Nutritional Grasses: Gluten? Grains?

Nutritional grasses, commonly known as cereal grasses, are the young green sprouts that grow into cereal grains such as wheat, barley, oats, and alfalfa. The nutritional profiles of these grasses are similar to or better than many dark green vegetables, although the human gastrointestinal system cannot digest them by merely chewing and swallowing them. Instead, you must juice them with a special extractor or dry and pulverize them into fine powder before the nutrients are made available to your body.
