Empty vegetarian capsules (hard cellulose capsule shells) are the ideal way to make your own supplements. They can be used to fill powders, fine powdered herbs and granulated ingredients.
These empty vegetarian capsules are pharmaceutical grade and 100% gelatin free. As stated in the name, they are suitable for vegetarians and are supplied in an easy to use tamper evident re-sealable stand up pouch.
Dimensions of a size 0 (zero) capsule
Outer diameter: 7.7mm; locked length: 21.7mm.
How much powder can go into a size 0 capsule?
This really depends on the density of the powder being used. For instance, granulated powders like minerals have a higher density and can achieve a higher fill weight, possibly up to 700mg. On the other end of the scale, powders that are light and fluffy or very finely chopped herbs will have a far lower density and only 300mg would be possible.
Can the vegetarian capsules be used for liquids?
These empty vegetarian capsules have not been designed or recommended to be used with liquids/oils. Some people have used the capsules filled with oil. Due to the high disintegration time the capsule would very quickly break down.
What are vegetarian capsules made from?
Our high quality empty vegetarian hard cellulose capsule shells are made from hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose (HPMC). This high quality material is derived from natural pine wood fibre.
