As fresh wheatgrass is a complete food for many animals, it is no surprise that is packed full of essential nutrients. These include proteins in the form of amino acids, a vast array of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and phytonutrients, ideal for those seeking maximum cell vitality, which is a foundation for good health. A shot of wheatgrass juice is like a single complete supplement. It is a source of B vitamins, including vitamin B12, folic acid, and also vitamins A, C, E. Wheatgrass also contains minerals: calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc and selenium.
All of our fresh organic wheatgrass is grown outside during the summer months but in cold weather we bring it in and it grows in our naturally sky-lit growing room. It is planted and watered by hand so that every tray receives the individual attention that it deserves. Our wheatgrass is grown using organic spelt grain, an ancient variety of wheat. Spelt is a heritage grain and we have found it produces a stronger, healthier and juicier grass. Organic spelt grain is more expensive than standard organic wheat grain but we feel it's worth it! Many of our customers are health practitioners who recommend our wheatgrass to their clients and new customers report that they find the taste much more palatable than the wheatgrass juice they have tried in the past.
We estimate that one punnet would give 1-2 shots, it all depend on how long / old it is when cut / when it has been watered before juicing as well as what type of juicer is used to juice it.
