Like all green plants barleygrass is rich in chlorophyll - the photosynthetic pigment plants use to create energy from sunlight – with over 600mg per 100g. Barleygrass is made from the immature leaf blades of the common barley plant, from which the barley grains used in cereal products are cultivated.

The barley plant has been cultivated for thousands of years and was one of the earliest crop plants to be domesticated for human use. It is reported that ancient Egyptians harvested the young barley shoots as well as the grains, and there are references to the use of the barley plant as a culturally important religious offering within the bible.

Our barleygrass is monitored throughout its growth and cut just as it reaches the jointing stage, when the intermodal tissues begin to elongate to form the stem of the adult barley plant. By harvesting the new leaf blades at this point in their development all of the carbohydrate energy, chlorophyll and amino acids which have accumulated in preparation for the plant’s transition from a vegetative to reproductive phase can be extracted.
