I purchased this awhile back, but I am confused why it contains titanium dioxide. I understand maybe for color, but we know now it is bad for you.

Titanium dioxide is normally added to things to make them look white.

Since it is in the capsule, I presume some decided it looked better if the capsule were light in appearance.

Or more likely:

They were concerned about protecting the contents of the capsules from photo-oxidation or other deterioration caused by light.  Only a little bit of Titanium dioxide would make the gelatin capsules opaque protecting the contents from light.

------

Now it happens that I think the light deterioration should not be a problem, since all the D'Adamo supplements are currently packaged in solid white bottles that should not transmit any light.

C Sharp, that would make sense.... as is I just poke them and empty the contents into water or something but let me tell you this stuff is a pain to get off of anything. If you just squish it in your mouth you get a sore because the acidity is too high.
