The NUTRILITE Story

BrandZone_Nutrilite_Tab_1_2.png

Carl F. Rehnborg, the founder of NUTRILITE, was one of those rare individuals who combined curiosity and imagination, with innovation as the result.

Based on his observation on the effects inadequate diet had on people around him while he was in China, Carl started experimenting by extracting and concentrating nutrients from different plant sources. In 1934, he originated the concept of including whole plant concentrates or phytonutrients in his formula for the first multivitamin and multimineral product sold in North America.

Today, he is recognised as a pioneer in the field of phytonutrient, which were many years ahead of his time.

Our Certified Organic Farms

Certified Organic Farm

NUTRILITE is the only global vitamin and dietary supplement brand to grow, harvest, and process plants on our own certified organic farms*.

Hundreds of fruits and vegetables are grown the way nature intended on our 6,400 acres of farmland spread out across the world – more than any supplement company in the world, using only sustainable, non-synthetic, and pesticide-free methods.

Fruits and vegetables are harvested while at the peak of potency, then dehydrated and processed immediately to capture the valuable nutrients in them.

 

TROUT LAKE FARM
Washington State, USA
The Trout Lake Farm in Washington State, USA is the largest certified organic herb farm in North America. More than 70 botanicals and 3 million pounds of NUTRILITE herbs are grown on these 700 acres (283 hectares) each year.

Rancho El Petacal  

RANCHO EL PETACAL
Jalisco, Mexico
Spanning 1,400 acres (566 hectares), Rancho El Petacal harvests nutrient-rich citrus plants such as lemons, red grapefruit, and mandarin oranges, as well as watercress, parsley, alfalfa, spinach, kale and basil.

 

FAZENDA NUTRIORGANICA
Ubajara, Brazil
The Fazenda Nutriorganica is the largest NUTRILITE farm, with 4,100 acres (1,660 hectares) of farmland where passion fruit, pineapple, guava, and tropical herbs are grown, as well as 100% of the acerola cherries that go into NUTRILITE products.

Nutrilite Agricultural Research Farm  

NUTRILITE AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH FARM
California, USA
Located on a prehistoric lake bed, the NUTRILITE Agricultural Research Farm in Buena Park, California spans 111 acres (45 hectares) and is the main location where our farm researchers identify nutrients and active ingredients for new NUTRILITE products while working to improve existing ones.

 

 
 

DID YOU KNOW?

Almost all of the plant concentrates used in NUTRILITE products are grown on our NUTRILITE farms.

Those that have not been grown on our organic farms must meet strict quality standards as established by NUTRILITE agricultural scientists under the NutriCert programme such as the NUTRILITE philosophy of sustainable farming and socially responsible business practices. This ensures that only the best ingredients go into every NUTRILITE product.

Sustainable Farming Practices

All NUTRILITE farms adhere to strict guidelines that emphasise responsible management of natural resources and respect for the processes of nature. At NUTRILITE, “grown the way nature intended” is more than just a catchphrase – it is a way of farming, and a way of life.


1. ENHANCING SOIL WITH NITROGEN
Leguminous cover crops are planted to fix soil with the nitrogen required for plant growth.

 

2. PLOUGHING SOIL WITH EARTHWORMS
Organic nutrients are added into the soil. When earthworms burrow through the soil, plant roots can grow more extensively.

 

3. COVERING WITH PLASTIC SHEETS
The leguminous plants are covered with plastic sheets. Once they wither under the sunlight, they are used as compost.

 

4. GROWING THE RAW INGREDIENT PLANTS
Once the nutrient-rich soil is ready, raw ingredient plants are grown. Underground water is used for irrigation.

 

5. PROTECTING CROPS NATURALLY
The larvae of ladybugs and mayflies, as well as eagles and owls help protect the crops from insects, birds and other pests.

 

6. HARVESTING AT PEAK STAGE
The crops are harvested at their peak of potency. Only parts with the most nutritional value are collected.

 

7. CLEARING FIELDS USING SHEEP
Flocks of sheep are herded to graze the fields of stubble after the crops have been harvested.

 

8. ALLOWING FOR FALLOW TIME
After 3-4 years of planting and harvesting, the field is left for a period of time to allow the soil to replenish its fertility naturally.



From Seed to Supplement

The key to retaining the wonders of the raw fruits and vegetables is to keep all the nutrients in the plant ingredients intact. Methods such as spray drying and blending in a V-shaped tumbler ensure that nutrients are not lost to excessive heat or agitation.


1. DEHYDRATION
Large dryers are used to dehydrate the plant ingredients collected, until they are in the form of tea leaves.

 

2. MILLING
Plants are milled so the nutrients are more easily extracted.

 

3. EXTRACTION / SEPARATION
Vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and other useful components are extracted.

 

4. CONCENTRATION
Nutrients and useful components are boiled at a low boiling point to avoid jeopardising the nutritional content.

 

5. SPRAY DRY
The concentrated solution is sprayed onto a hot plate, where water is evaporated in a second while nutrients are kept intact.

 

6. CONCENTRATE BLENDING
Various nutrients (plant extracts) are blended according to specific characteristics or the nature of different food supplements.

 

7. KEY CONCENTRATE
A V-shaped tumbler mixer is used to blend a big amount of plant ingredients at a single time, to produce blended extracts that are high in purity.

 

8. FINISHED PRODUCTS
Different products are shaped and modelled according to their sizes, textures, and viscosity.
