They were developed as a potential substitute for soft gelatin capsules [41]. Gelatin has been used for decades for capsules preparation because of its physicochemical properties. One of the drawbacks of gelatin for hydrophilic lipid-based formulations is the high content of water of the matrix (up to 35%), which migrates to the active formulation, leading the drug to crystallization and changing its absorption [42]. Among other technical drawbacks, gelatin is obtained from animals, and there is a great interest in an alternative material based on vegetal sources due to commercial reasons (vegetarians diets and religious patients).
