Manufacturers used to use animal-derived gelatin to make capsules, but with the exponential growth in demand for vegan, clean label and so on, the last three years has seen a surge in interest in plant-based soft capsules. The global softgel market is expected to reach $316 billion by 2025. And, there is an urgent need to introduce new technologies in plant-based softgels if brand owners want to leverage softgels to grow the trend in a fast-growing market. He believes that N-VGEL and V-Chew are the best choice of innovative technology for chewable plant-based softgels today.
It is reported that the N-VGEL and V-Chew vegetable soft capsules starch technologies comes from Erkang Pharmaceutical, a Chinese listed pharmaceutical company.
Erkang Pharmaceutical is a global pioneer in plant-based starches. Through close collaboration with domestic and international experts, Erkang has invested approximately $150 million in R&D and nearly $450 million in industrialization to develop StarchGel®, a starch for vegetable softgels.
As demand for “taste“, “color and shape”, and “portability and easy to swallow” growing, Erkang further developed “N-VGEL”and “V-Chew” (vegetable starch for chewable soft capsuless). And now they has close cooperation with manufacturers in North America, Europe, Southeast Asia and other countries.

In contrast to traditional gelatin capsules, N-VGEL and V-Chew are of vegetable origin, heat-resistant and stable in quality. Compared to Erkang‘s first generation vegetable gelatin starch, N-VGEL and V-Chew can be customized with a variety of color shapes, gelatin flavors, and brilliant taste. Also, it is possible to use the manufacturer’s existing starch gum machines and facilities directly .
Established in 2004, Halamix Thailand is a supplier of nutritional ingredients, with gelatin as the main product. Through the in-depth understanding with Erkang, they highly recognized the quality of Erkang‘s plant gelatin products. At the summit, the head of Halamix said, “N-VGEL and V-Chew, chewable plant-based soft capsules can help soft capsules product manufacturers improve their products to the new level.”
Collaboration with multiple manufacturers around the world proves that Erkang N-VGEL and V-Chew may now be the best choice for soft capsuless that meet clean label, non-GMO, vegan and flavor needs.
