|Title:||Activity and survival of spray-dried Beijerinckia sp microencapsulated in different carbohydrates|
|Abstract:||This study examined the possibility of preserving Beijerinckia cultures by encapsulation using a spray drier, for use in biotechnological processes in the production of biopolymers. An adequate choice of the wall (coating) material is one of the factors that will determine the degree of cell survival and the maintenance of fermentative activity in the encapsulated inoculum. Malt dextrin, dehydrated glucose syrups, modified starch, and acacia (gum arabic) were used as wall materials. The results showed that spray-dried Beijerinckia encapsulated in malt dextrin, stored for 2 mo, and inoculated into sterile must after rehydration presented the greatest stability with respect to fermentative activity, although the glucose-encapsulated cells showed the highest percentage of viability during spray drying and during the storage period.|
