I wanted to cultivate Wheat Grass indoors over the winter months but I never got around to it. Last weekend I sowed some seeds in several large pots outside and within a week's time I have shoots almost ready to harvest. I don't have a juicer. I plan to simply chew on these grasses to extract the juice. This is not a very common way to ingest Wheat Grass juice because most people don't like chewing on a mouthful of grass for several minutes, but it doesn't bother me at all. I actually enjoy it. After the juice is extracted, you simply spit out the remaining grasses.
Wheatgrass refers to the young grass of the common wheat plant, Triticum aestivum, that is freshly juiced or dried into powder for animal and human consumption. Both provide chlorophyll, amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and enzymes. Claims about wheatgrass' health benefits range from providing supplemental nutrition to having unique curative properties.
