Lycomato® is the first tomato extract to achieve non-GMO project verification.  

LYCORED announced that its tomato extract proprietary blend for supplements has received the Non-GMO Project Verified seal.  To date, Lycomato® is the only tomato blend to be given the seal which means that it has completed a comprehensive third-party verification for compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard.  The US- and EU-certified product combines carotenoids, tocopherols, and phytosterols, sourced from non-GMO tomatoes.

Zev Ziegler, Head of Head of Global Brand & Marketing (Health) at Lycored, said: “Letting nature provide a path towards wellness has always been a core pillar of our company. In that light, we’re proud to announce that Lycomato® has become the first Non-GMO Project verified tomato extract on the market.”
