Casein and natamycin coating for Kashar cheese

The manufacturing process for Kashar cheese consists of two separate stages: the production of curds, and the texturing of the ripe curd to soak it in hot water. The cheese can then be coated with casein and natamycin in order to prevent mould from forming.

The effect of natamycin on the storage of bread

The baking conditions and the subsequent storage of bread, using probiotics or antifungal agents such as natamycin, are two of the factors that the food industry is studying in order to guarantee the useful life of this type of product.

Effective systems in food packaging: the double reaction system and natamycin

Antifungals like natamycin are added to prolong the shelf life of foods. Since microorganisms tend to develop resistance to antifungals when they remain in contact with them, the effect of the antifungals slowly diminishes. This means that it is necessary to control their release rate to have an additional advantage over the microorganisms. There are some sensitive systems that in some cases respond to more than one stimulus: for example, temperature and pH. This type of stimulus is primarily known as thermo-effective material and is made up of a material that consists of two types of groups: hydrophilic and hydrophobic. The hydrophilic group is able to create a cover around the hydrophobic group, with natamycin acting as a release material thanks to its antifungal properties. This is, in turn, able to raise or lower the temperature depending on the group.
