NutriLeads Names Pathway International as Distributor for its Immune-support Ingredient BeniCaros in Australia and New Zealand
October 14, 2022 – NutriLeads BV today announced the appointment of Pathway International Pty Ltd as its representative in the Australian and New Zealand markets for functional food, beverage and supplement ingredients. NutriLeads is the manufacturer of award-winning BeniCaros®, a soluble prebiotic carrot fiber that trains the immune system to respond faster.
Scientifically known as RG-I (Rhamnogalacturonan-I), BeniCaros works 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.
A clinical study utilizing a controlled challenge with a common cold virus found that just 300 mgs. of BeniCaros daily accelerated protective immune responsiveness, reduced airway symptom severity (20-33%) and duration (25-43%) and minimized the impact on quality of life.
“Pathway International’s experience in the sale of branded, specialized ingredients and its extensive relationships with major food, beverage and supplement manufacturers throughout the region make it an excellent partner for NutriLeads,” said Joana Carneiro, NutriLeads Chief Executive Officer.
“BeniCaros offers multifunctional immune and gut health benefits and it’s backed by strong science,” said Wayne Coote, Managing Director, Pathway International. “We believe this new relationship will make it easier for manufacturers to create new products with this innovative immune health ingredient.”
