Lysozyme is an antimicrobial enzyme that is found in a wide variety of organisms including birds, mammals, plants, insects, and bacteria. The enzyme is produced by submerged fermentation of a finely selected microbial strain followed by purification and formulation. The enzyme works on broad-spectrum of bacteria that are Gram-positive and, in some cases, also Gram-negative with little negative effects. The enzyme even works on some viruses. Therefore, it has been widely used as antimicrobial preservative for food and non-specific immunological factor for feed.
Lysozyme hydrolyzes the beta-glycosidic linkage between N-acetylmuramic acid and N-acetyl glucosamine in the peptidoglycan of bacterial cell walls and can also bind polymers of N-acetyl glucosamine, and in this way kills harmful microorganisms, protecting food or from spoilage and animals from diseases.

SAFE HANDLING PRECAUTIONS
Enzyme preparations are proteins that may induce sensitization and cause allergic type of symptoms in susceptible individuals. Prolonged contact may cause minor irritation for skin, eyes, or nasal mucosa. Any direct contact with human body should be avoided. If irritation or allergic response for skin or eyes develops, please consult a doctor.
Keep sealed after use every time to avoid microbial infections and inactivation of enzymes until its finish.
