2014-01-23 15:43:50 - ZOFT gums and confections are now manufactured in chewable tablets delivering supplements and nutrients.
This week ZOFT Gum Company, a major manufacturer of functional gums that deliver health and medical benefits, announced their new capability of producing tableted products including tableted chewing gum, lozenges (fast melt or slow dissolve), chewable tablets, pressed confectionery candy and mints. These new products are made with a direct compression process.
“We specialize in developing and contract manufacturing products that provide faster absorption of active ingredients in chewing gum and lozenge dosage forms. Using tableted products as a delivery system, the actives are absorbed through the mucous membrane lining inside the mouth. This causes faster results than products using conventional oral absorption in capsule or liquid dosage said Heather Collins, ZOFT Media Representative.
ZOFT Gum Company can custom formulate a product
and contract manufacture and package it or private label one of their already formulated products. The firm manufactures products to a customer's specifications in a Kosher certified, allergen-free and quality-driven GMP compliant manufacturing environment.
Gum and confectioneries are seen as an excellent delivery technology for supplements and active ingredients. They allow for fast absorption and do not require liquid for swallowing. Additionally the delivery method does not require high heat manufacturing that can lessen the effectiveness of active ingredients. Medical experts recognize functional gums and confectioneries as an often better way to get patients to take their doses regularly. They are also more attractive to the elderly and children who many have difficulty swallowing conventional pills.
ZOFT's dietary supplements incorporate a wide range of ingredients including actives, vitamins, minerals, herbals, botanicals, amino acids and more. “We make functional gum, functional foods and medicated confectionery products using sugar or sugar-free ingredients. We can customize size, shape, flavor, color, ingredients etc.," Collins said.
ZOFT Gum Company manufacturing provides fast turnaround on custom formulations and specializes in developing challenging formulations. “Imagine what you want and let us make it a reality. We take your product idea from concept to final production Collins said.
