- ... Individuals who suffer from lactose intolerance can alleviate many of their symptoms by ingestion of lactase (β-galactosidase) with lactose-containing foods. However, this enzyme is deactivated when exposed to highly acidic gastric fluids, which reduces the amount reaching the small intestine. Oral delivery systems are therefore needed to protect lactase in the stomach, and then release it in an a ...

- ... Alginate microcapsule is widely used to encapsulate and protect lactic acid bacteria (LAB). This study aims to design microcapsules with different mechanical strength and clarify their protecting mechanism for Lactobacillus plantarum ST-III under simulated digestive conditions through physical and physiological analysis. By controlling viscosity and gelling ability of alginate solution, a series o ...
