VGP, world leader in the field of Pimaricin and Natamycin
VGP, was created in 1988 in Vic, and since its inception we are dedicated to both the manufacturing and the supply and export of raw materials, ingredients and additives to major food industries worldwide.
Immunochromatographic lateral flow is a method that has been specially developed to detect natamycin in samples of milk and cheese. To do so, a monoclonal antibody combines with nanoparticles of gold, which acts as the main reagents to determine whether natamycin is present.
The antimicrobial activity of essential oils, organic acid salts and natamycin is used to assess and monitor their effectiveness against four pathogens: Escherichia coli, Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella Typhimurium and Aspergillus niger.
