Empty Gelatin Capsules (Size 1)


$12.95 $14.95

"Size 1" holds approximately 300-600 mg

  • Size 1 gelatin capsules are a medium sized capsule that are easy to swallow, but still have a decent capacity.
  • They close easily, snap tight and have the lowest incidence of dents of all the other gelatin capsules available on the market today.
  • All of our empty capsules are BSE Free, Kosher and Halal Certified, Preservative Free, Gluten Free and Allergen Free.
  • They are manufactured in India, where the cattle are raised under strict regulations to produce high quality gelatin.
  • Our size 1 gelatin capsules are completely tasteless, odorless and colorless, making them perfect for your custom herbal supplements.

Capsule sizes range from size 4 (which is the smallest), all the way up to size 000 (largest).

The amount of powder that you can fit inside each empty size 1 gelatin capsule varies depending on the density of the powder, which is why you will see a weight range that each capsule can hold.

Dense powders such as Bentonite Clay and Beet Root Powder will fall at the higher end of the range, whereas light powders such as Ginkgo Biloba and Ceylon Cinnamon will fall toward the lower end.

Here is a breakdown of the approximate volume each capsule can hold:

  • Size 000 – 800-1600 mg
  • Size 00 – 600-1100 mg
  • Size 0 – 400-800 mg
  • Size 1 – 300-600 mg
  • Size 2 – 200-400 mg
  • Size 3 – 150-300 mg
  • Size 4 – 120-240 mg

I don't have alot of experience with using empty capsules. From my experience with these ones they are really easy to fill and close, no flavor which I was worried being that they're gelatin. So far so good. I've used over a quarter of the caps i bought and havent had an issue with one yet. They shipped really quick also. Overall satisfied.

This is the second time I've bought bags of capsules from Herb Affair and both times the capsules was shipped out within one business day and I received a very good product for a very reasonable price. So I would recommend this company to anyone that's interested in these products.

The quality of this product

The quality of this product is outstanding. I've always used the "cap-m-quik" system to fill 50 capsules each time. Surprising just how easy it is to use.
