The term “nutraceutical” is a combination of the words “nutrient” and “pharmaceutical.” Nutraceuticals are products derived from food sources that offer basic nutritional value along with the additional health benefits of a drug. Acme-Hardesty offers a broad selection of oleochemicals that can serve as safe, effective additives for nutraceutical products. Examples include:
Magnesium stearate is the product of a reaction between magnesium sulfate and sodium stearate. Magnesium stearate’s strong anti-adherent properties enable it to serve as an excipient and mold release agent for tableting in nutraceutical products. We offer magnesium stearate in kosher, NF, powder and polymer grade form and packaged in convenient bags.
Glycerine, also known as glycerin or glycerol, is a versatile, safe oleochemical used in the manufacturing of many nutraceuticals and other food, pharmaceutical and personal care products. Acme-Hardesty offers vegetable-based glycerine featuring a minimum purity of 99.7% that meets FDA guidelines for listing as a natural product.
In terms of nutraceuticals manufacturing, our glycerine product can serve as an excipient in gel caps. You can purchase glycerine 99.7% in various types of packaging including drums, liquid bulk, five-gallon pails and several others.
Stearic Acid 50 NF Powder
Stearic acid is a saturated fatty acid derived from animal and vegetable fat. We offer a vegetable-based stearic acid product in a 50 NF powder formula ideally suited for various nutraceutical/pharmaceutical applications. Examples include as a carrier, excipient, emulsifying agent, mold release agent and capsule and tablet lubricant. We package and ship stearic acid 50 NF powder in cartons with a shelf life of two years from the date of manufacture when stored in compliance with MSDS guidelines.
