The aim of this work was to verify the viability of Lactobacillus casei in chocolate flan as well as its survival under simulated human gastrointestinal conditions. After 1 and 15 days of manufacture, the dessert was evaluated for L. casei population and subsequently submitted to acidic solution for 30, 60, 90 and 120 min and to bile salts solution for 150 min. After each time, L. casei population was evaluated. The results were evaluated by variance analysis (ANOVA) and Tukey’s test. The population of L. casei in the flan was above 109 CFU/g during the shelf life, whose value is above the limit established for a probiotic food by the Brazilian legislation. L. c...
