This study aimed to optimize the microencapsulation
of probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus La-5 by atomization technique, investigating the use of milk protein and maltodextrin as encapsulating agents, as well as evaluate the morphology, diameter and the thermal behavior of the microcapsules.

This report on global microencapsulation
market segments the market based on the applications as Pharmaceuticals, Household utilities and products, Agrochemicals, Food and Feed Applications, and Others (including PCM).
of probiotic bacteria has been used in order to protect these organisms from adverse conditions of the digestive tract, such as the bactericidal effect of gastric juice and other acid means, presence of oxygen and freezing temperatures, to increase the stability and maintain the culture viability during the storage of the product (CHAMPAGNE & FUSTIER, 2007).
There are many techniques to carry out the microencapsulation
of various compounds and microorganisms, among which there may be mentioned spray drying, extrusion, fluidized bed, simple or complex coacervation, liposomes, inclusion in complexes (Gouin, 2004), spray coating, interfacial polymerization, and ionic gelation (Thies, 1996), the latter being a developed process for immobilizing a cell, which uses an anionic polymer mainly alginate as component of the membrane, in combination with divalent ions such as calcium to induce gelation (King, 1988).
Recently, as a microencapsulation
technique, W/O/W emulsion has been used for improving stability, storage and bioavailability.
The move is part of Appleton's strategy to consolidate its offerings and concentrate on its main operations, which include specialty paper and microencapsulation
technology also protects the original potency of the ingredients until they are pumped onto the skin.
Other projects, which are seen as in line with the company's strategy, are another production plant in Montreal, Canada; its joint-venture with the Jefo Group; and its recent launch of CAREpass[R] technology that tailors microencapsulation
of nutrients and feed additives to match digestive capacity and transit time of various food animal to minimize cost and maximize efficiency.
Martek Biosciences, producer of life'sDHA[TM] omega-3, has entered into a licence agreement for a patented microencapsulation
When they are exposed to water or a moisture environment, migration and exudation of them may occur, which lead to a decrease in the properties of the polymer composites, not only flame retardancy, but also some other properties (14), To deal with the above problems, microencapsulation
with water-insoluble polymers can be employed.
The antimicrobial activity of allyl isothiocyanate (AIT) from mustard oil, AIT liberated from 5% to 10% (w/w) non-deheated (NDH) hot mustard flour, and AIT following microencapsulation
was examined against a 3- to 6-log cfu per g, 5-strain cocktail of E.
