1st safeguard is the environment in which our products are grown. Our
wheat grass and barley
grass are organically grown without herbicides or pesticides
in rich Kansas soil. This fertile, mineral abundant farmland is
located in the perfect climate for cereal grasses. Kansas ranks
number one in the production of wheat and other cereal grains, and
that's no accident. Cereal grasses planted in the fall and grown
through the Kansas winter are nutritionally superior to products
grown elsewhere because the grasses grow slowly and develop
naturally in an ideal climate. Just as cactus grows well in the
desert, wheat grass grows well in Kansas.
2nd safeguard is harvesting just prior to
years of research clearly establishes the fact that the highest
levels of nutrients occur during this period. We
harvest just once a year during this critical window of
The 3rd safeguard is direct cutting so that the leaves never touch
the ground and are moved quickly (within an hour) to our
4th safeguard is our specially designed, low temperature
dehydrator which helps keep nutrient levels at maximum levels.
(The dehydrator is a triple bypass drum dehydrator, through which
the grass leaves fly for 2-3 seconds, so that the cell temperature
of the leaf never goes above 106F, to help make sure we retain
maximum levels of heat sensitive nutrients like beta carotene and
5th safeguard is the extensive in-house quality control testing on
every 1,000 kilogram batch. Samples are also sent to an
independent lab for verification.
6th safeguard is our storage of the cereal grasses and alfalfa in
pellets, greatly decreasing the surface area to reduce oxidation
and loss of nutrients.
7th safeguard is our nitrogen filled pharmaceutical grade "super sacks"
that we use for storage, further limiting oxidation and nutrient
8th safeguard is our frozen storage where the nutrient content of
the products remains virtually unchanged indefinitely.
9th safeguard is the removal of product from frozen storage only
as needed to package our bottles. It is at this point that we
grind the pellets into powder with our low temperature grinder,
and then either bottle the powder, or move it to the tableting
10th safeguard is our high compression, low temperature process
which makes tablets that are 98% pure.
11th safeguard is our in-house and independent lab-testing of the
finished product to ensure the safest, most nutritious wheat
grass, barley grass, and alfalfa possible.
12th, we nitrogen pack all our products in amber glass to restrict
the effects of light and oxygen, once again to keep nutrient
