There are a few gelatin like soft gel encapsulation formulas...
We would like to use one of these formulas to encapsulate a 'corn syrup' solution.  The shelf life is important, can someone please assure use these potential fillers will not degrade the encapsulating shell..
43DE Corn Syrup    
53DE Corn Syrup    
63DE Corn Syrup    

Here is a few samples of the shell formulas:
