Abstract A gfp-labelled E. coli strain K 12 was used to study the survival and release of calcium alginate encapsulated bacteria in ex vivo porcine intestinal contents. Encapsulated bacteria survived better in ex vivo porcine gastric conditions compared to non-encapsulated free bacterial cells. There was 2 log decrease in viable cells of encapsulated E. coli GFP + after 3 h incubation in gastric contents compared to 4 log decrease in the free non-encapsulated cells. There was a complete release… CONTINUE READING
