The probiotics are extremely sensitive to various environmental factors, which imposes limitation on their health and functional effectiveness. Thus, development of delivery system for protection of viable cells while passing through different stages of the human digestion system is key factor in application of probiotic products. In our study, the effects of several polysaccharides such as alginate, κ-carrageenan, locust bean gum, gellan gum, xanthan gum and their combination with various prebiotic components (resistant starch, lactulose, lactosucrose) on encapsulation of probiotic Lactobacillus casei 01 strain were studied. Both regular and unregular beads with size distributions from 2 mm up to 5 mm were obtained. The encapsulation efficiencies varied from 64.4% up to 79%. Based on the texture's profiles, the capsules can be grouped into 5 clusters with squared Euclidean distance 3.5. Meanwhile, the starch-alginate and the lactosucrose LS55L - alginate beads were found to be the most stable and massive textural properties, whereas the gellan gum - xanthan gum and the chitosan coated alginate beads emerged as the softest. Encapsulation significantly improved the degree of gastric tolerance of probiotic cells even in the presence of pepsin. The INFOGEST in vitro digestion protocol was adapted to investigate the protection effects of different capsules. The highest survival (with loss rate of lower than 1 log CFU/g) was observed in the case of the cells encapsulated in starch-alginate beads. Moreover, the alginate microcapsules combined with lactosucrose LS55L also provided very promising shield for probiotics from the low pH of gastric conditions. Our findings suggest that incorporation of prebiotics into alginate-base encapsulation would be good idea in development of micro delivery systems that helps the survival of probiotics and their delivery to the target sites of action in human body.

The potential health benefits of probiotics may not be realized because of the substantial reduction in their viability during food storage and gastrointestinal transit. Microencapsulation can be used to enhance the resistance of probiotics to unfavorable conditions. A range of oral delivery systems has been developed to increase the level of probiotics reaching the colon including embedding and coating systems. This review introduces emerging strategies for the microencapsulation of probiotics ...

Abstract The research reported in this article is based on the hypothesis that crosslinking of starch can make it a potential wall material for targeted delivery of probiotics by altering its digestion. Three probiotic strains namely Lactobacillus casei , Lactobacillus brevis and Lactobacillus plantarum were microencapsulated with resistant starch. Encapsulation yield (%) of resistant starch microspheres was in the range of 43.01–48.46. The average diameter of resistant starch microparticles was...

Solid co-microcapsules of omega-3 rich tuna oil and probiotic bacteria L. casei were produced using whey protein isolate-gum Arabic complex coacervate as wall material. The in-vitro digestibility of the co-microcapsules and microcapsules was studied in terms of survival of L. casei and release of oil in sequential exposure to simulated salivary, gastric and intestinal fluids. Co-microencapsulation significantly increased the survival and surface hydrophobicity and the ability of L. casei to adhe...

Abstract Several studies have demonstrated differences among strains of probiotic bacteria with regard to their survival in acid environment. Probiotics must survive in gastric acids to reach the small intestine and colonize the host for appropriate prevention and management of several gastrointestinal diseases. To improve the survival rates of probiotic microorganisms during gastric transit, microencapsulation is considered to be a promising process. A variety of polymers are commonly used for ...

Within the active field of in vitro digestion in food research, the COST Action INFOGEST aimed to harmonize in vitro protocols simulating human digestion on the basis of physiologically inferred conditions. A harmonized static in vitro digestion (IVD) method was recently published as a primary output from this network. To validate this protocol, inter-laboratory trials were conducted within the INFOGEST network. A first study was performed using skim milk powder (SMP) as a model food and served ...

Abstract Electrospraying has recently emerged as a novel microencapsulation technique with potential for the protection of probiotics. However, research efforts are still needed to minimize the viability loss observed during the processing of sensitive strains, and to maximize productivity. The aim of the present work was the optimization of the electrospraying conditions for the microencapsulation of a model probiotic microorganism, Lactobacillus plantarum , within a whey protein concentrate ma...

Probiotic microorganisms are incorporated into a wide variety of foods, supplements, and pharmaceuticals to promote human health and wellness. However, maintaining bacterial cell viability during storage and gastrointestinal transit remains a challenge. Encapsulation of bifidobacteria within food-grade hydrogel particles potentially mitigates their sensitivity to environmental stresses. In this study, Bifidobacterium longum subspecies and strains were encapsulated in core-shell microgels consist...

Abstract Colonization of a human host with a commensal microbiota has a complex interaction in which bacterial communities provide numerous health benefits to the host. An equilibrium between host and microbiota is kept in check with the help of biliary secretions by the host. Bile, composed primarily of bile salts, promotes digestion. It also provides a barrier between host and bacteria. After bile salts are synthesized in the liver, they are stored in the gallbladder to be released after food ...
