Dosage forms

The dosage forms include the following:  

  • Powder blends for infant formula: These probiotic powder blends are produced in adherence with the highest quality standards and can be easily incorporated into recipes for infant formula. 

  • Oil drops: Probiotic oil drops are ideal for delivering probiotics to infants. The oil drops are precisely dosed using the built-in dropper and can be stored at room temperature. Our oil drops are designed for easy and convenient use and only require a bit of shaking before use. Oil drops feature a clean label and are packaged in amber glass bottles to protect delicate strains from light. 

  • Powder: Probiotic powder is a water-soluble dosage form that can be easily mixed into a favorite food or beverage for direct consumption. Powders are ideal for consumers of all ages and can be especially beneficial for those who may have trouble swallowing pills.  

  • Capsules: Vegetable-based capsules of probiotics are available in multiple sizes including 00, 0, 1 and 3. We also offer options for delayed-release capsules, as well as clear, colored and titanium oxide-free options. Capsules are meant to be an easy-to-swallow dosage form that maximizes probiotic survivability throughout the stomach. 

  • Chewable tablets: Chewable tablets are available in a variety of flavors for children and adults. Standard tablets are round, but they can be created in a number of different sizes and forms for producers seeking something different.  

  • Lozenges: We also offer a lozenge form for products focused on oral health. Lozenges provide a convenient way for consumers to take their daily probiotics on the go. 

  • DryCap shots: DryCap shots offer a serving each of liquid and probiotics, where each is stored separately in a bottle and aluminum blister packaging. This separation preserves the benefits of the probiotics until just before consumer is ready to take them, at which point the two ingredients can be combined, briefly shaken and then consumed.
