Not all cereal grasses are created equal. Tray grown wheatgrass juice you find in most juice, smoothie or grocery stores is different from field grown dehydrated wheat grass. In fact, most field grown cereal grasses are different from Amazing Grass.
Amazing Grass is field grown through winter and harvested just once a year. Other grasses are grown in warm climates and cut 7 or more times a year, which results in decreased nutrients.
The use of wheat grass for health and healing can be traced to ancient Egypt, Western world consumption began in the 1930s when a chemist named Charles Schnabel experimented with wheatgrass on nursing dying chickens back to health. His success encouraged him to begin drying and powdering wheatgrass as a dietary supplement. Through this wheatgrass powder became a convenient way to consume the benefits of fresh wheatgrass. Charles became known as the father of wheat grass.

Why is Amazing Grass different?
Because it is grown in THE BEST soil for growing cereal grasses. Just as oranges grow best in Florida and California, cereal grasses grow best in the Midwest. Soil scientists have known for years that the central plains of the Midwest have some of the most fertile soils in the world. In fact, most of the production for wheat and other cereal grains come from the Midwest. Cereal Grasses planted in the fall and grown through the cold winter are nutritionally superior to crops grown elsewhere because the grass develops a huge root structure that acts as a sponge to absorb nutrients in the mineral-rich soil. Amazing Grass is certified organic and doesn’t use herbicides or pesticides. The belief of putting back more into the soil than we take out ensures the most nutrient-rich cereal grasses you can get. All grasses grow longer and cost more to produce, but the quality, superior nutrition and resulting health benefits are definitely worth it. Their proprietary harvesting procedures and safeguards ensures the lowest plate counts, coliforms, yeast and mold counts available with no irradiation.
