Abstract

The population's concern about health, food and weight maintenance has grown gradually, with this the quality of products and what is consumed has attracted attention. Consumers are looking for alternatives, such as products that, in addition to food, may offer some health benefit, known as functional. The consumption of frozen desserts has increased and with this, an opportunity has been seen to develop a product that serves consumers who want functional, tasty and affordable food. Therefore, this project aims to develop a functional sorbet plus xylitol and microcapsules of Lactobacillus gasseri and tincture of Cynara cardunculus L. The beneficial action to health will be given by the symbiotic effect of the artichoke with the Lactobacillus that will exert antidispeptic action and alteration intestinal flora, respectively, aiding in the loss of abdominal fat. The project aims to apply microparticles prepared in a supercritical medium in the High Pressure Technology and Natural Products Laboratory and will be developed over 12 months. Specifically, it will include preparation, physical-chemical and rheological characterization of the functional sorbet, in vitro digestibility tests and product acceptance test. (AU)
