Redrose is delighted to be able to produce both vegan and vegetarian supplements within our manufacturing facility.

Thanks to our certification in vegan and vegetarian food production, we can support the ever-growing community of end-users who make up nearly 14% of the global population (Figures correct as of 2021) and can display the recognisable ‘Vegan Product’ mark across our labeling.

We support hydroxypropyl methylcellulose HPMC capsules which are a vegan-friendly alternative to gelatin capsules and use plant-based ingredients like Vegan Vitamin D3 and omega supplements derived from Algae. 

These supplements are easily made and can ensure you cater to the continually growing vegan and vegetarian market.

Popular Supplements for Vegan and Vegetarian Consumers

Many vegan and vegetarians also use health supplements to gain further nutrients from their diets that they feel may be missing by going plant-based. 

Vitamin B-12 is an increasingly popular supplement to take when on a vegan diet. It helps with the important bodily processes and is integral to the nervous system. 

Long chain Omega-3 supplements are also popular and include eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). This helps with brain development and reduces inflammation. The most well-known sources of omega-3 fatty acids are fish oil but for vegans and vegetarians, omega-3 fatty acids are readily available in plant sources like walnuts, flaxseeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, edamame, seaweed, and algae.

Studies have shown that many vegans may not get enough Calcium in their diet which is important for bone and teeth health. They can receive this from other forms of food such as watercress, kale and broccoli however many experts also encourage a calcium supplement to be taken along with a healthy plant-based diet.
