Wausau, WI — UAS Laboratories LLC has acquired Nebraska Cultures, Inc., a company which specializes in custom manufactured probiotic solutions.
Through this transaction, UAS Labs will accelerate its leadership in the fast-growing probiotic industry. UAS will now offer its global partners a complete portfolio of stable products including exclusivity to one of the longest studied probiotic strains, Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS.
UAS will now also provide spore-based probiotics using the well-established ProDURA brand. Maypro Industries, a distributor for Nebraska Cultures, will continue to support the ProDURA line with their existing customer base.
Dr. Khem Shahani, founder of Nebraska Cultures, discovered and began research on the DDS® 1 strain of L. acidophilus in 1959. Throughout his career, he published over 200 peer-reviewed scientific articles, many demonstrating the potential for DDS® 1 to improve health.
“We are honored to have served the nutraceutical industry for several decades, beginning in the 1950’s with my father’s pioneering research. We are thrilled to find in UAS a home where this work can contribute to tomorrow’s industry through the tremendous technical and production capabilities that this company provides,” said Nebraska Cultures COO Michael Shahani.
UAS Labs President and CEO, Kevin Mehring states, “We are extremely proud to have acquired a company that has shown strong values,” said UAS Labs President and CEO Kevin Mehring. “This groundwork enables our passionate group of colleagues to further our company mission of providing leading and trusted probiotic-based solutions.”
