The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Bluebonnet's 100% Natural Dual-Action Protein is sourced from grass-fed cows that are not treated with antibiotics and recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH), also known as bovine somatotropin (BST)†. Additionally, this product provides a dynamic blend of whey protein isolate and micellar casein that works throughout your workout and during the recovery phase at night. Whey protein isolate has the highest biological value (BV) of any protein on the market, which refers to a protein that has all the necessary essential amino acids for protein biosynthesis and is fast-acting to support amino acid replenishment required during and after strenuous activities. Plus, this revolutionary protein formula includes extended-action micellar casein that works well beyond strenuous activities to continually rebuild broken down muscle. While both whey protein isolate and micellar casein are rich sources of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) and glutamic acid, whey protein isolate alone provides the naturally occurring immunoglobulins that help support the immune system, which is transiently depressed during strenuous activity.
Unlike the common practice of using heat-processed whey protein isolate and micellar casein that can denature (render useless) the protein and immunoglobulins, Bluebonnet employs a special low-temperature, microfiltration process that removes excess fat while leaving the protein undenatured and immunoglobulins intact.
For athletes, sports enthusiasts, weekend warriors and active individuals, take Bluebonnet's 100% Natural Dual-Action Protein with:
- Bluebonnet's BCAAs Vcaps - for building and repairing muscle.
- Bluebonnet's GliSODin Vegetarian SOD Vcaps - for reducing oxidative stress.
- Bluebonnet's L-Glutamine Powder - for building lean muscle.
- Bluebonnet's Nucleotide Complex 500 mg Vcaps - for producing energy and repairing muscle.

iHerb Customer Reviews
The research I've done on whey suggests to look for very low fat, cholesterol, and carbs re: how it was processed. This stuff has one of the best profiles around, and it is one of the few products from grass-fed cows. The verdict seems to be out as to whether casein is really health-supporting, but I love the taste of this stuff, and it does carry me further into the day that whey alone. I am not usually a sweets fiend, but I like the taste of this one better than the plain. I mix it in my rockin' smoothies in the a.m. Now I just wish they would get rid of the lecithin, as some other companies have started doing.
great stuff with high quality ingredients
