Title:
Transglutaminase-induced caseinate gelation for the microencapsulation of probiotic cells 
Abstract:
A novel method for the encapsulation of probiotic cells in foodgrade casein microcapsules was developed. The process is based on a transglutaminase-catalysed gelation of casein suspensions containing probiotic cells.Water insoluble, spherical capsules with a volume-based median diameter of 165*23 mm resulted from the process. Encapsulation yields of 70 15% and 93 22% were achieved for Lactobacillus resulted from the process. Encapsulation yields of 7015% and 9322% were achieved for Lactobacill...    »
