Abstract: So far, many probiotic bacteria have been recognized for their beneficial effects on human and animal health. However, to act efficiently, these microorganisms must be delivered alive in the intestine, but several bacterial strains with high probiotics potential are greatly affected by acidic conditions of the stomach. The aim of this study was to evaluate the in vivo performance of succinylated β-lactoglobulin tablet to protect two probiotics, Bifidobacterium longum R0175 (Bl) and Lactobacillus helveticus R0052 (Lh), from harsh stomach conditions. The capacity to release alive these two bacteria in the pig intestine was evaluated by bacterial counting and quantitative PCR on Bl and Lh. The influence of these two strains on the intestinal microbiota was also evaluated by terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism (T-RFLP). Although some effects were observed on Ruminococcaceae, the results did not allow to conclude that the encapsulation of probiotics with succinylated β-lactoglobulin help to improve survivor after gastric transit.
