14 July/August 2021 Tablets & Capsules Functionalized mineral Functionalized mineral provides greater stability, performance, and survival rates of probiotics during formulation and delivery to the gut. Ingredient provider has partnered with contract researcher Nizo to study the mineral's influence on probi- otic viability during production and delivery processes. Study results show that the mineral is an effective stabilizing agent during spray drying, shelf-life, and in-vitro digestion of probiotics—outperforming the organic benchmark excipient malto- dextrin. Mineral's strong water-binding properties and significant buffering capac- ity make it a suitable inorganic probiotic carrier for use in pharmaceutical, nutra- ceutical, and food products.
