What is Swanson GreenFoods Barley Grass?

When we hear of Barley, we tend to think of lush fields, sprawled across the British countryside. The surprising truth of its origins actually tell of an altogether different and more exotic past. Originating in Ethiopia and South East Asia, it has been grown and farmed for over 10,000 years worldwide.

Initially used for both human and animal consumption, it began to gain notoriety when it was used to make alcohol. So ancient is the practice that the original recipes for Barley wine dates back to 2800 BC in Babylon.

Essentially a member of the common grass family, the Hordeum vulgare L plant has represented a major source of nutrition for the human race for thousands of years with perhaps the most famous use of barley having been initialised by the Greeks bread! In fact, the Romans even named their finest athletes after the cereal, 'Hordearii', which means 'those who eat barley'.

  • Gluten free alternative to Wheatgrass
  • Packed with vitamins and antioxidants
  • Rich in cleansing Chlorophyll

Today though, Barley production is predictably high. The world's major barley cultivators are United States, Canada, Russia, France, Germany and Spain. With barley accounting for one fourth of the world's cereal production.

So why eat the grass before it offers the grain? Certainly, the grain has long been utilised for its nutritional value but like anything, Barley Grass has to be prepared to grow that grain and the nutrients it harbours in its 'plant' are a veritable arsenal of healthy gifts, gifts that we humans can enjoy just as much.

What is Swanson GreenFoods Barley Grass used for?

So you've already got Wheatgrass in your diet, why do you need Barleygrass? Chances are that you don't, they both have very similar nutritive profiles. The only major difference is that Barley grass, unlike Wheatgrass, is gluten free.

We are fortunate enough to live in a world where the ongoing potential perils of gluten are beginning to become more clear to us. To some of us, avoiding gluten is not just a question of choice, it has become a question of necessity.

Swanson GreenFoods Barley Grass offers an incredibly healthy alternative to Wheatgrass, so much that some people actually believe it to be a superior option.

  • Chlorophyll acts as a body detox
  • Barley contains more calcium & vitamin B1 than milk
  • With up to five times more iron & seven times more carotene than spinach it is a remarkable mineral source
  • Not to mention the fact that it has over seven times the amount of vitamin C than an orange.
