Chitosan has been proven as a natural health supplement with good antimicrobial, antioxidation and film-forming properties. With the animal-free trends, mushroom-derived chitosan is naturally replacing animal-derived Chitosan.
Handary provides two different types of mushroom chitosan, one is Chitoly™ AB produced by extracting from Agaricus bisporus. Which shows a board-spectrum antimicrobial effect when only dissolved in acidic solutions, and it also can form a film layer to barrier oxygen on solid food surface. The other is Chitoly™ OM produced by extracting from Pleurotus ostreatus, which can prevent microbial and oxidation spoilage when only dissolved in water, and also increase the clarification and reduce the sediments of drinks.
