Company Mission: The Power Inside

Bluebonnet was honored 13 times last year during its Silver Anniversary with industry and consumer awards including best full supplement line and six Vitamin Retailer awards (see Bluebonnetnutrition.com for details). The company has earned these accolades by creating scientifically supported supplements as close to nature as possible with an eye on quality and transparency since its inception. As a leader in the manufacturing of premium dietary supplements with a state-of-the-art, kosher-certified, GMP (good manufacturing practice)-compliant facility allowing the company to control its quality from start to finish, Bluebonnet Nutrition has spared no expense in its quest to be the most trusted, award-winning supplement brand on the market. The company has instituted more rigorous quality control measures like Non-GMO Project and their own internal non-GMO (genetically modified organism) verification program, as well as securing third-party certifications, such as the coveted GMP Registration from NSF, the world’s leading public health and safety organization. This prestigious certification—developed in accordance with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)—verifies that Bluebonnet has the proper manufacturing procedures, testing methods, equipment, facilities, and controls in place for exceeding even the most rigorous quality standards for producing natural nutritional supplements.

Bluebonnet has also developed more farm-to-table, whole food and whole food-based products—with sustainable USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture) Organic/non-GMO ingredients—than ever. Many are allergen-free and KOF-K kosher certified. The company’s facility has been certified to produce and handle USDA Organic products. To grant this certification, the Texas Department of Agriculture traces the ingredients in every Bluebonnet supplement labeled USDA Organic back to its farm of origin, verifying that it complies with federal organic production and handling regulations established by the USDA National Organic Program (NOP). For example, no synthetic chemicals (i.e., fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, or hormones), irradiation or genetically modified seeds can be used.

Bluebonnet will continue to strive for excellence and transparency at every level by supporting the clean and wholesome principles upon which this industry was founded, as well as supporting natural food retailers with an award winning line they can trust to be their go-to supplement brand.

Key Brand Attributes

Demonstrating quality through coveted seals to ensure not just the quality of every ingredient, but how those ingredients are sourced is the Bluebonnet difference. For example, the company’s whey protein isolate and micellar casein are from dairy farms that have been audited through an animal welfare program putting the safety and wellbeing of the cows first. This guarantees no animal cruelty and access to pure pastures devoid of antibiotics and growth hormone (rBGH) with most of the cow’s diet coming from grass. So, in addition to the USDA Organic and KOF-K kosher-certified seals, look for the following symbols of quality and purity on Bluebonnet labels:

• Made with Non-GMO Ingredients

• NSF Certified for Sport

• Vegan

• Third-party Tested Fish Oils

• Sustainably Harvested Plants and Fish

• Milk-free

• 99 percent Lactose-free

• Soy- or Gluten-free

• No Sugar Added
