Phyto Corporation is a disruptive food tech company creating the future of food with "PhytoSalt" that can reduce sodium intake by 40%.
Phyto Corporation has developed the world’s first ‘100% plant-based salt’, "PhytoSalt," that is effective on high blood pressure. (Article published: http://www.mdpi.com/1422-0067/17/7/1176)
PhytoSalt is the world’s only ‘natural low-sodium salt’ extracted from Salicornia, a salt-accumulating plant, that overcomes the deadly condition of ‘Salt Stress’ resulting from the excessive salt intake. Salicornia is mass-cultivated by ‘Seawater Agriculture’, which is new agriculture suitable for an age of water and food shortage.
Also, PhytoSalt is a microplastics-free salt.
Phyto Corporation has also developed a new superfood and 'low-calorie flour alternative', "PhytoMeal," by de-salting Salicornia. Preclinical trials have revealed PhytoMeal to be effective on obesity. (Article: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/13880209.2018.1436073)
