Description

Organic Barley Grass Powder is rich in chlorophyll.

Organic Barley Grass Powder is ground down from the fresh young shoots which sprout up on the barley plant.  These barley shoots have a long history and their use traces back to before 5000 BC.  This bright green powder is rich in a range of essential nutrients and packed with powerful antioxidants.  It is high in Iron and Calcium which makes it a great choice for vegetarian and vegan diets.

The young barley grass is harvested by hand before being cleaned and sorted.  The grass is then fast-dried and ground into a fine green powder.  This method preserves the nutrients and flavour of the nutrient rich shoots and results in a high grade organic powder rich in antioxidants.

Growing and juicing your own barley grass is time-consuming and messy which not many of us can manage in our busy schedules.  This organic barley grass powder is easy to mix into water or juice for a quick nutritional fix.   Because barley grass is such a powerful powder it is particularly popular in detox protocols and cleansing programmes.

Daily Serving: A maximum allowance of 8 grams daily.   Barley grass is nutritionally rich therefore a gradual intake can allow the body to adjust to it.  It is recommended to start with ½ teaspoon daily up to a maximum of 4 teaspoons.

If you love green powders then why not try our organic wheat grass powder.
