Why we use it in our soft gel capsule manufacturing: Sunflower oil is commonly used in soft gel capsule manufacturing due to its excellent properties that make it an ideal carrier for encapsulated substances. The high content of unsaturated fatty acids in sunflower oil, particularly linoleic acid, enhances the bioavailability of fat-soluble compounds. This makes it an efficient vehicle for delivering vitamins, minerals, and other nutritional supplements. Additionally, sunflower oil is stable and resistant to oxidation, providing a longer shelf life for the soft gel capsules and preserving the integrity of the encapsulated ingredients. Its mild flavor and low odor make it suitable for masking any potential taste or smell of the enclosed substances, contributing to a more palatable and consumer-friendly product. Overall, the unique combination of stability,bio availability, and sensory attributes makes sunflower oil a preferred choice in the production of soft gel capsules.
