is the freshly sprouted shoots of grains of wheat. In Traditional
Chinese Medicine, it is used interchangeably with barley grass. Wheat
grass is grown by soaking the seeds in clean water for 6-12 hours
until they sprout and grow shoots approximately 2 inches (5 cm) long.
Barley grass provides a broader ranger of nutrients, but wheat grass
has a superior content of antioxidants and organic phosphates.
Wheatgrass sprouting seeds themselves are a wonderful addition to any
diet. As above, soak the seeds for 6-12 hours, rinse the water out,
and dry thoroughly. This should be repeated at least 3 times, but may
be repeated more if you want your seeds to get larger. Make sure they
are very dry the last round of soak/rinse as they will keep better in
the refrigerator the dryer to the touch that they are.
