Size Name:500mg Rainforest Foods Organic New Zealand Wheatgrass Capsules 140 x 500mgThis bottle contains 140 capsules. Each capsule contains 500mg of organic New Zealand Wheatgrass powder (Triticum aestivum).Product Information - What is Wheatgrass?Wheatgrass is the leafy growth of the young wheat plant (Triticum aestivum). Although wheat has been used as a cereal crop for millennia, the leafy part of the plant has only been consumed by humans since agricultural research into its effectiveness as a dietary supplement in the 1930s. It is packed with nutrients, including essential vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytonutrients and all the essential amino acids.A notable component of Wheatgrass is the green pigment chlorophyll, which allows plants to convert light into energy via photosynthesis. Wheatgrass contains Vitamins A, B2, B9, C and E and minerals which include Chromium, Iron, Manganese and Potassium.Production - How it's madeWe source our Wheatgrass from an organic farm in Canterbury, New Zealand. It is harvested while the plant is still young, below 30 cm tall. Within 1-6 hours of harvest the Wheatgrass is transported to an organically certified dehydrating company, where the moisture content is reduced to approximately 4% by air dryers. The drying process takes between 20 and 25 minutes. Once dried, the powder is milled, first to particles of approximately 150 - 200 microns, then 50 microns.The powder is encapsulated in the UK by a leading GMP (Good Marketing Practice)-registered pharmaceutical manufacturer. Rainforest Foods capsule shells are made from HPMC, a plant-based cellulose material, approved for vegetarian and vegan use by the Vegetarian Society, and Halal and Kosher- certified. The capsules are 100% pure, using no fillers, binders or bulking agents. Each capsule contains nothing but 500mg of NZ Wheatgrass powder.Related productsAlso available Rainforest Foods Organic New Zealand Barley Grass and Wheatgrass Capsules, Rainforest Foods Organic New Zealand Barley Grass Capsules, Rainforest Foods Organic New Zealand Barley Grass Powder, Rainforest Foods Organic New Zealand Wheatgrass PowderRainforest Foods - Our ValuesSince it began, Rainforest Foods' purpose has been to help people combine good nutrition with modern life.
