ENCAPSULATION OF PROBIOTIC BACTERIA FOR HEALTH-PROMOTING FOODS

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

If you have ever fallen prey to travelers’ tummy – or have needed to take a course of antibiotics, you can probably understand the importance of a healthy bacterial balance in the intestine. It is well-documented that special probiotic – or health promoting – bacteria can help create such a balance and generally strengthen the immune system.

However, in order to be effective, a specific amount of live probiotic bacteria must be present and active when reaching the intestine. It can be difficult to ensure that added probiotic bacteria stay active and functional until the expiry date, particularly in foods that typically have a high liquid content or are stored at room temperature. 

To overcome this issue we created a research project in collaboration with Chr. Hansen that aims to develop technologies to encapsulate probiotic bacteria that can be utilized in health-promoting foods.

If you see yourself as a goal-oriented motivated researcher with:

·         interest to create solutions in food products for the improvement of human health,

·         background within food, materials science, chemistry, chemical engineering or similar study programmes,

·         hands-on experience with biopolymers, food ingredients and processing,

·         good communication skills (fluently) in English,

THIS IS THE MASTER PROJECT IDEAL FOR YOU!! 
 

Your responsibilities will include :

·         Laboratory work within the field of polysaccharides formulations, processing and characterization,

·         Execution of encapsulation methods,

·         Handling and reporting of experimental data.
