Rainforest Foods Wheatgrass Powder New Zealand (200g) Wheatgrass is one of the most effective natural health supplements available, because it heals, alkalises, detoxifies and energises our bodies. It is packed full of nutrients, including essential vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytonutrients and all essential amino acids. It also contains chlorophyll, which is a potent antioxidant and acts as a natural detoxifying agent, helping purify the blood and regenerate the liver. PRODUCTIONWe source our wheatgrass from an organic farm in Canterbury, New Zealand. It is harvested while the plant is still young, i.e. 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%. This is accomplished through the use of hot air dryers. The drying process takes between 20 and 25 minutes. Samples are taken hourly for daily quality assurance testing. Once dried, the powder is milled, to particles first of approximately 150 – 200 microns, then 50 microns. It is then packaged. ORGANIC CERTIFICATIONThis wheatgrass is organically certified by Biogro in New Zealand and by the Soil Association in the UK. This process involves several stages, intended to guarantee an organic product. The farm is inspected annually to ensure it meets all the organic growing requirements. In addition, all processors of the wheatgrass.
All Rainforest Foods products are certified as suitable for vegan use by The Vegan Society.
