Wheatgrass comes from the cotyledons of a plant called tritium aestivum (common wheat plant), a subspecies of the Poaceae family. The western world began to consume wheatgrass in the 1930’s after an American agricultural chemist named Charles F. Schnabel experimented on wheatgrass’s health properties. However, ancient cultures such as the Egyptians consumed wheatgrass; it was considered to be a sacred plant due to its health benefits. Wheatgrass is generally grown outdoors and the blades are snipped off when the leaves split, called the jointing stage. During the jointing stage the plant hits its peak nutritional value.
Dr. Charles F. Schnabel continued to advocate for the benefits of wheatgrass and conducted experiments that exposed its fantastic health properties.
