Bactozym® works on gram positive bacteria where the cell membrane is composed of glucosamine and muramic acid, the n-acetyl muramidase action intervenes breaking the glycoside bond between the acid of these two molecules, thus starting lysis of the cell and consequent bacterial inactivation. Bactozym SG is used to inhibit the growth of lactic acid bacteria such as Oenococcus, Lactobacillus and Pediococcus which can lead to sluggish or stuck ferments and elevated volatile acidity, however it is ineffective against acetic bacteria (gram negative).
