Natamycin-based Food Preservation Solution

Natamycin-based Food Preservation Solution

Natamycin as a microbial preservative has attracted much attention for its safe, natural, and healthy characteristics. Aprofood can provide natamycin-based food preservation solutions, including screening assays and the development of complexes.

Introduction of Natamycin

Natamycin is a natural antifungal compound produced by the fermentation of Streptomyces. It can widely and effectively inhibit the growth of various molds and yeasts as well as the production of mycotoxins. It can be widely used for food preservation and freshness preservation as well as antifungal treatment. Natamycin has no inhibitory effect on bacteria, therefore it does not affect the natural ripening process of yogurt, cheese, raw ham, and dry sausages.

Our Solutions

Aprofood can analyze the effects of natamycin, film-forming agent, and their mixture on fruit hardness, storage quality, and physiological and biochemical metabolism of fruits and vegetables during storage, and screen out the effective concentration of natamycin for the preservation of fruits and vegetables in a non-polluting way. At the same time, we can help you to establish the residue analysis method of natamycin in different varieties of fruits, to help you to better study the residue dynamics of natamycin in fruit and vegetable storage at low temperatures.

Natamycin can be used in combination with other preservatives to form a complex preservative for food preservation, which can work better. Therefore, we can also help you to develop natamycin and nisin composite preservatives to better promote the application of natamycin in the field of food preservation.


It can be used for cheese, meat products, broth, moon cake, pastry, fruit juice, jam, jelly, pickled and soaked products, and mold-prone food.

Our Advantages

Natamycin-based Food Preservation Solution

  • Extend the shelf life of food, and prevent the deterioration caused by yeast and mold.
  • Reduce food recalls due to spoilage and lower production costs.
  • Satisfy consumers' demand for natural food.
  • Does not change the flavor of the food.
  • Low dose, high-efficiency.
  • Long duration of antimicrobial action.

Natamycin, as a new and efficient natural biological preservative, meets the requirements of future food preservative development. Natamycin effectively inhibits the growth of molds and yeasts but does not affect bacteria. These are the advantageous points that Aprofood focuses on. We not only provide you with food preservation solutions but also have complete technical support for natamycin preparation, which can help you obtain crude natamycin and better process conditions as soon as possible.
