What is it

There is a BIG difference between getting essential nutrients from synthetic vitamin supplements and getting them from organic superfoods such as Wheatgrass.

Wheatgrass contains a broad spectrum of organic nutrients together with many other nutritional co-factors and synergistic compounds, all naturally present, to enhance nutrient bioavailability without leaving the residues and imbalances left behind from the partial utilisation of synthetic compounds.

The shoots of young Wheatgrass are able to draw nutrients from the soil very effectively and when at their nutritional peak contain most of the nutrients required for human life.  protein. These nutrients, in their natural wholefood form, are far better assimilated humans than their synthetic analogues.

Australian Organic WHEATGRASS 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 wheatgrass leaf has long been recognised for its unique nutritional benefits. Extensive research over the past 50 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 WHEATGRASS is made entirely from leaf harvested when the wheat 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 WHEATGRASS retains the goodness and quality of the young fresh leaf.

Australian Organic WHEATGRASS contains whole, young wheatgrass 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 WHEATGRASS 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. Wheatgrass leaf powder has a greater percentage of protein than eggs.

How and where is it grown

CLEAN GREEN GROWING ENVIRONMENT

Australian Organic WHEATGRASS 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 WHEATGRASS is grown are certified organic by The National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia (NASAA).

SUPERIOR DRYING & MILLING TECHNOLOGIES

Australian Organic WHEATGRASS 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 WHEATGRASS.

PACKED FOR FRESHNESS AND POTENCY

Unlike other Wheatgrass products on the market, we have packed Australian Organic WHEATGRASS 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 Wheatgrass and imported Wheatgrass Juice Powders.

These Wheatgrass 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 Wheatgrass Juice Powder products contain approximately identical amounts of crude fibre as the 100% Australian Organic Wheatgrass. 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.
