Tablets & Softgels

Today, the nutritional market offers a wide range of formats to aid consumers in obtaining the appropriate level of nutrients. Tablets and softgels remain at the forefront of popular delivery forms that have been consumed for many generations.  Customers old and young consume tablets and softgels as convenient and quick solutions to enhance daily nutrient intake.  Most consumers taking these supplements likely do not realize both the processing and absorption challenges faced by manufacturers.  ABITEC provides solutions for both improving manufacturing inefficiencies and enhancing absorption.
