Solara is the creator of the first full line of “fast-melting” tablets for the nutraceutical market, EZ Melts®.
This same technology is used in many of our customers’ products, providing them a competitive advantage in the market that is often maintained for years.
Our “fast-melt” technology is sugar-free, dairy-free, Non-GMO, and gluten-free. Our great-tasting formulas also use only natural flavors and sweeteners, unless requested otherwise.
These tablets dissolve easily in the mouth without chewing or water and are formulated for great taste – perfect for children, the elderly, and anyone who dislikes swallowing conventional tablets or pills. Most formulations dissolve in 30-90 seconds.
Many active ingredients are a fit for the technology, including vitamins, minerals, probiotics, botanicals, and specialized ingredients such as the NAD+ precursors nicotinamide riboside, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, and nicotinamide mononucleotide .
1. What amount of active ingredients can you get into one tablet?
This varies greatly depending on the ingredient. In general, the smaller the dose, the better the disintegration and taste profile.
For an ingredient with a neutral taste, a small dose would be less than about 100 mg and a large dose may be up to 250-350mg per tablet.
Ingredients with undesirable taste have a tendency to impact the product performance, but we are often able to overcome these challenges.
2. Are fast-melts more expensive?
They are usually more expensive when compared with an equivalent capsule or conventional tablet formula since our technology uses high-performing premium ingredients that drive the cost up.
However, in the case of very unique and expensive active ingredients, the price can be driven by the active ingredient, making the difference between a fast melt and encapsulated product negligible.
3. How do they taste?
This depends on the profile of the active ingredients.
Please visit www.ezmelts.net for a representative sample of ingredients that perform well with the technology.
We have also created more sophisticated products for customers, ranging from blends to single-ingredient formulas using rare and expensive active ingredients.
4. Can I “private label” your EZ Melts or other lines?
In general, the fast-melt technology is available for custom-based projects. We evaluate private label projects for EZ Melts, on a case-by-case basis and with select criteria.
