Abstract:

Psyllium as a soluble fiber has a potential to stimulate bacterial growth in digestive system, stimulate probiotic growth in the colon, this study aimed to incorporate the modified psyllium husk (MPSH) in alginate beads containing probiotic bacteria viz., L. acidophilus and L. bulgaricus. Dietary fiber of modified psyllium husk waaas 79.67% and functional properties also found to be improved which was utilized for further encapsulation studies. The different formulations containing ALG-MPSH were prepared using extrusion technique and characterized in terms of size, morphology and surface properties, encapsulation efficiency (EE), viabilities in acid (pH 1.8, 2 hours) and bile (0.5% w/v, 2 hours) conditions, and release in simulated colon pH conditions. Three different formulations were prepared by using sodium alginate and Modified Psyllium husk with addition of 2% alginate and various levels of modified Psyllium husk 0.1, 0.2 and 0.3% respectively were investigated. The results revealed that the prepared spherical beads had diameter 1.65±0.05mm with survival 83.2±0.7% and encapsulation efficiency 99.7±0.7% was highest achieved for 0.2% Modified Psyllium.
