Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9952511A1] The invention relates to starch capsules which protect various substances, such as living microbes or enzymes, against the effect of the environment or the intestines, and to a method for manufacturing such capsules. A fraction of a suitable size category is chosen from the starch granules, the porosity of the granules is improved by hydrolyzing, and the granules are filled with desired substances, such as living microbes and/or enzymes. When desired, the starch granules can be coated with a suitable biopolymer, such as starch or amylose.
