Microencapsulation using two different methods, spray- drying and emulsion technique were applied to preserve the viability of the probiotic Lactobacillus casei during manufacture and refrigerated storage. As coating materials to encapsulate the probiotic by spray-drying method, compatible biopolymers alginate and chitosan were utilized, while as a cross-linking agent, CaCl2 was used. In addition to the probiotic, oligofructose enriched inulin (Synergy 1®) as prebiotic was added to the medium intended for spray-drying. For microencapsulation of the probiotic by emulsion method, alginate and whey proteins were applied. Further, protective effects of four potentia...
