Effect of microencapsulation on concentration of isoflavones during simulated in vitro digestion of isotonic drink

Dorota WyspiańskaJoanna Kolniak-Ostek


Isotonic drinks, fortified with microencapsulated maltodextrin and inulin isoflavone extract, were evaluated by organoleptic assessment and color measurement on the CIE L*a*b scale, then they were subjected to in vitro digestion. Changes of concentrations of isoflavones released during digestion of drinks and their ability to neutralize free radicals (ABTS) were determined. The effect of microencapsulation and storage on isoflavone content in isotonic drinks was also evaluated. In the organoleptic evaluation, beverages without additives and beverages fortified with microencapsulated extract were evaluated as better than a beverage with pure extract. Microencapsulation largely eliminated the unpleasant taste and odor of isoflavones and masked their color. Before digestion, isotonic drinks contained 29.07-43.17 μg of isoflavones in 1 ml. Microencapsulated isoflavones were released gradually during simulated digestion. The highest recovery of these compounds was observed for glycoside and malonylate derivatives of daidzein. Daidzin and genistin with encapsulation showed bioavailability of 0.02%-0.07%. The use of inulin as a carrier increased the stability of microcapsules during the storage of isotonic beverages.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
