Biobest's BLUESTIM now available in Canada

The product can be used in indoor and outdoor food production, as well as some ornamentals.


Biobest has announced that BLUESTIM, a natural occurring osmolyte, has been approved by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to use in Canada. Indoor and outdoor food, ornamental, turf and cannabis producers can rest a little easier.

BLUESTIM per the company, contains the highest concentration of natural derived glycine betaine (>97%) in the market. Due to its natural source, BLUESTIM is OMRI listed and can be used in organic agriculture. Glycine betaine helps plants to cope with unfavorable conditions caused by temperature, water and salinity stress. Glycine betaine also helps mobilize calcium, reducing Ca++ deficiencies and physiological problems like blossom end rot (BER), tip burn and edge burn that are very common in fruit, leafy vegetables, cannabis, and some ornamental crops like poinsettias.

“One of the highlights of BLUESTIM is that its active ingredient has been extensively studied and a vast number of journal papers had been published about its activity. Independent research as well as Biobest’s conducted trials support the benefits that BLUESTIM can bring to your crop,” says Henry Murillo, Technical and R&D Manager at Biobest North America.
