Questions & Answers

About Our Juices

What do I do when my LiveWheatgrass Juices have arrived?

We guarantee frozen delivery. Please place the frozen juice in your home freezer straight after delivery and it will keep those nutrients locked in until you defrost it. For best results, do not re-freeze. 

You can keep your Juices up to one year in your freezer without loosing any of the nutrients.

How do I best take the LiveWheatgrass Juices?

Please place the frozen juice in your home freezer straight after delivery and store in the freezer. This way, the Juice will stay as fresh with the nutrients locked in until you defrost it. For best results, do not re-freeze.

All you need to do is to simply place the frozen cups (lids still on) in a bowl of lukewarm water and leave them to defrost for about 10-15 min. You can then either enjoy mixed with apple juice, orange juice or simply diluted with water. The instructions are also on the back of the bags containing the frozen juice.

Alternatively, you pour some juice (fresh or bought) into a blender. Put the frozen Juice cups under the warm tap to loosen the frozen juice. Then simply add the frozen juice to blender and blend for 30 sec for a perfect drink!

We do advise you to drink the LiveWheatgrass Juices immediately after defrosting, usually within 15 min, as the nutrients will start to diminish thereafter (i.e. do not defrost and use hours later/ next day or leave overnight in the fridge).

There are many delicious ways of taking your LiveWheatgrass Juices. You can also blitz into smoothies and shakes with fresh fruits and vegetables from frozen without defrosting, as described above:

How do our Juices taste?

Our outdoor grown Live Wheatgrass juices tastes clear, smooth and fresh. Many go as far as to say that once mixed with fruit juices, it is delicious!

Our Wheatgrass, Kale and Beetroot Juices are all grown outdoors in real deep organic soil, with no detectable moulds. This makes the juice taste 1000% better and when you drink our Juices there are none of the side-effects incorrectly characterised as “detoxification”.

How long can I store the LiveWheatgrass Juices in my freezer?

We test our wheatgrass regularly through our collaboration with universities. The research shows that there is no loss of antioxidants and chlorophyll up to 2 years in the freezer. This means you can purchase several bags at the discounted bulk price and simply store in your home freezer. No fuss.

You can see from the table below that the antioxidants and chlorophyll keep at stable levels for over 2 years in a normal household freezer.

How much of Wheatgrass, Kale, Barley, Beetroot and Elixir Juices should I drink?

Our Juices are perfectly balanced nutritionally and so compliment each other very well. You can therefore enjoy our juices daily together in combination or separately. Below you can see the recommended doses.

Should you wish to take all 5 juices in combination, we recommend you daily take 1-2 cups of each juice. You are very welcome to call us if you have any questions related to dose to take 970-306-3233.

 Recommended doses for Wheatgrass, Barley Juices
 Children Min. 1/4 to 1/2 of one ounce cup
 Under 50 years of age and average weight Women: min. 1 or 2 ounces per day
 Men: min. 2 or 3 ounces per day
 Over 50 years of age or above average weight Women: min. 2 or 3 ounces per day
 Men: min. 3 or 4 ounces per day
 Seeking major changes Those trying to affect a major change should discuss dosage with a qualified nutritionist. However, typically it may be recommended that  you start with 4-6 ounces per day for 2 months, then you can re-evaluate and decide whether to continue, discontinue or economize. Please  refer to our book list for more guidance on dosage and ways of taking fresh wheatgrass juice or feel free to give us a call.
 Recommended doses for Kale Juice We recommend between 1-3 daily
 Recommended doses for Beetroot Juice We recommend between 1-2 daily
 Recommended doses for Elixir Vitality Juice We recommend between 1-2 daily

How big are the bags?

Each bag comes with 30 x 1 oz cups. The bag size is: 33cm x 22cm x 5cm (13in x 8.7in x 2in). You can easily fit 6 bags into one drawer in an upright freezer.

Are LiveWheatgrass Juices expensive?

NO. We are the only company in Europe to grow our Wheatgrass, Kale and Beetroot outside in organic fields in the rain, sun and wind. There are many other and cheaper wheatgrass products on the market such as tablets, pills, powders and you can grow it yourself in trays inside. However, these other forms might not be organic and they have often been going through a very aggressive growing method, which increases the levels of unnecessary sugars and mould development, which are all hidden in the products. Our organic wheatgrass grows naturally (as nature always intended) outside slowly over a period of 2-3 months, which means 48% higher Chlorophyll and 28% higher antioxidant levels compared to tray grown wheatgrass (research conducted by independent university). It is then harvested and juiced and frozen immediately for optimum nutritional value and a 110% guarantee of a world-class product.

Please have a look at this video to see the difference in the colour (chlorophyll levels) and explanation of the difference between other products and our product. Britt Cordi, is out on the fields on a windy explaining in detail the difference.

Our Kale and Beetroot juices are also grown outside in organic soil and we use the same juicing and freezing techniques as with our Wheatgrass Juice. Our Juices are simply the very best quality and no less than world class. They are 100% pure with no additives of any kind.

Our Elixir Vitality Juice is a unique blend of the very best products and was developed and produced by us here at LiveWheatgrass Ltd.

How do Wheatgrass and Barleygrass Juice compliment each other?

LiveWheatgrass Ltd is the first company in the world to make fresh 100% pure organic Barleygrass Juice readily available to everyone.

