From papaya to FPP®
The longevity and health benefits of papaya have been known by Asian and native Central American cultures for centuries.
In Japan, the population has one of the highest life expectancies in the world, partially explained by a diet regularly consisting of fermented foods.
The process behind FPP® begins on Hawaii’s Big Island where the papayas are grown.
These Carica papayas are certified non-GMO by the Department of Agriculture of the State of Hawaii.
Osato Research Institute (Gifu, Japan) successfully combined the benefits of the Carica papaya and those of fermented foods with their proprietary fermentation process.
This 10-month process ingeniously transforms the fruit into FPP® (Fermented Papaya Preparation).
FPP® has been produced for 25 years by Osato Laboratory Inc. in Japan under the highest quality standards. It is marketed worldwide, with more than 15 million packets sold annually.
