Chitoly™ OM is a kind of water-soluble chitosan extracted from Pleurotus ostreatus, which can be used as aid-processing polymer to reduce quality loss caused by microbial spoilage, enzymatic or non-enzymatic browning and quick degradation of vitamins during the shelf-life of fresh fruit and vegetable.

Description

Chitoly® OM water-soluble fungal chitosan is made from the cell walls of Aspergillus niger of oyster mushroom. The product is used as edible coating to extend the freshness by delaying the microbial spoilage and browning in fruit and beverage.
