Fungi in food are a major challenge for global food manufacturers. The usage of Natamycin is permitted worldwide as a highly effective antifungal solution. Unlike most antimicrobial, Natamycin is effective at low concentrations and active over a wide pH range (3-9). Because Natamycin is used at very low dosages (1-10 mg/kg), the cost-in-use may be comparable to synthetic preservatives and significantly lower than other natural inhibitors.
At Handary, Natamycin is used as an active ingredient that is designed to meet specific application needs. Natap® presents the highest standard of pure Natamycin conforming to E235, it minimizes the dosage and residues as a health food additive. Natalac® is a classic, well-known brand of natamycin as an active ingredient for the dairy industry, Natanacl™ can effectively eliminate the risk of yeasts and moulds in dairy and meat products. While Natadex™ is specifically produced for the antimycotic treatment of bakery products and Natasan™ is a perfect Natamycin coating to form a complete surface treatment for fruits.
