Although mankind has used the grain of wheat (Triticum aestivum) for millennia, only in the early Twentieth Century did we discover the exceptional nutritional richness of its young, leafy growth (cotyledons).

Wheatgrass is high in vitamin A, C and folic acid, and a source of chlorophyll.

Suggested Use:
We recommend that you take 6 capsules daily, with water, mid-morning and/or mid-afternoon. We also recommend that you take a reduced dose (e.g. 3 capsules) during the first week to minimise detoxification symptoms. Store your Wheatgrass Capsules in a cool, dry place.

  • The Story:
    Wheatgrass is the leafy growth of the young wheat plant (Triticum aestivum). Although wheat has been used as a cereal crop for millennia, this part of the plant has only been consumed by humans since agricultural research into its effectiveness as a dietary supplement in the 1930s. It is packed with nutrients, including essential vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytonutrients and all the essential amino acids.

    Wheatgrass contains just 10-15 calories per teaspoon, with no fat or cholesterol. Wheatgrass protein contains 19 of the 22 amino acids, including all of the eight essential amino acids (those the body can't make for itself). Wheatgrass is also rich in vitamins, including A, B1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, B12, C, E and K. It also contains Chlorophyll.
    The Production:
    We source our Wheatgrass from an organic farm in Canterbury, New Zealand. It is harvested while the plant is still young, below 30 cm tall. Within 1-6 hours of harvest the Wheatgrass is transported to an organically certified dehydrating company, where the moisture content is reduced to approximately 4% by air dryers. The drying process takes between 20 and 25 minutes. Samples are taken hourly for daily quality assurance testing. Once dried, the powder is milled to particles, first of approximately 150 – 200 microns, then down to 50 microns. It is then packaged, awaiting transport to the UK. Organic production and processing helps retain the product’s vitamin B12 content, which is a byproduct of microorganisms on the plant rather than part of the growth structure.

    The powder is encapsulated in the UK by a leading GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice)-registered pharmaceutical manufacturer. GMP registration requires rigorous inspection by the MHRA (Medicine and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency), the government agency responsible for ensuring that medicines and medical devices work and are safe. Regular GMP audits enforce optimum quality standards in the encapsulation process. Rainforest Foods capsule casings are made from HPMC, a plant-based cellulose material approved for vegetarian and vegan use by the Vegetarian Society, and Halal and Kosher-certified. HPMC is about as biologically neutral a foodstuff as it is possible to find, and the only other ingredient in the casings is water. The capsules are 100% pure, using no fillers, binders or bulking agents. Each capsule contains 500mg of powder.
