Improved survival of Lactobacillus paracasei NFBC 338 in spray‐dried powders containing gum acacia

Improved survival of Lactobacillus paracasei NFBC 338 in spray‐dried powders containing gum acacia Aims: To assess the protective effect of gum acacia (GA) on the performance of Lactobacillus paracasei NFBC 338 during spray‐drying, subsequent storage and exposure of the culture to porcine gastric juice. Methods and Results: For these studies, Lact. paracasei NFBC 338 was grown in a mixture of reconstituted skim milk (10% w/v) and GA (10% w/v) to mid log phase and spray‐dried at outlet temperatures between 95 and 105°C. On spray drying at the higher air outlet temperature of 100–105°C, the GA‐treated culture displayed 10‐fold greater survival than control cells. Probiotic lactobacilli in GA‐containing powders also survived dramatically better than untreated cultures during storage at 4–30°C for 4 weeks. A 20‐fold better survival of the probiotic culture in GA‐containing powders was obtained during storage at 4°C while, at 15 and 30°C, greater than 1000‐fold higher survival was obtained. Furthermore, the viability of probiotic lactobacilli in GA‐containing powders was 100‐fold higher when exposed to porcine gastric juice over 120 min compared with the control spray‐dried culture. Conclusions: The data indicate that GA has applications in the protection of probiotic cultures during drying, storage and gastric transit. Significance and Impact of the Study: Gum acacia treatment for the manufacture of probiotic‐containing powders should result in more efficient probiotic delivery to the host gastrointestinal tract. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Applied Microbiology Wiley

Abstract

Aims: To assess the protective effect of gum acacia (GA) on the performance of Lactobacillus paracasei NFBC 338 during spray‐drying, subsequent storage and exposure of the culture to porcine gastric juice. Methods and Results: For these studies, Lact. paracasei NFBC 338 was grown in a mixture of reconstituted skim milk (10% w/v) and GA (10% w/v) to mid log phase and spray‐dried at outlet temperatures between 95 and 105°C. On spray drying at the higher air outlet temperature of 100–105°C, the GA‐treated culture displayed 10‐fold greater survival than control cells. Probiotic lactobacilli in GA‐containing powders also survived dramatically better than untreated cultures during storage at 4–30°C for 4 weeks. A 20‐fold better survival of the probiotic culture in GA‐containing powders was obtained during storage at 4°C while, at 15 and 30°C, greater than 1000‐fold higher survival was obtained. Furthermore, the viability of probiotic lactobacilli in GA‐containing powders was 100‐fold higher when exposed to porcine gastric juice over 120 min compared with the control spray‐dried culture. Conclusions: The data indicate that GA has applications in the protection of probiotic cultures during drying, storage and gastric transit. Significance and Impact of the Study: Gum acacia treatment for the manufacture of probiotic‐containing powders should result in more efficient probiotic delivery to the host gastrointestinal tract.
