Wheatgrass is grown from wheat berries which are the wheat kernels that remain when the chaf and straw are removed. It is a high source of vitamins A and C, minerals and B vitamins. The juice is high in chlorophyll and has a number of health related benefits including liver purification and aiding digestion.
The wheatgrass juicers you see in health foods stores are electric and can cost over $250.00. We prefer a hand operated juicer since it removes more liquid than the electric models. Ours comes from the Czech Republic, weighs 8 lbs and is heavily tin plated cast iron (no aluminum) for years of trouble free operation. It comes with two stainless steel screens - one for wheatgrass and one for soft fruits, berries and leafy vegetables. The juicer has a cushioning rubber pad on the support foot of the juicer which prevents marring the counter or table surface to which it is clamped. The juicer is easy to use and easy to clean.
In addition to this exceptional juicer, we include one pound of organically grown hard northern red wheatberries and instructions on how to sprout and grow your own wheatgrass. Wheatgrass can be grown indoors if you have a window that gets daily sun. Those with access to a quality health foods store can even purchase flats of wheatgrass ready for juicing. This is considerably more convenient and cheaper than having the store do the juicing for you. Of course the most economical method is to grow your own wheatgrass; it's also fun and a great instructional aid for children. You might also wish to purchase a great book on wheatgrass from the woman who introduced wheatgrass juice to America over 30 years ago.
