Powder Supplement Ingredients & Flavors

The type of powder supplement manufacturer that you want to work with will guide you in choosing the active ingredients. However, there are additional ingredients that may be necessary. These are some important points to consider.


In some cases, sweeteners may be necessary. However, you can also choose to not use any type of sweetener. Some active ingredients are naturally bitter, bland or metallic. Sweeteners can help offset those unfavorable tastes. These are the options that we offer for sweeteners:

  • Natural sweeteners
  • Artificial sweeteners
  • Combined sweeteners

The right choice depends on your preferences for marketing or your target market’s preferences. For example, if you think that an all-natural supplement will be more attractive to your target market, you may choose a natural sweetener.


Flavors are often used in combination with sweeteners. We have specific flavors, such as chocolate, vanilla and many others. If the powder that you choose does not have an unpleasant natural taste, you may opt to skip the flavors. When you prefer or need flavoring added, these are the choices:

  • Natural flavors
  • Artificial flavors
  • Combined flavors

As it is with the previous point, the decision is up to you and what you think your target market will want.


Colors make powders look more appealing. In many cases, they have a bland appearance in their natural form. You may choose a color to coordinate with a flavor. For example, imagine that you want a strawberry-flavored supplement. If the mixture is an unsightly color, it may not be as appealing to customers. They often expect a certain color with a flavor, such as pink with strawberry. However, the choice is entirely up to you if you want coloring or no coloring. These are the types of colors that we offer:

  • Natural colors
  • Artificial colors
  • Combined colors

Main Ingredients

These are some examples of popular active ingredients:

  • Whey protein
  • Plant protein
  • Collagen
  • Fiber
  • Vitamin and mineral blends
  • Greens powders

There are also powdered herbs and other nutritious ingredients that can be added to multi-ingredient supplements. For example, you may want to create a powder that is mixed with water or milk for a meal replacement for elderly people. You may choose some vitamins that support vision and joint health to add. As your dedicated powder manufacturer, we can help you select ingredients for your needs and preferences.

Powder Mixtures

We can create custom powder mixtures, and these are the main types to consider:

  • Cohesive mixtures have additives to ensure even distribution, which makes them ideal for synergism in blending.
  • Ordered mixtures are created through very precise processes that have specific orders for the steps.
  • Free-flowing mixtures are better for all-natural supplements, and they do not include additives that other mixtures have.

If you are not sure which type of mixture you need, we can discuss shelf life, blending and other issues with you.

Powder Manufacturing Process

As your dedicated powder supplement manufacturer, we do everything we can to make this process easier for you. Our teams and facilities can handle complex and large projects. These are the main steps.

Step 1: You Design Your Powder and Choose Packaging

Our extensive supply chain gives us access to nearly all types of packaging. We can help you find innovative container designs. Although packets and bottles are popular, there are other options. If you also want the container boxed, we can handle both tasks. You can also choose what you want for a label design. Once you have decided on what packaging you want, we verify your choices and start the manufacturing process.

Step 2: We Make Your Powder

During this process, these are the steps that take place:

  • Measuring
  • Blending
  • Testing
  • Container filling
  • Inspection

We have quality measures in place at every step to ensure that the potency of active ingredients is protected and that there is no contamination. We offer specific certification criteria that you may need, such as Certified Organic, TGA or several others. We can provide you with an estimated time for completion that is based on your individual needs.

Step 3: We Ship Your Powder

Once your order is complete and has passed our rigorous testing procedures, we ship it to you. Our team will reach out to you when this happens, and we provide you with tracking information. Rest assured that the ingredients in your shipment are considered in determining how to ship it to preserve the integrity of the substances.

  • Powders that are designed to taste good can be enjoyable to your buyers.
  • Powders are easy to absorb.
  • Powders are easy to take.

We just completed a very large Homeopathic tablet order that required involvement from 4 different facilities. There was nobody else in the country that was willing to help us that we called until we found superior. First shipment came last week and we couldn’t be happier or more impressed with the team. Thank you Justine, Phil, Stephenie you are the best!

I was choosing between two companies to create a formulation, and it came down to their level of service, expertise and confidence in their ability to execute. After speaking to Phil, their lead guy who knows all things supplements and is very easy to communicate with, was enthusiastic and helped to create a strategy to see my vision through. The last thing you want is a transactional relationship in this industry, so whether you’re a first timer or a veteran, these guys know how to add value no matter what level you’re at. Highly recommend Superior and their team to get the job done.
When they say “Superior” they aren’t kidding. Of over 100 companies on our NSF list that we called, and over 20 that we talked to, Superior was the ONLY one that consistently answered their phones, worked incredibly diligently to problem solve and R&D an incredibly complex patented proprietary product, and consistently was two or three steps ahead of us, the landscape and their competitors. Looking forward to a long relationship Superior!
We’ve been using Superior for over 5 years. We came to them because our last manufacturer stopped making the capsule size I needed. I looked everywhere for a replacement. Luckily, I found Superior. They quoted me a fair price and sourced a hard to find ingredient quickly. In the 5 years we’ve had them make our product, which is a custom formulation, they have never delivered late once. Quality control is very high and I get constant updates from Phil our point person while it is being manufactured. I cannot recommend them enough.
Our previous manufacturer was 3 months late on a production and barely spoke with us. We have run many runs with Superior and as with all manufacturing, there was an order that was a little late because of poor crop growth. Not only did they warn us ahead of time they showed us the list of suppliers they were calling day and night to try to find replacement material. Best company ever!
Jake, Justine and Phil are just a few of the team members we have had the pleasure of working with at Superior. As a marketing agency working in the supplement industry, we work with many suppliers on behalf of our clients. I especially appreciate Superior Supplements Manufacturing because of their dedication to customer relationships. They go to extreme measures to ensure quality ingredients, fair pricing and great turn around times. The staff is also extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this team.
