Delvo®Cid: Putting natamycin to work

For a natural food preservative look no further than our natamycin (or if you prefer, pimaricin) based solution, Delvo®Cid. It works against all known yeasts and molds for a wide variety of foods and beverages – with no compromise on the look, taste or smell of your product.

Delvo®Cid isn’t just good for people, it’s also good for profit: You need very small dosages to kill the many different molds and yeasts with the potential to spoil your food and endanger health.

This solution is colorless, odorless and tasteless. It’s suitable for applications including cheese, fermented milk, beverages, and baking; and it’s made from natural ingredients. What could be better?
