The multiple benefits of wheat grass are obtained in a simple and concentrated way through the juice, since 30 ml of wheat grass just liquefied contain approximately the same nutritional value as a kilo of green leafy vegetables. And just a small tablespoon of powdered wheat grass (3.5 g) is nutritionally equivalent to a 50 g spinach salad.

You can add barley sprouts, spirulina or chlorella to enhance the green and chlorophyll, but if you want to enrich and give more flavor to the preparation you can combine the juice with various ingredients, which will always be organic and locally grown.
