- ... For the enhancement of the probiotics’ survivability, a nanostructured fiber mat was developed by electrospinning. The probiotic Lactobacillus plantarum was encapsulated in the nanofibers with fructooligosaccharides (FOS) as the cell material. Fluorescence microscope image and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) showed that viable cells were successfully encapsulated in nanofibers (mean diameter = ...
