Wheat Grass Powder consists of the leaf portion of freshly harvested Wheat Leaf (Triticum aestivum) which has been cut, washed, sorted, dried and milled. This is a natural product, containing no additives or preservatives, and therefore may be subject to seasonal colour and flavour variations.
Barley Leaf (Hordeum Vulgare) and Wheat Leaf (Triticum Aestivum) has been a part of the human diet for thousands of years. Many ancient civilisations have recognized barley and wheat as important sources of food.
Recent research has found the young shoots of barley and wheat leaf to be rich in many essential vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants. They are grown on the rich, fertile young soils of the Canterbury Plains and in the shadow of the beautiful Southern Alps of New Zealand. Excellent soils, bright sunshine and careful, sustainable farming ensures high quality barley and wheat shoots are produced for harvesting.
Our barley leaf and wheat leaf is harvested at the optimum moment and processed rapidly after harvesting to ensure the natural goodness of the plant is captured. The end results are rich green powders, high in chlorophyll and carotenes and many of the essential vitamins and minerals required by the human body.
