Wheat is the preferred form of grass because of its nutritional profile, growth cycle, crop yield and palatable taste. That said, nutritionally, the cereal grasses are virtually identical and the juices can be used interchangeably. While the plants may be interchangeable, the same is not true for the format (juice vs powder).
The most important factors are:
- Has it been field grown outdoors where the plant reaches its full nutritional potential and avoids the problems of the greenhouse.
- Is the product juice, which is highly bio-available raw, living food.
- Is the juice unpasteurized or has it been compromised with pasteurization, pascalization or irradiation.
