats that eliminate the traditional tablet experience while providing a positive mouthfeel with every dose. Formats like gummies, orally disintegrating tablets and chewable tablets are becoming increasingly popular for their on-the-go appeal, with adults accounting for 80% of the gummy market alone.

To meet this increasing demand and ensure that consumers’ evolving needs for mouthfeel, taste and convenience are addressed, manufacturers and brand owners are seeking ways to turn ingredients found in nature into convenient supplement products. Unfortunately, some nutritional ingredients bring unpleasant textures, making them difficult to incorporate into smooth formulations.

Many supplement manufacturers turn to the common industry practice of adding sugar to overcompensate for unpleasant texture, or simply steer away from certain ingredients that are hard to compact. We approach it differently, working alongside our customers to individually formulate each product to create reduced sugar options and provide easily compactible tablets without jeopardizing texture and mouthfeel.

Our team of global experts is committed to creating a positive consumer experience every time. Whether that means creating a plant-based gummy, formulating less gritty tablets or developing tasty chewables, we are here to help. With our broad portfolio of solutions, we are your flexible dietary supplement partner, improving the mouthfeel of your products no matter your delivery form.
