Functional foods are those supplemented with nutrients or substances that provide health benefits. Among the functional foods are prebiotics and probiotics. Yogurt is considered a healthy food, it can also be a functional food if added probiotic micro-organisms and/or prebiotic compounds. This study aims to prepare yogurt added pulp juçara and commercial probiotic strain Lactobacillus acidophilus La-5 to evaluate the viability during storage and in vitro resistance to simulated gastric and enteric conditions. Will be produced three treatments of yogurt, fermented yogurt, yogurt fermented with probiotic culture (control), and yogurt fermented with probiotic culture added pulp juçara. The different treatments will be evaluated the resistance of probiotic storage and in parallel, investigated the resistance to gastric and enteric conditions in vitro, with the objective of evaluating the influence of the addition of pulp juçara on this resistance.
