KEEP YOUR STANDARDS HIGH
There is nothing wrong with wanting the best for yourself. When it comes to good health, high expectations aren’t just desirable, they’re vital. Bluebonnet thinks you should require more from your nutritional supplements. We certainly do.
When Bluebonnet was established in 1991, we saw an opportunity to introduce a new level of quality assurance to the natural products industry. We built our own 100,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing and distribution facility with earth-friendly, pharmaceutical-grade systems. We also instituted in-house analytical laboratories with the industry’s most technologically advanced testing processes and equipment, which are still unrivaled in our industry today.
Before there were Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) for dietary supplements, Bluebonnet’s production process followed pharmaceutical GMPs, exceeding the rigorous model established by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Pharmacopoeia. Today, Bluebonnet has earned GMP Registration from NSF International, the world’s leading public health and safety organization. This prestigious certification – developed in accordance with the FDA – verifies that Bluebonnet Nutrition has the proper manufacturing procedures, testing methods, equipment, facilities, and controls in place for meeting or exceeding the most rigorous quality standards for producing natural nutritional supplements.
Bluebonnet has also been certified to produce and handle USDA Organic
products. To grant this certification, the Texas Department of Agriculture traces every ingredient 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). Certified organic ingredients must be produced through agricultural methods that cycle resources, promote ecological balance and conserve biodiversity.
No synthetic chemicals – fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides,
seeds can be used. In fact, a farm must meet these rigorous antibiotics,
hormones, etc. – irradiation, or genetically modified standards for a minimum
of five years before its ingredients can be certified organic. In addition,
our manufacturing facility has been kosher certified by KOF-K Supervision,
one of the world’s most respected kosher certification agencies,
guaranteeing the ingredients in every kosher-certified Bluebonnet
supplement have been traced to their manufacturing origin with strict
rules imposed on hygienic processes.*
By the time a Bluebonnet bottle appears on your local natural food store shelf, the ingredients inside have undergone rigorous identification and purity testing. We have verified they are free of microbes, pollutants, added hormones and antibiotics, pesticides and heavy metals. And we try to make sure our ingredients don’t include allergens like milk, gluten and soy at every turn. Our supplements have also been subjected to stringent examinations for potency, uniformity, hardness, disintegration and dissolution. That’s inner quality you won’t find in most nutritional supplements.
