Natamycin, a natural and versatile anti-fungal agent with little to no flavour interference
There are numerous benefits of using a natural additive. Natamycin is a particularly versatile example of a food additive that prevents infections of fungal origins. It is highly effective even at low levels and is less pH sensitive than chemical alternatives. A pleasant bonus includes the neutral flavour impact of natamycin in comparison with its chemical counterparts. The agent is soluble and flexible in its application and it can be used in an aqueous state or powdered form mixed with an anti-caking agent to increase options for usability. This flexibility increases the potential uses of a more natural additive to cover a wide range of applications.
