Why should we care?


Our current food production system is failing us, leading to nutrient deficiencies and poorer health as a result.

Discarded nutrients

Discarded nutrients

Our food production system discards many of the nutrient rich parts of plants (eg. hemicellulose fraction) we should be utilising.

Prebiotic deficiency

Prebiotic deficiency

Over 90% of adults lack over 50% of the soluble fibre or prebiotics they should be consuming in their diets on a daily basis.

Health problems

Health problems

Gut microbiome health is becoming poorer and poorer, and more and more people are suffering health issues as a result.

The Solution – NutraCycle


On-site upcycling and fortification through NutraCycle has the potential to improve the health of many plant-based products.

Fortify products

Fortify products

Allows all plant-based products to become functional products, and people to consume more prebiotics without even knowing it.

Maximise value

Maximise value

A service for food & beverage, ingredient, and feed companies to extract prebiotics, proteins, mono-sugars and other active ingredients.

Total solution

Total solution

A total solution to maximise the value of a side-stream hemicellulose fraction of any fruit, vegetable, cereal, legume, nut, berry or grass.

How the NutraCycle service works


The NutraCycle service is divided into three distinct phases which include a pre-study, joint development phase and service support. The first two phases have been designed to cost-effectively evaluate the potential of a side-stream product to be upcycled and used to fortify products or be sold off-site. The NutraCycle service focuses on AI assisted product driven process development based on Carbiotix IP and trade secret, aiming at supporting the R&D, innovations, product formulation, and business development functions of companies.

Computer graphs pre-study

Pre-study

The pre-study is divided into a no-cost laboratory development step and low-cost pilot scale verification step. The purpose of the pre-study is to develop a process that optimises the extraction of prebiotics and other active ingredients for a target application ie. to be used in either an existing or new product or sold offsite as an ingredient.

Joint development

Joint development

The joint development phase includes process design & financial modelling, product formulation & safety work, and technology & partner sourcing. At the completion of the joint development phase, a decision is taken whether to move forward with the construction of a NutraCycle process based upon a complete business case.

Service support

Service support

Once a NutraCycle process is operational, Carbiotix switches focus to supporting the operation of a site. Support includes efforts to continually optimise a process, assist with the formulation of new products, provide continued guidance with regards to scientific claims and regulatory issues, and leverage key partners to ensure a profitable service.
