Title:
Influence of casein-based microencapsulation on freeze-drying and staorage of probiotic cells 
Abstract:
The influence of microencapsulation in casein-based microcapsules produced by enzymatic gelation with transglutaminase on the viability of two probiotic strains, which differ in their sensitivity against dehydration, Lactobacillus F19 and Bifidobacterium Bb12 during freeze-drying and subsequent storage was investigated. Water activities after drying did not differ between free and encapsulated samples in all cases. However, Lactobacillus F19 survived in significantly higher numbers in the encaps...    »
