What is Wheatgrass?
Wheatgrass is a food prepared from the cotyledons of the common wheat plant, Triticum aestivum (subspecies of the family Poaceae). It is sold either as a juice or powder concentrate.
Wheatgrass differs from wheat malt in that it is served freeze-dried or fresh, while wheat malt is convectively dried.
Wheatgrass is allowed to grow longer than malt. Like most plants, it contains chlorophyll, amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and enzymes.
The health benefits of wheatgrass range from providing supplemental nutrition to having unique curative properties
