Wheatgrass is an excellent source of many different vitamins and minerals. It is especially high in vitamins A, C and E, as well as iron, magnesium, calcium and amino acids. Of its 17 amino acids, eight are considered essential, meaning your body cannot produce them and you must obtain them from food sources. Like all green plants, wheatgrass also consists of chlorophyll, a type of green plant pigment associated with many health benefits. It also contains several important antioxidants, including glutathione and vitamins C and E. Antioxidants are compounds that fight free radicals to prevent cell damage and reduce oxidative stress.
Growing Instructions: Sprouting is as easy as 1 - 2 - 3.
1. Place wheat berries in a quart-size sprouting jar or other sprouting container.
2. Fill with water, cover with a sprouting screen or mesh sprouting lid. Soak for at least 6 hours or overnight.
3. Drain all water off the wheat berries. Invert the jar over a bowl at an angle so that the wheat berries will drain and still allow air to circulate. After 8-12 hours of draining, rinse and drain again. Repeat rinsing and draining 2-3 times daily. Tiny sprouts should begin to form in 2-3 days and should be ready for juicing at 7-10 days. At this point, sprouting is complete. Drain well before use or storage.
