Improving food safety and global health with natural and clean-label ingredients

In today's globalized world, ensuring food safety is more critical than ever. Consumers demand products that are not only safe and long-lasting but also produced sustainably. Bioseutica®'s clean-label ingredients, such as lysozyme, effectively meet these needs.

What is lysozyme?

Lysozyme is a natural enzyme known for its potent antimicrobial properties in the food industry. Lysozyme helps extend the shelf life of products and maintain their safety by fighting spoilage and pathogenic bacteria. Lysozyme is found naturally in various bodily secretions such as saliva, tears, and milk. Its primary role in nature is to defend against infection by breaking down the cell walls of Gram-positive bacteria, a process known as bacteriolysis. This action makes lysozyme very effective as a natural antimicrobial agent. In the food industry, it is used to prevent spoilage and extend the shelf life of perishable products by inhibiting the growth of bacteria. The enzyme's natural origin and mode of action make it a key component in clean-label food strategies that appeal to consumers seeking minimally processed, chemical-free, and solvent-free products. Its use in food preservation ensures safety and quality and aligns with the growing trend toward sustainable and ethical food production practices.

The benefits of clean-label ingredients in food production

Growing consumer demand for clean-label products free of synthetic chemicals and unnecessary additives highlights how products such as lysozyme align with this demand due to their natural origin and solvent-free production methods. Using sustainable, clean-label ingredients for global health is often called “One Health.” This approach considers the interconnection between people's health and the environment, emphasizing that using natural and environmentally friendly ingredients contributes to the overall well-being of our planet. Lysozyme plays a crucial role in ensuring the health and safety of populations worldwide.
