Natamycin is a white to yellow flavourless, odourless crystalline powder. It is very stable with its crystal form. The solubility of Natamycin is very low in water and in most organic solvents. Only 50mg Natamycin can be dissolved in pure water at room temperature. The low solubility makes it very suitable for use on the surface of food. Natamycin will stay on surface of food, where most moulds and yeasts may grow, but does not influence the natural course of fermentation inside.
Natamycin is classified into food grade and pharmaceutical grade natamycin.
-- Food Grade 95%
-- Food Grade 50%
-- Pharmaceutical Grade
