Phyto Corporation published in Food Navigator-Asia:
Phyto Corporation has developed the world's first '100% plant-based salt,'
"PhytoSalt," extracted from Salicornia, a plant containing high contents of salt. PhytoSalt is a naturally low-sodium salt that can reduce sodium intake by 20%. In addition, preclinical trials have revealed PhytoSalt to be effective on high blood pressure.
By desalinating Salicornia, Phyto Corporation has also developed a new superfood & 'low-calorie flour alternative,' "PhytoMeal," that is effective in reducing body fat.
Phyto Corporation holds more than 30 patents to PhytoSalt, PhytoMeal and other Salicornia-based products. In addition, Phyto Corporation recently received the “2019 Korea Outstanding Patent Award” (Biotechnology sector) for its patents.
