Wheatgrass is young grass grown from the seeds of the common wheat plant, Triticum aestivum. Harvested after 10 to 14 days, it is commonly consumed either as freshly-squeezed juice or in powder form. Wheatgrass is loaded with chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals and other plant compounds which are linked to possible health benefits. While ancient civilizations were already aware of the health-promoting benefits of Wheatgrass, its popularity as a nutritional supplement has grown in recent decades.
Wheatgrass comes from sprouted wheat seeds which can be grown outdoors or indoors on trays. After 10 to 14 days, the cotyledon of the seeds have developed into seedlings and the grassy part of the young plant is ready to be harvested, having reached the jointing stage. At this point the nutritional value of the young plant is at its highest level. Wheatgrass is commonly juiced fresh or dried and made into a convenient-to-use fine powder.
