NutriLeads to present clinical research on BeniCaros prebiotic carrot fiber ingredient for immune health at SupplySide West

The company will share research showing that 300 mg of BeniCaros daily helped accelerate protective immune responsiveness and reduce airway symptom severity and duration, among other effects.

NutriLeads (Wageningen, The Netherlands) will present clinical research at the upcoming SupplySide West trade show, taking place October 31 to November 4, 2022, in Las Vegas, on its immune health ingredient BeniCaros. BeniCaros is a soluble prebiotic carrot fiber known as RG-I (rhamnogalacturonan-I), which the company says “trains the immune system to respond faster through a dual mode of action [that] prepares innate immune cells for a heightened state of readiness and selectively increases beneficial gut microorganisms and their metabolites that support immune responses.”

At SupplySide West, Ruud Albers, PhD, the founder and chief scientific officer of NutriLeads, will present clinical data showing that 300 mg of BeniCaros accelerated protective immune responsiveness, reduced airway symptom severity (by 20%-33%) and duration (by 25%-34%), and “minimized the impact on quality of life following a controlled challenge with a common cold virus.” He will present this data on November 2, 2022, at 11:00 am PT, at the SupplySide West Supplier Presentation Theater (Booth 3077).

At its booth at the show (Booth 3876), NutriLeads will provide samples of BeniCaros in gummy products. BeniCaros is sustainably sourced from upcycled carrot pomace.
