Barley grass is believed to be one of the first cultivated cereal grains, dating back to ancient Asian and Middle Eastern cultures. Sevenhills Wholefoods’ New Zealand Barley Grass, known to be regarded as the finest variation, is organically grown on the fertile Canterbury Plains, on a local farm that has been organically certified for over 20 years. Barley Grass was discovered as a Superfood during agricultural research in the 1930s. Today it is renowned globally as a dietary supplement, thanks to its wide range of nutrients. Barley grass is rich in protein, dietary fibre and essential minerals such as Iron and Zinc, as well as containing Vitamin A, several B Vitamins and Vitamin C. These are known to be important for maintaining our eyesight, skin, hair and bones, as well as being crucial for effective healthy immune system balance, blood-oxygen transit and even help to alleviate tiredness and fatigue. We suggest adding 1 teaspoon to food or drink daily, gradually increasing this to a 1 tablespoon serving over a 6 week period, as the body adjusts to the improved nutrient content.

Wheat and barley grasses are free of allergens as ingredients. However, there is a remote possibility of cross contamination by gluten if the farmer allows wheat and barley to begin developing seeds. Our farmers monitor the growth of the leaves to eliminate this risk, hence we consider our products gluten free.
