New Oral Probiotic Could Boost Oral Health, Many Applications

October 14, 2010: 10:23 AM EST

Frutarom, USA has launched a patented oral cavity probiotic that the company claims can boost oral health. The product, BLIS M18, is based on the bacteria S. salivarius M18, a proprietary strain of micro-organism that produces the BLIS antibacterial molecules, Salivaricins A, 9 and X that target and kills pathogens. Frutarom claims that BLIS M18 can be used in a range of applications, including chewing gum, chewable tablets, lozenges, powder drinks and fast-melt tablets.  Using products with the probiotic should enable people to maintain a healthily balance of bacteria beyond that possible through current mouth care regimes, protecting gums and teeth from pathogens and decay and helping to ensure fresher breath.
