What is it about?

The main purpose of this research was evaluating the viability of two bacteria of Lactobacillus Casei and Lactobacillus Bulgaricus in different conditions of simulated gastrointestinal circumstance and yogurt. Furthermore, the role of double-coated beads with alginate chitosan (First coating), and Eudragit S100 (Second coating) investigated comparing with free coating cells.

Why is it important?

This study also confirms the result obtained in previous researches by others, in which employing encapsulation for lactic acid bacteria mainly L. Casei and L. Bulgaricus acts as an extender of viability. Consequently, these bacteria will live longer than the usual circumstance. In particular, the impacts of microencapsulation were assessed in two conditions of simulated GI stress and presence in fermented dairy product namely yogurt.


Undoubtedly, writing of this article was something different from previous studies in term of research area and I look forward of hopeful events in the future through this manuscript.
