Does Natamycin have a bacterial action?

It is very active against virtually all fungi and yeasts, but not against viruses, bacteria and other microorganisms. As it has no antibacterial action, it does not interfere with the food’s natural maturing processes.

Natamycin works with ergosterol, cholesterol and other sterols present in the cell membranes of yeasts and moulds, but not in bacteria.
