Handling of minor ingredients with low dosage levels, and making sure they are adequately dispersed in the product, are critical challenges for food manufacturers. Natamax® Salt DA is an easy to handle form of natamycin that also provides a solution to improve dispersibility. This diluted salt blend is formulated for easy dosing, easy handling, and improved dispersion.

This natamycin product is diluted with salt, making it easier to weigh and handle on the production floor.  And by simply decreasing your normal salt usage by the amount coming from Natamax® Salt DA, there is no effect on flavor or your nutritional statement for sodium.
