Manufacturing

 

Manufacturing a quality nutraceutical, functional food, or dietary supplement product starts with developing solid relationships with reputable suppliers, diligently assessing raw materials for risk, and testing to ensure composition and purity. 

At Protein Research, we store raw materials in a cGMP environment and in accordance to recommended storage conditions to maximize the freshness and integrity of every ingredient.  

Raw materials are segregated based on allergen, non-GMO, gluten free and Certified Organic status to maintain purity.

Learn about our rigorous process for developing quality nutraceutical and dietary supplement products:

Capsules 

Our high-speed capsule manufacturing equipment provides customers with many benefits through a common and efficient delivery system. 

Our state-of-the-art capsule filling lines use electronic photo counters that allow for maximum fill speed for highly scalable production. All capsules are run through polishers to make sure no dust is present on the finished product. They also are put through metal detectors to keep free of foreign materials. 

We offer veggie and gelatin capsules in a variety of sizes. Capsules are available in conventional and organic compliant (can be used in products labeled “made with organic ingredients”). 

 

 

Tablets 

Similar to capsule manufacturing, tablet manufacturing offers speed of production and buyer satisfaction by offering standard, chewable, and sublingual (lozenge) options. 

We’ve mastered the craft of tablet formulation using state-of-the-art tablet filling lines, which use electronic counters that allow for maximum fill speed for highly scalable production.  

Our tablet presses have pre-compression capabilities at five tons before being pressed at 10 tons. This allows us to achieve one hundred percent direct compression to maintain the integrity of your finished product. We offer several different tablet dimensions to fit your needs.

 

 

Powders and Powder Premixes 

Our facility contains numerous high capacity stainless-steel blenders that include double-ribbon, paddle, V-blenders, and fluidizers, all of which deliver homogeneous blends without breaking down particle size, ideal for various powder formulas, such as the best protein powders, dietary supplements, nutraceuticals, red and green superfood powders, and more.  

Our blenders are ideal for powder premixes, including premixes for fortified beverages: vitamin blends for meal replacement shakes, vegetarian protein powder shakes, whey protein powder shakes, smoothie premixes, energy drinks, and superfood juice premixes. We also specialize in premixes for all types of bars, gummies, and chews. 

 

 

Effervescents 

Effervescence is the escape of gas from an aqueous solution creating a  foaming or fizzing  as a result from that release. The benefits of effervescents are abundant. They’re bioavailable, which means they can easily enter the bloodstream, they’re easy to digest.

They allow for large doses of vitamin C, vitamin B-12 and other multivitamins and minerals to be taken in just one serving, and are optimal for buyers who have issues swallowing conventional capsules or tablets. 

Protein Research specializes in effervescent powder formulations that are currently extremely hot in today’s market.

All of our stick pack machines are auger-servo equipment driven to get the most accurate weights possible. Fill weights for stick packs range from 2 grams  to 20 grams. Tear notches are an option for this form, fill, and seal line. We utilize pressure vacuums to test for proper sealing of sachets, stick packs and gusseted bags.
