Barley Grass Powder
Latin name: Hordeum vulgare, Hordeum distichon
Barley Grass is one of the earliest cultivated foods on the planet, apparently eaten by gladiators for strength and stamina. A natural ‘superfood’, barley grass is a rich and balanced source of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes. It is high in the ‘blood of plants’ and nature’s detoxifier chlorophyll as well as important natural fibre and antioxidants. The nutrient dense barley shoots are gluten free, as all the gluten is confined to the barley grain. This makes barley grass a safe food supplement for gluten intolerant people.
