We have a separate company, Origin Foods, that conducts strict quality checks on all wheatgrass products. A highly automated production process allows for the consistent quality of each wheatgrass sachet. Nothing is left to chance from seed to shelf ensuring that you get the highest quality of wheatgrass with the highest nutritional value in every sachet.
The vitamin content of the seed increases tremendously when sprouted. Depending on the seed, optimum vitamin content generally occurs from 50 to 96 hours after it begins to germinate. Sprouts are an exceptionally good sources of vitamins C, B, A and E.
Sprouting produces a powerhouse of mineral activity. Wheatgrain is even more nutritious when it has been sprouted. Its calcium increases from 45 to 72 mg, its phosphorus from 423 to 1050mg, magnesium from 133 to 343mg. Sprouting also gives rise to the formation of vitamin C and activates certain diastases enzymes that were already present in a potential state.

Antioxidant activity increases in wheat sprouts and young grass as well: these include traces of beta-carotene (Pro-vitamin A), vitamins C and E. Pro-vitamin A supplied in wheatgrass juice is about as much as dark green varieties. (Wheatgrass book by Ann Wigmore)
There have been more than a handful of studies showing the powerful effects of wheatgrass with regard to its chlorophyll content, or its ability to hasten the rebuilding of red blood cells. According to The Acid-Alkaline Diet for Optimum Health by Christopher Vassey, wheat sprouts are the highest in chlorophyll of any plant source. From this axiom alone, it is no wonder why Dr. Brad Jensen proclaimed wheatgrass along with green juices as superior to the other blood builders.
