Taste and application possibilities
Wheatgrass has a very green, earthy flavor that can be slightly bitter. Some people describe it as a very concentrated version of the taste of green vegetables or spinach. Organic wheatgrass is grown without the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, which many believe can contribute to a cleaner, more natural taste.
In terms of application, wheatgrass is incredibly versatile. The most common area of application is as an ingredient in juices or smoothies. It can simply be added to a blender along with fruit, vegetables and some liquid to make a nutritious drink. This can be an easy way to incorporate wheatgrass into your diet, as the strong flavor can be masked by the other ingredients.
Wheatgrass can also be dried and powdered to make a dietary supplement that can be added to foods or beverages. Finally, fresh wheatgrass can be used as an ingredient in salads or other raw foods, or it can be used as a garnish to add color and nutrition to a variety of dishes.
It is important to note that due to its high fiber content, it is best consumed in juice or supplement form, as it can be difficult to digest in its raw, whole form.
Grow your own
Growing wheat grass is a simple and rewarding process. Here is a basic step-by-step guide:
- Prepare your seeds: Start with organic wheatgrass seeds (also known as wheat berries). These must be soaked in water for approx. 8-12 hours. The water is then drained and the seeds must rest and germinate for another 24 hours.
- Prepare your soil: Wheat thrives best in well-drained soil. Fill one sprout hill or another flat container with approx. 1-2 cm coconut flour. Feel free to add liquid fertilizer for higher yields.
- Sow your seeds: Spread the germinated seeds evenly over the soil. Do not cover the seeds with soil as this may prevent them from germinating properly.
- Water regularly: The seeds must be kept moist, but not wet. Water your seeds once or twice a day, depending on the climate.
- Wait for growth: After a few days you should start to see little green shoots appear. As the grass grows, continue to water it regularly.
- Harvest: When the grass is about 15-20 cm high – typically after 7-10 days – it is ready to be harvested. Use sharp scissors to cut the grass just above the surface of the soil.
- Use or store the grass: Wheatgrass is best when used fresh, but it can also be stored in the refrigerator for a few days. To store it, make sure the grass is dry before placing it in an airtight container.
So there you have it! With a little patience and care, you can easily grow your own organic wheat at home.
Wheatgrass originates from Western Asia, and is derived from the common wheat plant, Triticum Aestivum. It has been cultivated and used as food for thousands of years, and it is known to have been an important part of the diet of many ancient civilizations, including the ancient Egyptians and the Mesopotamians.
However, it was not until the 20th century that wheatgrass gained widespread recognition as a nutritional supplement in Western cultures. This interest stems primarily from research conducted by American chemist Charles Schnabel, who popularized wheatgrass in the 1930s as a health-promoting food.
Today, the grass is grown all over the world, both commercially and by home growers, and is commonly used in juices, smoothies, and nutritional supplements due to its high vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant content.
