The "poison capsule" that occurred in April last year made the public panic about all the medicines (food) of capsule preparations. How to eliminate the safety hazards and ensure the safety of capsule medicines (food) has become an urgent issue to be considered.

Recently, Professor Feng Guoping, former deputy director of the Drug Registration Department of the State Food and Drug Administration and vice president of the China Pharmaceutical Packaging Association, said that it is difficult to completely cure the heavy metal overhang caused by artificial gelatin capsules or artificial pollution.

The path of anthropogenic pollution may be small, so the use of plant capsules instead of animal capsules is the fundamental way to deal with capsule pollution, but the reality is that the cost of plant capsules is slightly higher.

Following the continuous emergence of infectious diseases of animal origins around the world, the international community is increasingly concerned about the safety of animal products. Plant capsules have outstanding advantages over animal gelatin capsules in terms of applicability, safety, stability and environmental protection.

A few years ago, vegetarian capsules have been presented to date, and the proportion of selected plant capsules for medicines and health products in the prosperous countries is increasing. The United States also requires that the market share of plant capsules reach more than 80% within a few years.
