Due to storage and transportation, water loss, browning and decay might occur in postharvest fruits and vegetables. Koatilm is a mushroom chitosan-based coating with strong antifungal properties that effectively slow down fruit decay by forming a coating on the exocarp (skin,peel) of fruits and vegetables that reduces the respiration rate.
Koatilm™ is a chitosan-based coating which shows dual effectiveness in retarding enzymatic browning and avoiding tissue softening caused by fungal decay in postharvest fruits and vegetables.
