Is e235 vegan?

E235, also known as Natamycin, is a food preservative derived from a natural antimicrobial compound produced by the bacteria Streptomyces natalensis. It is a white crystalline powder that is odorless and tasteless, making it ideal for use in a variety of food products. Natamycin is commonly used to inhibit the growth of yeasts and molds in cheese, baked goods, and other dairy products. It has been shown to be effective against a wide range of microorganisms, making it a popular choice for food manufacturers looking for natural ways to extend the shelf life of their products. Despite being classified as a food additive, natamycin is generally considered safe for consumption and is approved for use in many countries around the world.

E235 is a vegan food ingredient.
