Conventional probiotics often loses its viability as it passes through the upper gastrointestinal tract. This encapsulation technology can improve the shelf life of probiotics and maintain viability during their passage through the human upper gastrointestinal tract.
This patented technology of encapsulating probiotics involves a modified spray-drying process which is high-throughput, food-grade, and inexpensive. This is applicable to both pharmaceutical and cost-sensitive industrial sectors, for example animal feed production. The encapsulated probiotic product achieves qualities of gastroprotection and targeted release in the intestinal region, thereby boosting the beneficial effects of probiotics on gut health.
This technology is suitable for companies looking for an improved probiotics delivery system to increase the viability of probiotics as dietary supplements and functional food products for both human and animal health.
This technology provides four major advantages in probiotics supplementation:
The modified spray drying technique used in this technology is a facile, high-throughput and industrially preferred method to produce environment resistant encapsulation systems.
Key Advantages of this Optimized Spray Drying Process include:
This technology may be used to encapsulate a variety of candidate probiotic microorganisms. With its versatility, this technology can henceforth be applied to many different applications and markets.
The encapsulated dry probiotic powder product is:
This technology can help companies to develop products that:
