To maintain viable cells over the critical value of 10(6) cfu g(-1) throughout shelf life of probiotic yoghurt, Lactobacillus acidophilus LA-5 was encapsulated by spray drying using whey powder (WP) and gum arabic (GA) mixtures. Box-Behnken Design (BBD) method was used to optimise drying conditions and WP to GA ratio in wall material. Responses were recorded for encapsulation efficiency and production efficiency of microcapsules. Optimum conditions were determined as: inlet air temperature, 140 degrees C; liquid flow rate, 0.485 L h(-1); WP to GA ration 0.83:0.17 (dry weight basis), resulting in 93.95% maximum encapsulation efficiency and 48.36% maximum production efficiency. After exposure to simulated gastrointestinal conditions, the microcapsules produced under optimum conditions provided better protection of L. acidophilus, when compared with free cells, with a reduction of 10.84% and 24.54%, respectively. Particle size of microcapsules was D-50:6.276 mm, which is acceptable for incorporation into dairy and other food products. (C) 2020 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.


Current applications of exopolysaccharides from lactic acid bacteria in the development of food active edible packaging
Moradi, Mehran; Guimarães, Jonas T; Şahin, Serpil (Elsevier BV, 2021-08-01)
The lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are usually recognized as safe for consumption and comprise several genera with different technological and health-promoting potential for food applications, including probiotic characteristics. Their exopolysaccharides (EPS) have interesting film-forming properties and may be used to produce edible packaging, as a structural enhancer, a bioactive agent or probiotic carrier in edible films and coatings. In these days, there is a specific demand for food products with reduced a...
Mathematical modeling of swelling in high moisture whey protein gels
Öztop, Halil Mecit (Elsevier BV, 2011-09-01)
Gels prepared from whey proteins can be used for controlled release of nutrients or active ingredients in food systems. The objective of this study was to characterize the water uptake by these hydrophilic gels to aid in the design of release systems. Whey protein isolate (WPI) gels (17% w/w protein) of different aspect ratios were submersed in aqueous solution at pH 7.0. Modeling of mass uptake is presented in terms of Case I (Fickian diffusion) and Case II (kinetic) models. Due to the extent of swelling, ...
Activity-loss kinetics of freeze-dried lactic acid starter cultures
Alaeddinoğlu, G.; Güven, Abamuesluem; Özilgen, Mustafa (Elsevier BV, 1989-11)
Lactic acid starter cultures were freeze-dried in whey and nonfat skim milk (NFSM) suspending media with varying amounts of glycerol, adonitol, and sucrose as the additives. Generally additives had different cryoprotective effects in NFSM and whey media. There was also an optimum cryoprotective additive concentration where viability and activity were protected best. The best results were obtained with freeze-dried L. bulgaricus with 0.29 m sucrose, 0.75 m adonitol, or 0.75 m glycerol in whey medium. Similar...
Efficiency of high pressure treatment on inactivation of pathogenic microorganisms and enzymes in apple, orange, apricot and sour cherry juices
Bayındırlı, Alev; Alpas, Hami (Elsevier BV, 2006-01-01)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of high hydrostatic pressure with a mild heat treatment on Staphylococcus aureus 485, Escherichia coli O157:H7 933 and Salmonella Enteritidis FDA in apple, orange, apricot and sour cherry juices. The effectiveness of the treatment on polyphenol oxidase activity in apple juice and pectinesterase activity in orange juice were also determined. An inoculum of microorganisms was completely inactivated at 350 MPa and 40 degrees C in 5min. The residual polyph...

Rumen microorganisms were used in a batch fermentor to investigate whether they could be used to produce acetic acid, propionic acid, butyric acid, and methane from cotton fibers. The kinetics of product formation were studied with the initial medium pH values of 6.0, 7.0, and 8.0. Propionic acid, butyric acid, and methane production were growth associated; acetic acid production was found to be nongrowth associated. The largest amounts of bacteria and protozoa were attained with the initial pH of 7.0. T...
