Wheatgrass is the young grass sprouted from wheat seeds. The vivid green blades of grass are long, thin and delicate. Wheatgrass is naturally sweet with an earthy grass like flavor that is amplified significantly when juiced. Wheatgrass should be harvested when between seven and eleven inches in length as this is when the grass is at its nutritional peak.
A potent source of nutrients, wheatgrass contains a wide range of vitamins and minerals including vitamins A, B, C and E as well as amino acids and enzymes. Wheatgrass also contains upwards of 70% of the natural plant pigment chlorophyll which studies have shown may help prevent certain cancers.
Wheatgrass is most commonly served juiced as this makes it easier to digest and improves absorption of the grasses vitamins and minerals. It can be enjoyed on its own as a shot, oftentimes paired with a wedge of citrus. It can also be combined with other fruit and vegetable juices such as carrot and/or apple juice for better palatability and flavor. Note: Never drink more than two ounces of wheatgrass juice at one time.
