Feras food testing abilities can highlight levels of Natamycin within a range of food samples, including wine. Natamycin (INN), also known as pimaricin and sometimes sold as Natacyn, is a naturally occurring antifungal agent produced during fermentation.

Within this screen we regard a positive result as being above 5µg/L. As an optional addition to this test we are able to provide quantification if positive results are found.

Natamycin is listed as a banned additive across many wine producers and include importing countries. Although it is listed for use across a range of foodstuffs including meats and cheeses, to control a range of mycotoxins. Their banned additive status however requires extensive regulatory testing to ensure legislative requirements are being met.

Our Flexible methods are able to accurately quantify the levels of any positive results found of Natamycin to aid you within your quality control efforts & provide further detail which you can use to address any potential issues within your production processes.

Making use of state of the art technologies, our analysis methods provide the accuracy you need to have confidence in your results, as well as performing this analysis activity across a range of samples. Contact us to discuss how Fera can meet your bespoke requirements.
