This study aimed to define a protocol to assess the bioaccessibility of different food supplements by realizing an in vitro model simulating the digestive system at a lab scale. The discrete effect of fluids, enzymes, and bile salts observed on all tested products makes it possible to consider such purpose achieved.The results showed a discrete impact of enzymes and bile salts on all tested products, which was quantified with the proper analysis method. Such results are encouraging, and they provide room for future research, especially in terms of bioavailability evaluation.
This study also provides ROELMI HPC with a method that can potentially be applied to all its owned ingredients. Nevertheless, there is still room for future research, especially in bioavailability analysis, which implies a complete investigation of compounds directly released into the bloodstream, ready to be available for normal physiological functions.
