Chicoric acid (ChA) and caftaric acid (CafA) were identified as bioactive components of chicory and have been ascribed to a number of health benefits. In this study we investigated the hydrolysis of ChA and CafA with enzymes and a probiotic bacterium Lactobacillus johnsonii (La1). Chlorogenate esterase (24 U/mg) hydrolyzed 100% of ChA (10 mM) and CafA (10 mM) after 3 h, at pH 7.0 and 37 °C. Under the same reaction conditions, 100% hydrolysis of ChA and CafA was achieved with a spray-dried preparation of La1. The addition of La1 (100 mg/ml, 3.3 E9 cfu/g) to CafA solution in a gastrointestinal model (GI-model) resulted in 65% hydrolysis of CafA. This model simulates the physico-chemical conditions of human gastro intestinal tract. No hydrolysis of CafA was observed after the passage through the GI-model in the absence of La1. The results of this study support the hypothesis that ChA and CafA are degraded by gut microflora before absorption and metabolization.
