In this invention, a technique has been developed to protect lactic acid bacteria during spray drying at high temperature. This is archived by encapsulating bacteria cells with prebiotic and coconut oil giving a protection that is over three times more resistant than those that are unprotected. Encapsulation of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria has also been reported to protect them from lyophilization and rehydration and protective effect especially against oxygen toxicity in the product.
