We are a leading ingredients company whose natural proteins and enzymes are the first choice across the food, pharma, and feed industries. With a tradition of innovation spanning nearly 75 years, we aim to become the global market leader in the responsible development of proteins with our proprietary solvent-free processes. We are committed to R&D, knowing that scientific developments have led to our innovative portfolio of products, patents, and proprietary technologies. At Bioseutica®, we focus on the global supply of ultrapure bioactive proteins, extracting nature’s best from eggs and the pancreas. Our egg-derived proteins are highly valued across broad industries that take inspiration from their roles in nature. Lysozyme, Avidin, and Ovotransferrin possess potent natural antimicrobial properties, utilized extensively across food processing, animal health, nutrition, hygiene, and pharmaceutical industries. Leveraging our expertise as global leaders in Lysozyme production, we have developed specialty formulations, including the natural nootropic NA2R®, LYSOVIN for winemaking, LYSOLAC® for dairy, and the livestock immunity-boosting Entegard® range.
Beyond the egg, we also extract pancreatic digestive enzymes, including Trypsin, chymotrypsin, and Phospholipase A2. These have extensive applications in food processing, pharmaceutical, and medical research in applications requiring the faithful mimicking of natural digestive processes. Our manufacturing processes are built on these high-end, cutting-edge proprietary technologies, allowing us to produce ingredients of the highest quality in our facilities across Canada and Europe. Our international reputation is built on the reliability of our quality and service.

Fungal diseases are a public health issue: opportunistic infections (e.g. cryptococcosis and aspergillosis), hospital-associated infections (e.g. candidemia), and community-acquired infections pose an important threat to public health1. Globally, over 300 million people are afflicted with a serious fungal infection and 25 million are at high risk of dying or losing their sight2. AMCIPATRICIN diascorbate (code SPK-843) is a new semi-synthetic, water-soluble polyene antibiotic, with potent broad-spectrum antifungal activity, particularly against Candida spp., Cryptococcus sp., and Aspergillus spp.
100 years of Lysozyme
2022 marked 100 years since news of Lysozyme’s discovery reached the Royal Society. Let us take you on the journey of this 100-year story:
Lysozyme leads the way for DeepMind’s AlphaFold
Lysozyme contributed directly to our understanding of the structure-function relationship of proteins. It was the first solved structure that established the concept that the 3D shape of a protein[...]
A beginning for Lysozyme
Bioseutica® group has been producing lysozyme from hen egg-white since the 1950s, a history spanning nearly 75 years. But lysozyme’s story doesn’t begin with us. For that, we must look back to the earliest human use of egg-white[...]
Thus ended the collection of tears
The second installment of our 100 Years of Lysozyme series is now live. This week we discover how the abundance of Lysozyme in eggs was first discovered (hint: it wasn’t in the supermarket)[...]
Not a great lecturer
Fleming’s shyness, his being “not a great lecturer” as acknowledged by Allison, may in part account for the poor reception received at the first reading of the initial paper describing lysozyme[...]
Try £ 3
From 3p for tears to £3 for Picassos; in this installment, we uncover how Alexander Fleming’s eye and contributions had an immeasurable impact on medicine and science in the 20th century[...]
A Tradition of Innovation
The aftermath of the war has left Italy economically devastated like the rest of the European countries. In Milan, another Ferrari begins production, but this time of Penicillin.[...]
A Tradition of Innovation 2
The death of their first trial patient through the insufficient supply of Penicillin drove Florey, Chain, and their research assistant Heatley forward with inspired momentum.[...]
A Tradition of Innovation 3
24th May 1947 saw the establishment of SPA (Società Prodotti Antibiotici) by Pharmacologist Dr. Rodolfo Ferrari and microbiologist Carlo Callerio. Now Italy had its own, domestic Penicillin[...]
More than an antimicrobial
To most of us, if at least those reading, I hope, Lysozyme is best known as a potent, natural antimicrobial. This is evidently its primary purpose for the hen's egg, making[...]

TRYPSIN is highly valued as a workhorse protease across a range of industries due to its potent digestion of proteins.
Lysozyme, one of the most powerful natural antibacterial and antiviral compounds known to man, has been used in foods and pharmaceuticals for over three decades as it naturally inhibits the growth of many spoilage organisms, increases a healthy shelf life and ensures food safety. It also boosts the immunity system.
AVIDIN is a glycoprotein extracted from egg white using ion-exchange or affinity chromatography. Its biological importance was discovered in 1926 when rats were fed egg white and developed dermatitis, loss of hair and disruption of muscular co-ordination.
OVOTRANSFERRIN also called Conalbumin, is a glycoprotein with a molecular weight of 76,000. OVOTRANSFERRIN comprises approximately 13% of the protein content of egg albumen. More than sixty years ago, researchers determined
NA2R® is a clinically proven natural ingredient for the novel food/nootropics industry. Its daily consumption leads to increased brain serotonin levels, exerting physiologically beneficial effects on brain functions like the mood that, in turn, could promote the feeling of well-being, particularly during stressful times, as well as help emotional and cognitive functions.
AQUATRYP™ is our ready-to-use gentle enzymatic cell detachment reagent. A non-mammalian, non-microbial enzyme mixture, AQUATRYP™ can be readily incorporated into most routine cell culture protocols.
OVALBUMIN one of the most extensively characterised and best-understood antigens, contributing to our understanding of the structure-function relationship of antigen-antibody interactions.
The food enzyme lysozyme (peptidoglycanN-acetylmuramoylhydrolase; EC 188.8.131.52) is produced from hens eggs by Bioseutica B.V. It is intended to be used in brewing processes, milk processing for cheese production as well as wine production. The dietary exposure to the food enzyme–total organic solids (TOS) was estimated to be up to 4.9 mg TOS/kg body weight per day. This exposure is lower than the intake of the corresponding fraction from eggs for all population groups.
Want to improve your protein products' processing quality and biological activities? Try using Ovotransferrin as a lactoferrin substitute. Ovotransferrin (OVT) is a protein that has a high similarity to Bovine lactoferrin (BLF) and human lactoferrin (HLF) and may be used as a substitute for lactoferrin (LF) due to its limited production. While there were differences in isoelectric point, particle size, and hydrophobicity, it was still able to maintain good dispersity with similar denaturation temperatures. Ovotransferrin is more sensitive to heating at a pH of 5.0.
