Stability study of a mixture of nisin and natamycin using the liquid chromatography method

link icon

Nisin and natamycin are natural preservatives that are used in a wide range of food products. The liquid chromatography method is used to determine the stability of an aqueous mixture in these preservatives, at an ambient temperature of 22 degrees centigrade and under dark conditions.Read More

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, Read More
