RG-I Platform

Proprietary platform

With our unique health ingredients platform, we are harnessing the health-giving power of plant-derived RG-I (rhamnogalacturonan-I) compounds.

RG-I compounds are complex dietary fibres with distinct qualities that enable them to interact with and benefit the gut ecosystem, specifically the gut microbes (microbiota), and the immune system.

RG-I is one of the building blocks found in the cell walls of various crops. We have developed proprietary techniques and processes to extract these natural plant compounds and develop evidence-based health ingredients.

We take all our health ingredients through clinical trials to prove their positive effect on human health and gain regulatory approval for market access.

Following development and manufacture, we partner with food, beverage and food supplement companies to incorporate our health ingredients into their products and bring the benefits to consumers.

All our ingredients are fully protected by a broad intellectual property portfolio of patents.


NutriLeads is dedicated to the continued exploration of the unique health benefits of BeniCaros. You can read more about our scientific studies and publications here.



BeniCaros® is a first-of-its-kind food, beverage and supplement ingredient that delivers multiple immune health benefits. It is a bioactive polysaccharide (fiber) known as cRG-I (rhamnogalacturonan-I) derived from upcycled carrot pomace.

BeniCaros® is clinically proven to train the immune system to respond more efficiently when challenged. It has a unique dual mode of action that both prepares innate immune cells and stimulates beneficial gut microorganisms that support immune response.

BeniCaros® has been taken through rigorous pre-clinical and clinical studies to demonstrate its safety and positive effect on human health and to gain regulatory approval for market access.

The ingredient was first launched in the US at the end of 2021 and we have been expanding our markets and partners base since then.

BeniCaros® has been recognized as an innovative and high-quality health ingredient – winning several awards from prestigious organizations.

How to use our ingredients

There are a large range of potential applications for ingredients based on our RG-I technology platform:


A product taken orally that contains one or more ingredients that are intended to supplement your diet and are not considered food.

Dietary supplements are intended to be ingested in the form of a tablet, capsule, powder, softgel, gelcap, gummies, or liquid droplet.

Functional foods

Everyday foods and beverages that provide a health benefit beyond basic nutrition.

Functional foods contain added ingredients which provide additional functions to promote health or prevent disease. They tend to be similar in appearance to conventional foods and consumed as part of a regular diet.
Supply Chain

Plant-based Ingredients

We have succeeded in extracting RG-I from affordable crops, and thereby developing plant-based ingredients with clinically proven health benefits.

For example, BeniCaros®, our most advanced health ingredient, which is based on carrot RG-I, is upcycled from carrot pomace, a by-product of carrot juice production.
