Lefancaps® has always been devoted to researching and developing the global leading HPMC capsules and Pullulan capsules, chooses the raw materials with the highest quality, and specializes more on the manufacture and sales of HPMC capsules and Pullulan capsules. Moreover, in the option of raw materials, Lefancaps® insists on controlling pesticide residues and genetically modified risk.

On September 25-26, 2019, Vitafoods Asia was held by Informa PLC at Sands Expo & Convention Center, Marina bay Sands, Singapore. This expo is committed to reshaping the food industry for optimal health through science and innovation. At this expo, Lefancaps®, together with other enterprises, learned more about the nutraceutical industry in all aspects from a global and regional perspective and is committed to provide the best products and solutions for dietary supplements.  

Regarding capsule appearance, based on our strict internal quality system, Lefancaps® uses an intelligent visual inspection system to perfectly control the appearance of each capsule. Through fully 100% inspection on each capsule for 360°, without any blind angel, appearance defect will hardly be found at Lefancaps®’s capsules.

Lefancaps® HPMC capsules, sourced from natural Hydroxy Propyl Methyl Cellulose, are suitable for vegan and vegetarians. It is of low moisture and anti-brittle, ≥99.5% excellent filling rate. Meanwhile, it can precisely control weight deviation, like ±1mg, ±2mg, ±3mg and±4mg and even able to provide customized weight for customers. Without any specific requirements, same filling machines and moulds can be used for H-caps® as Gelatin-caps®.

According to different formulations and processes, H-caps ® can be divided into 1st generation, 2nd generation and 3rd generation; to be more specific, the 1st generation H-caps®  uses carrageenan as the gelata, the 2nd generation H-caps® uses gellan gum as the gelata, while the 3rd generation H-caps ® is free from gelata and takes the advantage of HPMC’s thermal gels function to prepare and produce. Due to different formulations, in dissolution test the products produced will also have different performance. The test data is as follows:

Medicine: Ranitidine Hydrochloride

Capsule size: #0

Test method:rotating basket method, 100rpm/min, sampling at 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 45, 60min.

Dissolution curve:


The dissolution speed of the 3rd generation H-caps® is very close to that of gelatin empty capsules. When in the acid medium, the 1st generation H-caps® has a better dissolution speed, while the 2nd generation has a lower speed; therefore, users can choose the appropriate product according to the release requirements of ingredients.

Our P-caps®  is prepared by using Pullulan as the main material and suitable excipients. Pullulan, fermented by microorganisms, is selected as a raw material for Pullulan empty capsules to control pesticide residues and genetically modified risks, which can meet the special needs like vegetarian and religious needs.
