Nutra™, Natural Advantage Coatings

Colorcon understands the time pressures dietary and nutritional supplement manufacturers are under to get their product to market faster, which is why we have a network of facilities and technical experts offering customized services around the world.

Colorcon's cost-effective immediate- and enteric release film coating systems provide advantages that appeal to consumers.

Our film coatings -

  • Mask unpleasant tastes and odors
  • Improve the ability to swallow large tablets
  • Protect fragile cores 
  • Improve the shelf life of moisture or oxygen-sensitive tablets 

Colorcon has also been prepared to offer titanium dioxide (TiO2) free alternative formulations before the May 2021 announcement of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) banning the use of TiO2 as a food additive (E171). Our Nutrafinish® formulations are designed to address industry concerns and ensure consumer-friendly labeling. We also offer a range of specialized products and services, including core excipients and custom color-matching and quick access to samples. 

For companies looking for ways to make their product stand out from the competition, we offer BEST®, a unique tablet design service. This complementary service helps manufacturers distinguish their product by designing a one-of-a-kind tablet combining color, shape and size. The result is an image that perfectly complements your marketing initiatives.
