A custom formulation is defined as a product made exclusively for your company to your exact specifications. Such formulas might range in complexity from a single ingredient to several different components. This process might involve the modification of an existing product or the development of a completely new formulation “from scratch”. SDC Nutrition currently provides several hundred custom formulations for our established customers and can assist you in every phase of product development including packaging.
One of the most common obstacles encountered when pursuing custom formulating is the minimum order required. Such minimums can often exceed 250,000 capsules or several thousand pounds of powder for each and every order!
SDC Nutrition requires only the bare minimum of any custom formulation be produced while maintaining extremely competitive pricing. Depending upon the type of product, from whey protein, pre workout powders and even plant based proteins, our minimums are manageable.
Bottles (round packers) are available in a number of sizes and colors in both HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene) and PET (Polyethylene terephthalate).
HDPE is our basic bottle offered in a white matt finish and is available in the widest size range from 100CC to 3000CC. Most of our stock products and custom formulations are quoted in white HDPE unless otherwise specified.
PET plastic has the look of glass and can make a significant difference in the visual impact of your product line. More expensive than HDPE, PET can add an average of .10 to .25 per bottle, but can make a significant difference in the visual impact of your sports nutrition product line. Our stock inventory of PET is more limited, but we do offer the most commonly used sizes in several colors.
Single-serving packets are available for many of our protein and pre workout powder formulations and are offered in serving sizes of 10 grams up to 70 grams. These packets are made of a foil / plastic material and offer a much more effective moisture barrier than conventional packaging. The individual packets may be private labeled with adhesive labels in small quantities and are available in pre-printed form for larger custom manufacture orders.
SDC Nutrition is now beginning to offer single-serving daily packets of capsules, providing a wide range of packets that cover multi-vitamins / minerals, sports nutrition, joint health, cholesterol and much more, all of which may be private labeled individually. 3” x 3” packets and 4 x 6 packets are available. Custom printed packets are available in larger quantities.
Single-serving packets provide a level of convenience, effectiveness and economy not available when a person is forced to buy numerous bottles of different healthy products. The packets offer convenient dosing and present the perfect means of taking your dietary supplements with you on trips to stay on track for a healthy lifestyle.
Create your own unique custom combination of capsules / powders with our assistance using our stock inventory of more than 200 different formulations.
Most of our dietary supplement formulas may be purchased in bulk form which may offer substantial savings when compared to purchasing our standard sizes. Capsules may be ordered in increments of 1,000 each or more, with optimum savings at approximately 10,000 each. Supplement powders may be purchased in 25 lb or 50 lb options depending on the formula. Please ask us for more information on this packaging option.
