Lycored’s tomato extract is first to achieve non-GMO project verification

Lycored’s supplement blend, Lycomato, has become the first tomato extract to carry the Non-GMO Project Verified seal.

The seal assures consumers that a product has completed a comprehensive third-party verification for compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard.

Certified in the US and EU, Lycomato offers a combination of carotenoids, tocopherols, and phytosterols, sourced from non-GMO tomatoes.

Zev Ziegler, 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.”

Consumer demand for non-GMO products has risen sharply over the past decade. Research by The Hartman Group suggests that 46% of people say they avoid GMOs, up from 15% 11 years ago.

Ziegler added: “2019 could be the year when demand for non-GMO products reaches a tipping point.  We’re delighted that Lycomato will carry the Non-GMO Project Verified seal ― it’s another sign of our unwavering commitment to providing consumer-friendly products of the highest quality, efficacy, and safety.”
