A very original new method has recently been developed to rapidly determine the presence of natamycin in commercial samples of yoghurt beverages and cheese. A screen-printed carbon electrode has been produced, which is modified by a composition of multi-wall carbon nanotubes and nanoparticles. As a result, the electrode becomes a useful sensor that is able to determine the presence of natamycin under optimal conditions. The electrochemical behaviour of the electrode Read More
Traditional microbiological counting methods and the visual assessment of deficiencies in the growth of antifungals such as natamycin have proven to be imprecise methods due to their limits in terms of opacity.
The type genus of the Streptomycetaceae family of which includes Streptomyces, the largest family of Actinobacteria, contains a long list of antibacterial, antiparasitic and antifungal agents such as natamycin – which is also known as Streptomyces natalensis or pimaricin.Read More
The Colletotrichum acuatum bacterium is responsible for strawberries decaying. This type of fruit has previously been treated with azoxystrobin. Read More
The type and concentration of the edible components are two of the main factors affecting the chemical, microbial, quality, sensory and preservation properties of coated cheese.Read More
Changes may take place in some dairy products related to their natamycin contents. These changes may be directly related to the refrigeration and temperature conditions, as well as their possible exposure to sunlight.
Biopolymers – the macromolecules found in living things – have traditionally been mixed with other natural products such as natamycin to create a protective layer that prevents the growth of fungi.Read More
The manufacturing process for Kashar cheese consists of two separate stages: the production of curds, and the texturing of the ripe curd to soak it in hot water. The cheese can then be coated with casein and natamycin in order to prevent mould from forming.Read More
The baking conditions and the subsequent storage of bread, using probiotics or antifungal agents such as natamycin, are two of the factors that the food industry is studying in order to guarantee the useful life of this type of product.Read More
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
