Wheat Grass can be traced back in history over 5000 years, to ancient Egypt and perhaps even early Mesopotamian civilizations.
It is purported that ancient Egyptians found the young leafy blades of wheat sacred and prized them for their positive effects.
The modern history of wheatgrass goes back more than 80 years to the research by Charles Schnabel and other scientists. Those pioneers operated out of the same location now used by Pines International.
Pines still uses one of their laboratories and many of their fields north of Lawrence, Kansas. Schnabel’s team discovered that the nutritional-density of wheatgrass and other cereal grass reaches a peak level at a special time. That occurs in the early spring and lasts for only a few days. It is known as the “jointing stage.”
In winter wheat growing regions, the stage occurs once each year after a winter of slow growth.
Wheatgrass can be grown indoors or outdoors. A common method for sprout production indoors is often on trays in a growth medium such as a potting mix. Leaves are harvested when they develop a "split" when another leaf emerges.
These can then be cut off with scissors and allow a second crop of shoots to form.
