Vitamins are organic compounds that are necessary in reasonable amounts in animal and human diets for sustainability and good health.

A hitch in any production stage may wreak havoc on users’ health and create huge damage to the reputation of the manufacturer. This illustrates that every manufacturing company that engages in the production of vitamins should be able to produce according to the required standards, quality ingredients, well-structured procedural steps, and look beyond how Vitamins work only.

Companies like NutriSport Pharmacal over the years has been into research, formulation, pre-formulation, quality raw materials, and ingredients required in manufacturing effective Vitamins for users. The information below shows the various stages of processes used when manufacturing vitamins.

How Vitamins Are Made

Here, the manufacturer source for unprocessed vitamins and other ingredients from a trusted distributor stating the types of vitamins and how powerful they are with certification of analysis.

Regardless of the labeled analysis description, the manufacturing companies still subject these raw materials and ingredients to further testing in their laboratory or make use of an independent laboratory to ascertain the potency and possible danger of the ingredients or materials.

  1. Pre-Blending

    Most times, the form of the raw vitamins is powdery, which doesn’t require preliminary processing; however, there may be a need to take them through a blending process if they are not well granulated. This is done through mill and ground.

    Filler ingredients like microcrystalline cellulose or maltodextrin are also used to pre-blend some vitamins because it helps get a more even granule which helps get a simplified supplementary process.

  2. Wet Granulation

    For tabletted vitamins, the size of the particle should be considered if you want the raw materials to run well on the tablet-making machine. Sometimes, there may not be a need to run these materials on the tablet-market machine if they are well granulated to the appropriate tablet size by the distributor.

    However, some processes may call for a wet granulation where a variety of cellulose particles is now mixed with the fine vitamin powder and after which the drying process comes in, using a dryer, then, mill the (large particle)dried materials to the desired size.

  3. Weighing and Mixing

    Once the vitamin ingredients are set, it is then moved to the weighing station to ascertain their weight.

    Each ingredient in the batch has a required weight and can be found on the batch record. After weighing, all the ingredients are transferred into the mixer. Mixing takes up to 15 to 30 minutes after which samples from different sides of the mixer are taken and examined in the laboratory.

    It is required that all the ingredients are distributed in the same proportion to help come out with accurate and conclusive results. The vitamin formula is then taken for an encapsulating or tablet-making machine.

    Other processing steps include:

    – Encapsulating machine
    – Polishing and inspection
    – Tableting
    – Coating
    – Packaging
    – Quality Control
