The application of the new nutri-score system in food labelling in europe

Food safety from the origin to the destination of foods and to their point of consumption has become a very important matter, and the development of food additives like Natamycin (E 235) ensures their consumption time and prevents them from spoiling prematurely. However, food safety can also be viewed from the standpoint of clear, precise information for consumers about the nutritional value of the food they are going to pay for, and their right to choose certain foods over others with the assurance that they use the same system to determine their nutritional content. The implementation of the new Nutri-Score labelling system for foods in the European Union is now underway to help millions of consumers take decisions, and this is leading to adaptations by companies that manufacture, package and label foods.   How is the classification calculated based on

The new nutri-score labelling system applied to cheeses and dairy products

labelling is constantly evolving due to the need to ensure that consumers receive the best information about food. The European Union legislation that covers information on this labelling is applicable in all the member countries. The need to provide nutritional information about some foods in the most graphic and user-friendly way had led to the promotion of Front-of-Pack Labelling (FOPL). The most widely used front-of-pack labelling format is known as Nutri-Score. It was first developed in France, using an English model as a benchmark, and its main asset is its simplicity. This labelling standard does not cover the packaging of food additives such as Natamycin. The additives that food contains are not taken into account when calculating the extent to which the food is nutritious, since the role of additives in the composition of food is to ensure its safety

Applying natamycin in the synthesis of nanofibres to manufacture active packaging

The manufacture of active packaging for food is undoubtedly the field with the greatest potential in scientific research applied to the food sector. That is why many studies are being carried out on new technologies for manufacturing the new generation of packaging, in order to optimise the dose and effectiveness of the substances they contain, such as Natamycin. One of these is a scientific study carried out in Brazil which was recently published in the journal SN Applied Sciences. The study was carried out using the technique of electrospinning  to manufacture nanotextures, to which various antifungal substances were applied. It showed that of the five compounds tested, Natamycin had the greatest influence on the measurements of the nanofibre. Thanks to this enhanced interaction with the microfabric, the samples containing Natamycin presented better antifungal activity. The advantages of Natamycin compared to
