- ... The aims of this work were to investigate the influence of solution parameters on Ca-alginate/chitosan hydrogel microcapsules generated by electrospraying through a single-stage procedure and subsequently employing it for encapsulation of live probiotics (Lactobacillus plantarum). The encapsulation yield of bacteria and their survival under simulated gastrointestinal conditions were evaluated. The ...
