What methods can be used to detect natamycin and other antifungal substances?

The presence of natamycin and other antifungal agents can be determined using various analysis methods. These include LC-MS/MS, which is a technique that simplifies chromatographic analysis and shortens the time it requires.

There is also HPLC-DAD or high performance liquid chromatography with diode array detection; HPLC-UV or visible ultraviolet detection; and MEKC or micellar electrokinetic chromatography. They all use different analysis techniques that determine the amount of antifungal agents such as natamycin in a food item.
