Unlocking Carrot’s Gold

The extraordinary immune and gut health benefits of Benicaros® trace their origin to the humble carrot. Within the rigid cell walls of carrots, beyond the reach of human digestive powers, locked in a pectin molecule lies Rhamnogalacturonan-I or cRG-I. Marketed as Benicaros, cRG-I possesses diverse properties but must first be extracted to unlock its full potential. The process by which NutriLeads extracts cRG-I is a story of partnerships with local farmers, advanced technologies, and environmental stewardship.

Journey from the earth to the gut microbiome

Benicaros® upcycled from carrot pomace

Carrots are grown naturally by trusted farmers, ensuring traceability.

The carrots are washed with water and steam peeled.

The carrots are pressed. Carrot pomace remains. This is upcycled into Benicaros.

Benicaros (RG-I) is unlocked from the carrot pomace through a proprietary extraction process. It is then packaged as liquid concentrate or dried into powder.

NutriLeads ensures the powder and liquid contains enough active RG-1.

Benicaros can easily be added to various finished product formats

Local farm partnerships, upcycling and advanced technologies

Benicaros is Upcycled and All-Natural

Carrots are one of the world’s most popular vegetables. Millions of pounds of carrot pomace are produced each year as a side stream from juicing, creating a sustainable supply chain for Benicaros®.

Partnering with Local Farmers

NutriLeads starts with fresh carrot pomace from local carrot juice producers in Germany. Our verifiable supply chains enable us to trace Benicaros from carrots, fields and farms throughout the production process. This helps ensure the highest product quality and consistency.

Proprietary Natural Extraction Process

Our Extraction Process is Chemical-Free

Carrots are washed, steam peeled and pressed in the juicing process. The residual carrot pulp is the source material for our proprietary natural extraction process that unlocks cRG-I from carrot cell walls. This step is essential, as trapped cRG-I is nearly inaccessible to the immune cells and gut bacteria.

Formats and Quality

Multiple Product Options

The extracted cRG-I fiber is concentrated in various levels and formats to meet diverse customer formulation needs. These include dry powders, liquids and organic.
