This organic wheat is grown regionally by our partner farmer according to Naturland guidelines. Due to his many years of experience and gentle treatment, there is hardly any breakage in this wheat. This gives you the best conditions for your wheatgrass. Of course, you can also use this wheat for consumption and baking.
If you're wondering why you should grow wheatgrass, here are a few facts about this superfood:
100 g wheatgrass has approx:
- 60 x more vitamin C than oranges
- 50 x more vitamin E than spinach
- 30 x more vitamin B1 than cow's milk
- 11 x more calcium than raw milk
- 5 x more iron than spinach
- 5 x more magnesium than bananas
But probably most important is its high chlorophyll content, which supports the following positive properties of wheatgrass, among others:
- Contributes to blood formation
- Has a detoxifying and cleansing effect
- supports and strengthens the immune system
- Repairs minor cell damage
- has an anti-inflammatory effect
- makes for beautiful skin
- is antimicrobial and antibacterial
- Lowers blood pressure
So there's no reason not to grow your own wheatgrass for your juice or smoothie.
When cultivating, you should pay attention to the following:
- Soak the seeds in water beforehand. Best overnight (12-16 hours).
- Cultivation works best in good organic soil.
- Sow densely. However, be careful that several wheat grains do not lie on top of each other.
- Leave covered for approx. two days so that the wheat can germinate evenly.
- Water regularly (twice a day). Attention: Wheatgrass does not like waterlogging, so it is best to use containers from which the liquid can run off. For example, our 1020 trays with holes.
- Since the wheat grains are sown relatively soon, good ventilation is important to prevent mould from forming.
- You can harvest your wheatgrass after about 10 to 12 days, when it has most of its ingredients and tastes nice and sweet.
This seed can be used for microgreen cultivation as well as in the sprout jar.
