نمونه متن انگلیسی مقاله
Probiotic based products are associated with many health benefits. However, the main problem is the low survival of these microorganisms in food products and in gastrointestinal tract. Providing probiotics with a physical barrier is an efficient approach to protect microorganisms and to deliver them into the gut. In our opinion, microencapsulation is one of the most efficient methods, and has been under especial consideration and investigation. However, there are still many challenges to overcome with respect to the microencapsulation process. This review focuses mainly on the methodological approach of probiotic encapsulation including materials and results obtained using encapsulated probiotic in food matrices and different pathologies in animal models.
he inclusion of probiotics into food matrices is one of the most challenging lines of research in food technology. Probiotics in general, and some strains in particular, have a low resistance to different environmental conditions, such as oxygen, light or temperature. Thus, the protection and isolation of the microorganism from the food matrix and the environmental condition are crucial for the development of new probiotic food. In this sense, microencapsulation has gained an increasing interest, since it has been demonstrated that it could protect the bacteria not only during its production process but also during its incorporation into the food matrix, also with protective effects during storage. In conclusion, microencapsulation is of great interest since it could allow a wider application of probiotics in the food market, actually restricted to fresh or powder products.
