What is it

Australian Organic BARLEYGRASS is NOT juiced and it has NO additives. Juicing eliminates the natural plant fibre and requires chemical additives to prevent deterioration and facilitate the drying process.

What are its health benefits

The rich green goodness of young barleygrass leaf has long been recognised for its unique nutritional benefits. Research over the past 55 years has confirmed the value of cereal leaf as a complete food, available in a natural synergistic form that makes it an ideal dietary supplement for health and energy.

The 100% Australian Organic BARLEYGRASS is made entirely from leaf harvested when the barley plant is still at its grass-like growth stage, prior to stem elongation and subsequent seed head formation. At this stage the plants nutritional value reaches a peak for important dietary components such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, chlorophyll and carotenes.

A strict harvesting schedule, fast, hygienic handling of the crop, a specially developed low temperature drying process and innovative milling technology ensures that the Australian Organic BARLEYGRASS retains the goodness and quality of the young fresh leaf.

Australian Organic BARLEYGRASS contains whole, young barleygrass leaf. It is NOT juiced and it has NO additives. Juicing eliminates the natural plant fibre and requires chemical additives to prevent deterioration and facilitate the drying process.

Australian Organic BARLEYGRASS has a unique smooth flavour. Rich in chlorophyll known for its ability to aid digestion and has a deodorising effect on the body.

A good source of vitamin E, an anti-oxidant to provide protection for cells against free radical damage, it is particularly important in protecting fats, cell membranes, DNA and enzymes against damage endured by today’s hectic lifestyles. Containing over 90 minerals vital for life, it is high in calcium for healthy bones and teeth, and rich in magnesium, potassium, manganese and phosphorus for a healthy heart, muscles, nervous system and blood vessels. Iron is also essential to combat fatigue and infection. Barleygrass leaf powder has a greater percentage of protein than eggs.

How and where is it grown

CLEAN GREEN GROWING ENVIRONMENT

Australian Organic BARLEYGRASS is grown in mineral-rich, certified organic soil on the banks of the Murray River in Northern Victoria.

The clean, green farms where Australian Organic BARLEYGRASS is grown are certified organic by The National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia (NASAA).

SUPERIOR DRYING & MILLING TECHNOLOGIES

Australian Organic BARLEYGRASS is dried using special Low Temperature Drying Technology, then milled with an advanced Fine-Pin Milling System to produce a smaller particle size to preserve potency and increase nutrient bioavailability – NO 'flash-air drying’ at high temperatures is used in the production of Australian Organic BARLEYGRASS.

PACKED FOR FRESHNESS AND POTENCY

Unlike other Barleygrass products on the market, we have packed  Australian Organic BARLEYGRASS in our unique protective LOCTEC(TM) packaging system, eliminating oxygen from the container right up until the day you open it. LOCTEC uses recyclable glass and steel to protect the full benefits of this remarkable food.

Interesting Facts

What is the difference between 100% Australian Organic Barleygrass and imported Barleygrass Juice Powders.

These Barleygrass Juice Powder products can contain up to 25% maltodextrin. This is a combination of maltose and dextrin, both simple sugars.

The Australian and New Zealand food authority classifies maltodextrin as sugar.

The imported Barleygrass Juice Powder products contain approximately identical amounts of crude fibre as the 100% Australian Organic Barleygrass. However, the fibre in the Juice Powder products has been found to be from the cooked brown rice which has been added and does not contain all the nutrients that the whole, young leaf grasses contain in the comparable volume of fibre found within the young leaf shoots.
