E1105 - пищевая добавка, консервант лизоцим, lysozyme (Е1105)

Lysozyme is an enzyme that is naturally occurring in hen's egg whites and can also be found in human tears, saliva, blood and milk. Commercially it is purified from hen egg whites and functions as an anti-bacterial agent by destroying the cell walls of gram positive bacteria. Lysozyme acts as a natural preservative that inhibits the growth of bacteria that lead to spoilage. It is mainly used in the cheese industry in the maturation of European cheeses, by preventing the growth of Clostridium tyrobutyricum spores which cause butyric acid fermentation leading to product loss and spoilage.

May be harmful by inhalation or ingestion, or act as an irritant.

Common Uses

Used in infant nutrition, pharmaceutical preparations and in European semi-hard cheeses like Gouda, grana and Gruyère cheeses.
