What Is the Standard Capsule Size?

Before the new formulation begins, the capsule that is the most suitable size needs to be selected when packaging the powder. It is quite right to consider these points before starting capsule production.  If handled properly, this will save time and money in the long run.

The desired dose

 You need to decide how many doses you want to take in each capsule, such as 1000 mg vitamin C

Mix volume

The volume of the mixture will depend on the volume density of the powder that makes up the mixture. You need to know the volume density of your mixture so you can calculate how many active ingredients end up in each capsule.

Easy to swallow

When selecting capsules for children or animals that may not be able to swallow larger capsules. Sizes 00 and 0 are the most commonly used capsules in manufacturing, and they are large enough to be mixed in large quantities and are easy to swallow by humans.
There are eight standard-sized capsules numbered: 000, 00, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Most capsule fillers are made into machines that are compatible with these standard sizes.
