So, what is e1105 lysozyme?

E1105 lysozyme is a natural enzyme extracted from chicken eggs that is commonly used as a food preservative due to its ability to inhibit the growth of certain bacteria. This ingredient is also used in the production of cheese, wine, and other fermented foods to prevent spoilage and improve texture. As a protein, it is an allergen for some individuals and may cause mild to severe allergic reactions. Despite its potential drawbacks, lysozyme is considered a safe and effective food ingredient that has been used for decades in the food industry.
