Bioseutica’s subsidiaries, Fordras SA, Neova Technologies Inc. and Bioseutica BV are experts in the extraction and purification of egg proteins which form the Lysozyme and Ovoproducts division. Our main egg derived proteins include lysozyme, avidin, ovalbumin and ovotransferrin.
All these products are derived from natural, renewable sources of egg white and are manufactured without the use of GMO or recombinant technologies. Our products are generally offered in food and pharmaceutical grades, however, our versatile production technology and extensive GMP capabilities allow us to meet a full range of customer-specific quality requirements.

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.
OVALBUMIN is the predominant protein in egg white comprising approximately 54% of the total protein. It is one of only two pure proteins that can adequately meet nutritional requirements for amino acids.
OVOTRANSFERRIN, (Conalbumin), is a glycoprotein with a molecular weight of 76 KDa. Ovotransferrin comprises approximately 13% of the protein content of egg albumen making the iron in a bacterial culture medium nutritionally unavailable to potentially harmful micro-organisms.
