Our wheatgrass powder is a nutrient-rich formula, sustainably cultivated from the young, budding leaves of the wheat plant, Triticum aestivum. After harvesting and drying, the leaves are ground into a fine powder. Low temperatures are used to best preserve the diverse nutrient profile.

What is wheatgrass powder?

Wheatgrass is an explosive superfood with a range of healthful compounds. It is commonly enjoyed as fresh juice, in smoothies, or as a shot. However, we have formulated a brand-new, organic, whole-leaf powder. By condensing the wheatgrass leaves into a concentrated powder, we have created a richer source of nutrients. This eliminates the work of growing the plant and juicing every morning while providing all the same benefits.

Key health aspects of wheatgrass powder

Our 100% organic wheatgrass is a naturally-rich source of several essential nutrients such as vitamin C, iron as well as fibre. These can give you a great morning kick and are some of the fantastic reasons why our wheatgrass powder is highly popular. 

Vitamin C

Just one small teaspoon of our wholesome wheatgrass powder will provide more than twice your daily vitamin C needs, an essential water-soluble vitamin that acts an antioxidant in the body. Vitamin C may also help to reduce the duration of colds (Source: Examine.com). And while it may not reduce the frequency of colds among the general population, it has may provide protective effects in athletes (Source: Examine.com).  

Iron

3Wheatgrass is also a natural source of iron, a crucial mineral that many people do not get enough of. Iron is a mineral that is incorporated into hemoglobin, the oxygen-transport cells of our body. It is essential for the efficient delivery of oxygen to all tissues and thus, energy production.

Insoluble fibre

Our organic wheatgrass powder is a rich source of fibre, and more specifically, insoluble fibre. Juicing is typically used to remove the insoluble fibre from the leaves during the processing of most green powders. However, this step is excluded from the process here. We cannot digest this form of fibre, and so it can contribute to improved digestion, reduced cholesterol, and suppression of hunger (JAND.org).  

Active enzymes

Although research is preliminary, wheatgrass is believed to contain a diverse range of active enzymes with potent antioxidant capabilities in the body. In particular, superoxide dismutase and cytochrome oxidase, are known for their scavenging ability (Source: Fazos). What does this mean?  

At all times, we have harmful molecules called free radicals building up in our bodies. However, these are ‘scavenged’ by antioxidative phytonutrients that we consume through a balanced diet. Think of scavenging as chemically defusing.  

Chlorophyll

Another reason for the exceptional popularity of wheatgrass is the chlorophyll content of the superfood. One study reported that it contained more than 9 times more than broccoli! (Source: SAJEB 

Chlorophyll is a pigment that is only found in plants and is required to produce nutrients through photosynthesis. While humans cannot use it for the same reasons, chlorophyll may also help to detoxify harmful substances in the body. It is also believed to promote skin repair, blood sugar control, and oxygen delivery.
