Who is the originator of wheatgrass juice? - Britt's Superfoods

Who is the originator of wheatgrass juice?

The roots of wheatgrass juice reach back through time, entwined with ancient traditions and practices. Centuries ago, Hindus bestowed Wheatgrass saplings as offerings to the Mother Goddess, and in Persian society, the cultivation of Wheatgrass became a ritualistic celebration of Nowruz, the Persian New Year, dating back to the 6th century BC.

Fast forward to the 1930s, where Dr. Charles Schnabel played a pivotal role in popularising wheatgrass. He introduced powdered wheatgrass, turning it into a recognised vitamin-rich food in the United States and Canada. This marked a significant step in bringing the benefits of wheatgrass to a broader audience.

However, it wasn't until the 1970s that wheatgrass truly entered the limelight, thanks to the efforts of Ann Wigmore. Recognised as the founder of the Hippocrates Health Institute, Wigmore became a fervent advocate for wheatgrass juice. She championed its inclusion in raw food diets, asserting that wheatgrass cleanses the body of toxins while providing a proper balance of essential nutrients.

Today, the popularity of wheatgrass has soared, with numerous suppliers offering this green elixir. Among them, Britt’s Superfoods stands out as a pioneer in providing outdoor-grown organic wheatgrass juice, harnessing the purest essence that nature has to offer.
