Our organic Barleygrass powder is made by growing fresh grass from the barley grain, then drying out the fresh young leaf and grinding it down to a fine powder. There is no trace of the gluten from the grain in the sprout, so it is not a problem for people who are intolerant to grains.
Barleygrass has a pleasant almost sweet taste which is not overpowering, and complements vegetable dishes well.
The use of barley, for food and nutritional purposes, dates back to ancient times and was eaten by the Roman gladiators. In the West, it was first known for the barley grain it produces.
Please note this barleygrass powder is heated during drying at approx 85 deg, so therefore is not considered to be raw.

Barleygrass has a pleasant, slightly sweet, almost apple-like flavour. It is very refreshing and goes well with lemons. Put a spoon in a glass of lemon water and drink it down for a cleansing drink, or stir a spoonful into your hummus or vegetable pate.
