Wheatgrass is the leafy growth of the young Wheat plant (Triticum aestivum). Although Wheat has been used as a cereal crop for millenia, Wheatgrass has only been consumed by humans since agricultural research into its effectiveness as a dietary supplement in the 1930s. Rainforest Foods Wheatgrass is grown on a farm in Canterbury, New Zealand, which has been organically certified for over 25 years. The Wheatgrass is harvested while the plant is still young - below 30cm tall. It is then dried and milled into a fine powder within 1-6 hours of harvest. The entire process is organically certified, and allows a high proportion of the plant's original nutritional value to be retained. Wheatgrass is high in Vitamin A, C and Folic acid, and a source of Chlorophyll.
