Do It Yourself
Wheatgrass seed can easily be grown at home and the juice extracted from the leaves. Numerous brands of fresh juice, wheatgrass powder and various other forms of wheatgrass are also available.
To gain maximum benefit from your homegrown plant, the leaves must be cut just above the seed mat that forms at the base of the plant. This must be done before the top of the leaf begins to divide – the so-called “jointing” phase” – i.e. after about 10-15 days.
Wheatgrass juice can be kept in the refrigerator for several days or more and still retain its bioactivity.
