Resumo: Four probiotic bacteria (Lactobacillus paracasei L26, L. casei-01, L. acidophilus Ki, and Bifidobacterium animalis BB-12 R ) were encapsulated in plain alginate or alginate supplemented with L-cysteine·HCl, and resulting microcapsules were stored at different temperatures, namely 21, 4, −20, or −80◦C for a period of up to6months. The results showed that the encapsulation in calcium alginate microcapsules was only effective in promoting protection at freezing temperatures, independently of the sensitivity of the strain. Storage of calcium alginate microcapsules at −80◦C indicated a protective effect upon viability of all four probiotic strains and the presence of L-cysteine·HCl in the alginate matrix improved protection upon cell viability of B. animalis BB-12 R . An increase in storage temperature of encapsulated bacteria caused an increase in rate of loss in their viability that was strain dependent. This study suggests that microencapsulation of probiotic cells in calcium alginate can be suitable for sustaining the viability of probiotics in food products that require storage below freezing temperatures, even in the absence of cryoprotectors, contributing to an increased shelf life.
