So, what is natamycin?

Natamycin is a natural antifungal agent commonly used as a food preservative. It is produced by the fermentation of Streptomyces natalensis, a soil bacteria found in mountainous regions. This ingredient is highly effective in preventing the growth of mold and yeast in dairy products, baked goods, and processed meats, which can extend their shelf life and improve food safety. Natamycin is approved by regulatory agencies such as the FDA and EFSA and is considered safe for human consumption. Despite its effectiveness, only small amounts are needed to achieve the desired effect, making it an economical and sustainable choice for food manufacturers.
