Endolysins, bacteriophage-encoded catalysts, have arisen as antibacterial specialists that can be effectively applied in food handling frameworks as food additives to control microorganisms and eventually improve sanitation. Endolysins separate bacterial peptidoglycan structures at the terminal advance of the phage generation cycle to empower phage offspring discharge. Specifically, endolysin treatment is a novel system for controlling anti-toxin safe microorganisms, which are an extreme and progressively continuous issue in the food business. What's more, endolysins can take out biofilms on the surfaces of utensils. Besides, the cell divider restricting area of endolysins can be utilized as an apparatus for quickly recognizing microorganisms. Exploration to expand the utilization of endolysins toward Gram-negative microbes is presently being broadly led. This survey sums up the patterns in endolysin research until this point and examines the future uses of these proteins as novel food safeguarding instruments in the field of sanitation.

Keywords: Food Safety, Biocontrol, Endolysins, Bacteriophage, Disinfection.
