Our customers have exactly what they need when the materials arrive at their production facility.” (2) Optimized Ingredients: “This is a broader scope than creating tablet-grade ingredients. Maybe the powder is too fine and needs to be milled for use. Or, perhaps an ingredient needs to be coated for time release. TSI Group then goes the extra mile by identifying ways to improve processes so materials are specifically tailored to your needs. It’s not that we’re using proprietary processes.
