  • Features
  • Applications
  • Regulations

The growing consumer demand for foods without chemical preservatives has caused all efforts to focus in on the discovery of new natural ingredients. Fungi chitosan has been accepted as aid-proccessing additive of natural origin in Australia, New Zealand, EU and USA. 

At Handary, Chitoly® AB fungal chitosan is refined from an insoluble chitosan preparation derived from the cell walls of Agaricus bisporus. The product is used as aid-processing fiber to reduce quality loss caused by microbial spoilage, enzymatic, non-enzymatic browning and quick degradation of vitamins during the shelf-life of fresh (-cut) fruit and vegetable and juices.
