Curcumin by its very nature is hygroscopic (absorbs atmospheric moisture) and requires the manufacturing facility to have humidity and temperature control systems. Owing to the variety of sources the flow rate of the powder can vary greatly and given that powders can contain various levels of curcumin great care must be taken when sourcing this ingredient. The powder lends itself to being compressed into a tablet or filled into a capsule. Supplement Factory will run trials before your formula is established to confirm consistency.
