Contrary to what the name suggests, Wheat Grade contains no gluten – but plenty of chlorophyll, beta-carotene, iron, vitamin C, and zinc. The young stalks can be squeezed into juice or snipped over salad, but are very hard to come by – a simpler variation is definitely wheatgrass powder, which is great for mixing in Smoothie Bowls.
