    I ordered a vitamin online I want to put into an acid resistant capsule, but oddly enough I was having trouble finding enteric coated pills (apparently they are sealed after the stuff is put inside them). Then I started reading about HPMC capsules and got confused.

    Anyone have a good link for stomach acid resistant capsules and/or can explain if HPMC capsules are as good, worse, or better than enteric coated capsules?

    Thanks for any replies,

    -Charles

    Hi Charles, some of us have been discussing enteric coated capsules. I looked at this source but evidently, capsules that are coated after they are filled, are more apt to survive the stomach and open in the small intestines--which is what some of us need. When you say that you like them so far, do you have any sense of where, in the intestinal tract, they are releasing?

    Thanks.
