Stratum Nutrition® Announces Market Ready Dairy Free BLIS K12® and BLIS M18®

Stratum Nutrition®, (a business of ESM Technologies), in conjunction with Blis Technologies, is pleased to announce the release of dairy-free BLIS K12® and BLIS M18® to Stratum Nutrition’s ingredient science-backed portfolio. Stratum Nutrition is the North American distributor for Blis Technologies. The release of both allergen free ingredients is helpful to customers seeking to formulate dairy free, probiotic lines. Strains are available today to customers with appropriate equivalency data.  

Brian Watson, CEO at Blis Technologies said, “We are pleased to offer Stratum customers Dairy Free versions of BLIS K12® and BLIS M18® recognizing that a proportion of consumers may have had allergens to dairy that have prevented them from accessing our probiotic strains. We have partnered with Sacco System, a probiotic fermentation expert, to develop these versions of the strains and provide ongoing supply. It is important to note that we will continue to offer the original versions of both BLIS K12® and BLIS M18® that have been trusted by a wide range of customers over many years.” 

Blis Technologies has been the scientific leader in oral probiotics since 2002 and they continue to lead the way in oral probiotic supplements. When it comes to a healthy oral cavity, Streptococcus salivarius is the dominant organism present and several strains have been shown to produce favorable bacteriocin-like inhibitory substances (BLIS). Two strains are currently marketed as probiotic ingredients, BLIS K12® and BLIS M18®.  

BLIS K12® helps maintain ear, nose, and throat health and supports our natural immune system defenses.* It is safe and effective for children and adults and features a robust research portfolio with over 30 years of published research. BLIS M18® is a friendly bacteria that can be used in conjunction with regular oral hygiene practices to establish a healthy balance of natural bacteria in the mouth to support healthy teeth and gums and overall health.  

Micah Osborne, CEO at Stratum Nutrition®, “We are proud to be partnered with Blis Technologies as they continue to pursue research to provide high quality probiotic solutions. The BLIS ingredients have been a key part of our proprietary branded ingredient portfolio. We are excited to be able to build on this with the addition of dairy free BLIS K12® and BLIS M18®.”
