Tech Spotlight - Phyto Corp


Our Spotlight for July is Phyto Corporation – a food-tech start-up that has created “PhytoSalt” a plant-based salt that can reduce sodium intake by 20%.

We recently came across Phyto Corporation during a client search for innovative FoodTech start-ups. The company is headed up by Duke Kim, Founder & CEO, and is based in South Korea.

The company has developed the world's first 100% plant-based salt, "PhytoSalt," by extracting salt from Salicornia, a plant containing a large amount of salt. PhytoSalt is naturally low sodium salt and can reduce sodium intake by 20%, so is effective on high blood pressure.



The company has developed other innovative products including a new superfood ingredient, "PhytoMeal," that is effective in reducing body fat, functional food products such as “PhytoMemory" a dietary supplement, and "MemoryTea”, a Ready-to-Drink tea, which is good for memory - all from the Salicornia plant.

Phyto Corporation is being recognised for its innovative products & was recently selected as an innovative company in the biotechnology sector in the "CAC Global Summit 2020" by Seoul metropolitan government.
