Researchers at the University of Wolverhampton in England are seeking commercial players to take on their probiotic protection technology they have been working on for several years.

The research, led by Dr Iza Radecka, has shown that a biopolymer can protect probiotics including Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria strains when immersed in a simulated gastric juice solution for up to four hours – compared to only two hours survival for non-coated populations.

“The findings of the work carried out to date, has opened up new avenues on how probiotics can be administered and has already stirred up significant interest within the probiotics industry,” said Dr Radecka, senior lecturer in Microbiology.

“Our research is still on-going and we are seeking additional collaborations with commercial partners to discover the full potential of improvements that can be made to benefit the industry in the future.”

“In addition, we are also keen to meet with partners who can assist in the production of poly-γ-glutamic acid on a commercial scale.”
