|What is Natamycin?|
Natamycin (INN), also known as pimaricin and sometimes sold as Natacyn, is a naturally occurring antifungal agent produced during fermentation by the bacteriumStreptomyces natalensis, commonly found in soil.
Natamycin has a very low solubility in water; however, natamycin is effective at very low levels. There is an MIC (minimum inhibitory concentration) of less than 10 ppm for most molds. Natamycin is classified as a macrolide polyene antifungal and, as a drug, is used to treat fungal keratitis. It is especially effective against Aspergillus and Fusarium corneal infections. Other common members of the polyene macrolide antifungal family are amphotericin B, nystatin, andfilipin. Natamycin is also used in the food industry as a natural preservative.
Application of Natamycin
1. Spraying 200-300mg/kg Natamycin 50 water suspension on the surface of cheese slice (FDA,72.155, 1994)
2. GB2760-1997: spraying (or digging in) 200~300mg/kg water suspension to the surface of cheese, meat food, meat soup, ham, Guangdong-flavor moon cakes, fresh juice, easily-moulded food, and various food processing devices. Residual must be less than 10mg/kg.
3. Adding natamycin 50 to yoghourt, juice with 5-20 ppm concentration.
Function of Natamycin
Natamycin has been used for decades in the food industry as a hurdle to fungal outgrowth in dairy products, meats, and other foods. Potential advantages for the usage of natamycin might include the replacement of traditional chemical preservatives, a neutral flavor impact, and less dependence on pH for efficacy, as is common with chemical preservatives.
Natamycin can be applied in a variety of ways: as an aqueous suspension (such as mixed into a brine) that is sprayed on the product or that the product is dipped into, or in powdered form (along with an anticaking agent such as cellulose) sprinkled on or mixed into the product.
Natamycin is used to treat fungal infections, including Candida, Aspergillus,Cephalosporium, Fusarium and Penicillium. It is applied as a cream, in eyedrops, or (for oral infections) in a lozenge. Natamycin shows negligible absorption into the body when administered in these ways. When taken orally, little or none is absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, making it inappropriate for systemic infections.
