Phyto Corp

Phyto Corporation is 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  Food Tech  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 that can reduce sodium intake by 20% because, in addition to NaCl (sodium chloride),  PhytoSalt  contains a lot of mineral salts like  KCl , MgCl2 and CaCl2, which contributes to its salty taste. So,  PhytoSalt  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.
