After reading this series, you will be able to navigate through the noise comparisons between gelatin hard capsules and HPMC alternatives. Over the past few years there has been a growing trend of consumers demanding non-animal derived varieties and that consumers should avoid animal-derived products because plant-based products are a more natural alternative, so what is actual perception vs. reality?

Our experts will explain why the gelatin market remains both dominant and buoyant by answering questions about naturalness, sustainability, and health in gelatin and HPMC alternatives.  You will go beyond just the science of hard capsules, with insight information on trending consumer preferences, the manufacturing processes, and production cost.
