Phyto Corporation is 

a disruptive food-tech startup

creating the future of food

with the world's first plant-based salt,

"PhytoSalt," that can reduce sodium intake by 20%

PhytoChemicals

Salicornia grows in many seashore lands around the world. It is a halophyte that is raised by seawater and accumulates salt in its body. Salicornia is also known as ‘sea beans’ or ‘sea asparagus,’ and is a nutritious and sustainable food resource. So, people have attempted to consume Salicornia as a food source from a long time ago, but they could not eat it because it was too salty.

Phyto Corporation has, for the first time, isolated salt from Salicornia, and developed a new food resource, “PhytoMeal” which is not salty and thus edible. Further, the company has developed a plant-based salt, “PhytoSalt,” which separates the salt from the Salicornia plant.

PhytoSalt is a naturally low-sodium salt that can reduce sodium intake by 20%, so it is effective on high blood pressure. PhytoMeal is a new superfood ingredient that is effective in reducing body fat.  ​

Phyto Corporation holds 35 patents to PhytoSalt, PhytoMeal and other Salicornia-based products.

Salicornia Cultivation,

Seawater Agriculture

•   Salicornia, also known as ‘sea beans’ or ‘sea asparagus,’ is a nutritious and sustainable food resource.

•  Salicornia can be mass-cultivated by seawater agriculture, which is a new agricultural method suitable for an age of food shortage resulting from water shortage.

•  Seawater agriculture is sustainable and eco-friendly for the future of food;

it does not require the use of any freshwater, fertilizers or pesticides.

•  Salicornia and seawater agriculture can solve global food shortages and climate change problems.

•  Salicornia cultivation contributes to the increase of profit for farmers.
