Product of the Week: Wheat Grass
Before I get into the product side of this post, lets first talk about wheat grass, and why you might be interested in it.
Now, wheat grass is simply a very young wheat plant - nothing more than that! The interest in its health properties began way back in the 1930's. An agricultural chemist used fresh cut grass in an attempt to nurse some extremely sick hens back to health. To his surprise, and considerable delight, the hens not only recovered but ended up popping out eggs more quickly than those that were in perfect health already.
He reproduced the experiment the following year with the same happy results. And so the wheat grass era was born.
There are now several companies that cultivate and sell wheat grass in a variety of forms. You can find it dried, juiced, juiced and then dried... etc...
The product that is going to be featured today, however, comes from a family company that seems to focus very intensively on the quality of their product.
They sell their juice vacuum packed and frozen (and ship it super quick) to ensure that it is fresh when you drink it.
Their website contains a great deal more information about wheat grass, and about their product.
If you have used it before, please leave a comment and let everyone know what you thought of it!
