So, what is egg lysozyme?

Egg lysozyme is a natural protein found in egg whites that has been widely used as a food preservative to prevent bacterial growth. It is known for its ability to break down the cell walls of certain bacteria, making it a valuable ingredient in many food and beverage products. In addition to its preservative properties, egg lysozyme is also used as a flavor enhancer and stabilizer in a variety of foods, including cheese, wine, and baked goods. This versatile ingredient is a popular choice among food manufacturers looking to extend the shelf life of their products while maintaining their taste and quality.
