E235 Natamycin in Argentinian Wine

There have been reports in the German wine press that a substance called Natamycin has been found in some Argentinian wines. Following these reports, some wine suppliers in the UK extended their normal quality control to test for Natamycin at very low levels of concentration, and have identified some wines that contain traces of it.

Natamycin (E235) “IS APPROVED IN THE EU FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION in products like cheeses and sausages” they scream, “but it is NOT approved in wine”.
