Natamitsin, pimaricin of E235 2918290010
Natamycin or pimaricin (food additive Е235) - a strain produced during fermentation by Streptomyces natalensis bacteria. E235 additive is slightly soluble in alcohol and water. However, natamycin is quite effective at very low concentrations. By its nature, natamycin is a natural antifungal agent and is used in the food industry as an E235 preservative.
For decades, the preservative E235 has been used in the food industry to prevent the development of fungi in dairy products, meat and other food products. E235 additive can also be used in confectionery: cakes, pastries, biscuits. In addition, the additive E235 is used in the manufacture of cheese, as its shell. As a result of surface treatment (irrigation of the surface or immersion in a solution of the finished product), the E235 preservative remains strictly on the surface of the cheese. In some countries, the use of natamycin is allowed for the surface treatment of sausages.
In addition to the food industry, natamycin is widely used in medicine as a polyene macrolide antibiotic for the treatment of fungal diseases of the skin, mucous membranes, gastrointestinal path. Natamycin is widely used in the treatment of otitis externa; candidiasis of the skin and nails; dermatomycosis; intestinal candidiasis; fungal diseases of the oral cavity, such as acute pseudomembranous and acute atrophic candidiasis in patients with cachexia and immune deficiency and other diseases caused by pathogenic yeasts. Pills, suspensions, cream, suppositories are made from natamycin.
