As more people discover the benefits of boosting or maintaining healthy gut flora, probiotics are becoming increasingly popular. If you are thinking of creating your own probiotic supplement and lack the manufacturing capabilities, we can handle the many complexities of the process for you. Probiotic supplements are also good additions to expand your product line.
Choosing Your Probiotic Ingredients
There are many different forms of probiotics on the market. Some have only one or two strains of live microorganisms. Others may have 10 or more. These are some examples of ingredients that are in many probiotic supplements:
- L. acidophilus
- L. rhamnosus
- L. bulgaricus
- L. reuteri
- B. lactis
- B. breve
We can provide you with access to many other beneficial ingredients to create a powerful probiotic supplement. The combination of ingredients and dose depend on who you want to target. For example, someone with a chronic bowel condition may be instructed by a gastroenterologist to take a 50 billion CFU comprehensive probiotic supplement. However, someone who simply wants to maintain gut health may take 10 billion CFU daily of a supplement with fewer strains.
How We Create Probiotic Supplements
Once you decide to work with us for your private label supplements, design, label and package your probiotics, there are several steps that happen. This is what you can expect during the process.
Step 1: You Create the Ideas
You decide how you want your labels and packaging to look. If you need help with the labels, we can advise you about important wording to include on the probiotic containers. Also, you decide on the ingredients and amounts of ingredients that you want in each supplement. You choose the delivery form as well. People often choose these forms for probiotics:
- Liquids or drinks
If the total dose for the ingredients that you choose will not fit into one tablet or capsule, you may need to add instructions on the label to take two supplements to get the intended dose. Once we verify the packaging and ingredients with you, we can start the manufacturing phase.
Step 2: We Make the Probiotics
During this phase, these are the main steps that take place:
- Ingredient measuring and verification.
- Capsule, tablet or other delivery form preparation.
- Processing or filling.
- Finishing or sealing processes.
- Inspection and testing.
- Packaging and labeling.
The exact process for creation depends on the delivery form that you choose. For example, there are slightly different processes for making tablets and capsules. There are also separate processes for creating refrigerated probiotics, and special care must be taken to preserve the live microorganisms.
We advise you about all additional ingredients that need to be added to supplements. Since many people who purchase probiotics often have food sensitivities or gut discomfort, we realize that you may request specific ingredient restrictions. Many people request supplements that do not contain gluten, soy, sugar, wheat or other trace substances for probiotic users. We will be happy to discuss these issues with you.
Once the probiotics are made, they are inspected for visible issues. They also go through rigorous testing to ensure top quality. If you want your probiotics manufactured under special certifications, such as TGA or Kosher, we can accommodate your requests. We offer access to many respected manufacturing certification choices. Once we are satisfied that your probiotics are top-quality supplements, we package them. If you choose containers and outer packaging, we can handle both tasks. For example, some people have their probiotics put into plastic bottles and then boxed.
Step 3: You Receive Your Probiotics
We carefully package your shipment and send it through a reputable carrier. If you have a probiotic that requires refrigeration, we are careful to ship it to you in a way that it maintains the right temperature. Also, we offer tracking information.
Popular Types of Probiotic Packaging
How you package the probiotic depends on the type that you choose. For example, you may choose a different style and material for a probiotic drink than you would for capsule manufacturing. These are some common packaging choices:
- Glass jars
- Glass bottles
- Plastic bottles
- Blister packs
- Squeeze packs
Concerns With Probiotic Manufacturing
One common concern that is specific to probiotics is preservation of live microorganism strains. Rest assured that we only provide you with manufacturing teams that understand the complexities of those microorganisms and know how to preserve as many of them as possible during the manufacturing process. This is essential for accuracy in your dosing claims, and we understand how important that is to your customers. These are some other concerns that people often share:

- Capacity of manufacturing facilities.
