Green barley grass is harvested from young barley plants no taller than 25cm. By using these young plants, we ensure that optimal minerals and vitamins are retained in the plant’s leaves. Of particular note are the high levels of chlorophyll present in green barley (chlorophyll is the plant equivalent of haemoglobin in humans). There are some differences between barley kernels (as cooked in cereal or other dishes) and green barley grass, the most notable of which is the presence of chlorophyll in the latter.

Rich in Anti oxidants
Barley grass is rich in Vitamin C which is important for maintenance of healthy collagen, bones and cartilage. It is also rich in chlorophyll (also an antioxidant).
It is important to harvest young shoots, in order to retain the properties of barley. This ensures that high amounts of chlorophyll can be obtained from the barley grass. Older shoots undergo changes that lead to a significant drop in chlorophyll levels, and thus also a drop in nutritional value.
