As one of the lowest-calorie, most nutrient-rich foods available, vibrantly green wheatgrass has long been used to help cleanse the body of toxins and generate healthy energy. Research has shown this potent young plant to contain a 70% chlorophyll composition, making it exceptionally alkaline. Additionally, wheatgrass contains over 70 minerals and vitamins, hundreds of live enzymes, amino acids, antioxidants, and is composed of 87% protein by weight. Navitas Naturals Wheatgrass Powder is simply fresh, sweet wheatgrass juice that has been cold-temperature dried into a deeply concentrated powder -- ready to be mixed into beverages for an easy and revitalizing boost.
Source and Processing
Navitas NaturalsŐ wheatgrass is grown in greenhouses in New Hampshire, using the most state-of-the-art technology. The grass is first juiced, then immediately freeze-dried in an oxygen-free vacuum at temperatures of -85ˇF (this process specifically enables more enzymes to be active [living] than with other methods). One hundred pounds of grass juice condenses to four pounds of grass solids. This concentrate holds the live enzymes and nutrients in suspension until they are reactivated by adding water. Each bag contains 100% freeze-dried wheatgrass powder that is certified organic, kosher, gluten-free, vegan and raw.
