Read It Before You Eat It: How to Decode Food Labels and Make the Healthiest Choice Every Time A-Z Guide To Food Additive (Paperback)

E1105 is a food additive approved by the European Union (EU). It is a natural protein that acts as an antimicrobial preservative by breaking down bacterial cell walls.

The common name for E1105 is lysozyme.

E1105 is an enzyme present in tears, human milk, blood, saliva and sweat. Its main action is to catalyse hydrolysis reactions within the body.

Conjunctivitis can be caused by a lack of E1105 in the membrane covering the eye. As with all proteins, E1105 can act as an allergen to some individuals.

Examples of food and drink products that sometimes include E1105:

  • egg whites
