Morning Star will match dollar for dollar up to USD 25,000!
The Tomato Foundation is looking to obtain an EFSA Health Claim for Tomato Paste and other traditional tomato products, due to the high concentration of tomato phenols within them. If an EFSA Health Claim is obtained, an FDA Structure/Function claim will automatically be authorized in the USA, as well as expand other health claim opportunities within other territories.
This project is supported by consortium members made up of food processors, food industry reps, academia and researchers.

Heading into Phase 2 Fall 2018...Product Testing!
Phase 2 is scheduled to take place this fall, so 2018 product can be used for testing. This is why it is so important that the remaining funds be raised soon.
Don’t miss out on an opportunity to submit your samples. All consumer paste products that are tested in the study - and pass for sufficient bioactive content - will be awarded a license of use for the health claim. Donate more to submit additional samples.
*If you make a donation, please make sure to let Gwen or David know, so they can add your total to Morning Star’s fund matching.
