Viability of Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG microencapsulated in alginate/chitosan hydrogel particles during storage and simulated gastrointestinal digestion: role of chitosan molecular weight.
TLDR
This study aimed to systematically explore the effect of molecular weight of chitosan coating on the functional performance of sodium alginate hydrogel particles for improving the viability of Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG).

The present work was focused on the development and characterization of new hydrogel systems based on natural origin polymers, namely, alginate and carrageenan, into different formats and with
Ionically cross-linked carrageenan-alginate hydrogel beads
TLDR
The carrageenan-alginate (Caralgi) beads exhibited a surface morphology smoother than that of the one-polysaccharide network beads, which enhanced thermostability of the networks.

TLDR
A synthetic overview on the most recent searches carried out on coated alginate microspheres finds Ca(2+)-alginate microparticles could experience a new era if scientists will increase their efforts in developing microp articles with smart properties.
