Wheatgrass Triticum aestivum
The use of Wheatgrass to support health has been dated back 5000 years to the Ancient Egyptians, but it was only introduced to the European market in the 1930’s.
Wheatgrass is grown until jointing stage, at which point it is harvested to make the juice. By harvesting the grass before the plants energy goes into developing the seed head, the high nutritional content of the plant is preserved for us. The fresh grass is then cold-juiced and dried into a deliciously sweet and nutritious ready-to-mix powder.
Wheatgrass juice is packed full of chlorophyll and also contains a number of plant enzymes as well as the antioxidant ‘Super Oxide Dismutase’.
