Abstract: Resistant starch (Hi-maize) at a concentration of 1% was used for the microencapsulation of Lactobacillus acidophilus in alginate beads. Moist and freeze-dried microparticles were obtained. The addition of prebiotics did not increase the size of the moist particles. By contrast, the freeze-dried microparticles of alginate and alginate + Hi-maize had diameters of 114.51 and 78.49 µm, respectively. The Hi-maize provided better protection for the probiotics after exposure to simulated gastrointestinal juice for both the moist and the freeze-dried microparticles. Regarding the viability of the probiotic culture during storage, both treatments proved to be viable, with suitable values conferring probiotic effects (<6 log CFU g−1), with at least 30 days of stability in the freeze-dried form and 135 days in the moist form, both under storage at room temperature (25 °C)
