Description of Barley Grass Bulk Powder 9 oz from Nature's Way
Barley Grass Bulk Powder
Natural Chlorophyll Source
Nature's Way grows its Barley Grass only on farms that use no chemical sprays or pesticides. Our Barley Grass is 100% whole leaf powder. We maintain the natural plant fiber and other benefits of the whole plant. On an equal weight basis, our Barley Grass has more fiber content than bran. Some products use only the dried juice of the Barley Grass. These products typically dilute the product with lactose, brown rice or arrowroot as a carrier of drying agents. We give you the whole plant. Nothing more, and nothing less.
Barley Grass (Hordeum vulgare) was probably the first cereal grain to be cultivated by man. The cultivation of Barley was well advanced when writing was developed, and written crop reports have been found in Egypt that date back to 2440 B.C. Barley was a sacred grain to the Egyptians and Greeks, a gift from their Gods. The Chinese were cultivating Barley in 2,000 B.C. Barley was one of the first crops planted in the colony of Virginia in 1611. When harvested as a young grass before the ovule begins to move up and the grain to develop, Barley Grass has a nutritional profile more like that of a green leafy vegetable than that of a grain.
Nature's Way Barley Grass is grown in the winter and early spring on the Midwestern plains. Maturing slowly and tempered by the weather, natural Barley Grass has a greater nutritional value and a lower sugar content than Wheat Grass or Barley Grass sprouted indoors in a warm environment.
Immediately after harvest, Nature's Way Barley Grass is dried by a special process that uses dehumidified air rather than heat to remove the moisture. This process retains twice as much chlorophyll as conventionally-dried products.
