So, what is lisozima?

Lyzozyme, also known as lysozyme or lisozima, is a natural enzyme found in egg whites, tears, and milk. It functions as a powerful antimicrobial agent by breaking down the cell walls of bacteria, making it an effective preservative in the food industry. Lisozima is commonly used in cheese production to prevent unwanted bacterial growth, as well as in wine making to clarify wines. It is also used as an ingredient in some cosmetic products due to its antibacterial properties. Despite its versatile applications, lisozima can cause allergic reactions in some individuals, particularly those with egg allergies.
