Description

Surface coatings and films can provide an alternative for extending the postharvest life of fresh fruits and vegetables. Application of natamycin coating can prevent fungal decay severity and weight loss during storage. However, conventional Natamycin, in the form of dense crystal, cannot cover the food surface for exerting antifungal activities.

 

Natasan™ is a perfect Natamycin coating by increasing the natamycin crystal linked through mushroom form transparent, ultra-thin mesh coating suitable for the treatment of fungal rot on the surface of fruits and vegetables.
