SB Bioseutica Egg Proteins
Avidin is a protein present in hen egg white and tissues of birds. In hens, it is synthesized in the oviduct and then deposited in the albumin where it protects chicken embryos from disease-causing organisms that require biotin (vitamin H) to grow.
Bioseutica's member company, Neova Technologies Inc., produces purified enzymes extracted from government-certified pork pancreas glands. These enzymes are naturally occurring pancreatic proteins that play an important role in the digestion of food. The two main enzymes, trypsin and chymotrypsin, are refined and blended to meet different functional requirements as determined in consultation with customers. A third enzyme offered is phospholipase A2 (PA2).
Eggs are a rich natural source of proteins with diverse properties and functionality. All proteins in an egg work together to ensure supply of the developing chicken with nutrients for growths and to ensure protection from pathogens such as bacteria or viruses.
Lysozyme and our other Ovoproteins are extracted from naturally occurring hen egg-white, a non-GMO and renewable protein source.
