Discover Lycored’s robust SANTE


It starts with Lycored’s breed of red tomato, grown in Israel and the US using drip irrigation. Lycored’s tomatoes contain 4x more lycopene than conventional red tomatoes, so they’re primed to be used for our colors and active ingredients, while adding texture and boosting flavor.


The tomatoes are harvested, washed, sorted and screened. Skins are removed and the tomatoes are then crushed, pulped, dearated, heated and cooled.


The mixture is separated into liquid serum and fibrous tomato pulp, and the pulp is extracted of phytonutrients while crystals are separated to discover beautiful colors.

SANTE Applications

The tomato serum is used for SANTE liquid, which provides umami and kokumi taste sensations with lower acidity, lessening the need for or serving as an alternative to salt, added sugar, MSG, yeast and more.

The tomato serum goes through a spray drying process to produce SANTE in powder form. Both liquid and powder are used in sweet and savory food applications.

SANTE can be used at different levels to meet taste needs, from subtle to more robust.

Brands and manufacturers use SANTE for clean label products that are more desirable by many consumers. Depending on local regulations, SANTE is declared as a tomato concentrate or natural flavor.