Wheatgrass and Barleygrass belong to the same grass family and are therefore naturally very similar. This means we need to get down to micro-nutrient levels to see that the two grasses compliment each other perfectly and both can support your health. To read more about the health benefits, click here.

  • Wheatgrass and Barleygrass contain a large number of complimentary enzymes and antioxidants.
  • Barleygrass Juice contains higher amounts of the important phytonutrient, beta-carotene, the pre-cursor of Vitamin A, which develops the body’s own defender cells, called T-cells. Wheatgrass Juice, on the other hand, contains very high levels of vitamin B12.
  • Barleygrass contains high levels of the beneficial water-soluble form of E vitamin, called a-tocopherol succinate.
  • Barleygrass has also been shown to contain the special antioxidant: 2’’-0-Glycosyl Isovitexin.

* Barleygrass has a stronger taste than wheatgrass and goes really well with orange juice

* To benefit from the nutrients in both grasses, simply alternate by drinking Wheatgrass juice one day and Barleygrass juice the other – or buy our pure, organic 50% Wheatgrass & 50% Barleygrass Juice blend for a daily energy boost.

Our SuperFood Juices & Health Benefits

What are the differences between outdoor | indoor | powder Wheatgrass?

Outdoor grown has up to 48% higher chlorophyll content and up to 28% higher antioxidant content compared to tray grown wheatgrass juice.

You can see the results in the tables below.

This research was conducted by University of Plymouth as an independent research project.

Indoor or tray grown wheatgrass is often also high in unnecessary sugar, as the wheatgrass is hyper-accelerated and therefore does not have time to convert the sugars into nutrients and it therefore stays as sugar in the wheatgrass. Indoor tray grown is also likely to have a mould problem as the growing environment to unnaturally humid and warm. These moulds release mycotoxins, which have a terrible taste and cause side-effects such as dizziness, nausea and headaches.

Our Wheatgrass, Kale, Barley and Beetroot are grown naturally and organically outside for 2-3 months the way nature intended. This means no sugar and no detectable mould – just pure, clean juice. This makes our juice taste 1000% better and when you drink our Juices there are none of the side-effects incorrectly characterised as “detoxification”.

Indoor grown wheatgrass and mould problems

Moulds often contaminate wheatgrass when grown in indoor / greenhouse environments. These moulds release mycotoxins which have a terrible taste and cause side-effects such as dizziness, Nausea and headaches.

In contrast, our Wheatgrass, Kale, Barley and Beetroot are grown naturally and organically outside for 2-3 months the way nature intended. This means no sugar and no detectable mould – just pure, clean juice.

This makes our juice taste 1000% better and when you drink our Juices there are none of the side-effects incorrectly characterised as “detoxification”.

What is the difference between Fresh Wheatgrass or Barley Juice compared to powder?

Fresh Wheatgrass or barley Juice compared to powder grasses is a very similar comparison to a fresh apple compared to a dried, powderised apple! The dried, powderised apple is not ‘a live food’, meaning it has lost the beneficial ‘zest’ and enzymes. Similarly, dried powderised wheatgrass has lost the ‘zest’ and the enzymes.

Please have a look at this video to see the difference in the colour (chlorophyll levels) and explanation of the difference between other products and our product. Britt Cordi, PhD, is out on the fields on a windy day explaining in detail the difference.

How does frozen Juice compare to freshly juiced?

Frozen Wheatgrass Juice is just as potent and nutritionally rich as freshly juiced Wheatgrass Juice.

Freezing foods or juices dramatically slow down molecular activity, it doesn’t stop or kill it. The lower the freezer temperature, the slower the molecular activity and better quality of the food. Our juice is kept at -30°C and the quality of the juice is just fantastic.

In terms of wheatgrass juice, the frozen LiveWheatgrass is vastly better than the fresh wheatgrass you can buy or make your-self through the wheatgrass trays. The question should be re-phrased to be: What is the difference between out-door grown wheatgrass compared to indoor tray-grown?

The advantages of outdoor grown wheatgrass compared to indoor grown:

  • Root system grows 6x deeper, as ours grown in real organic soil on fields outside.
  • Growth cycle is 2-3 months compared to 14 days in tray-grown, increasing the nutritional value immensely!
  • Chlorophyll levels are 50% higher in outdoor grown, as it grows in natural day light over 2 to 3 months.
  • Simple sugars are eliminated in outdoor grown and are converted in nutrients.
  • There are no detectable moulds when grown outdoors in real soil- so none of the side-effects incorrectly characterised as “detoxification”.
  • The juice tastes dramatically better in outddor grown as it is clean from mould and sugars.

The problem with indoor grown wheatgrass:

  • Indoor grown wheatgrass grows in shallow plastic trays with only a small amount of compost (if at all any!).
  • The plants grow in artificial lighting and therefore only contain 50% of Chlorophyll compared to outdoor grown plants.

The mould issue with indoor grown wheatgrass:

  • While tray growing may be hostile towards wheatgrass, it is very supportive of moulds.
  • Moulds release peculiar little poisons called mycotoxins, which can make the juice taste terrible and cause side effects like nausea, dizziness and headaches.
  • Wheatgrass juice properly grown outdoors tastes very pleasant. So if you have had a bad wheatgrass juice experience, try our juice. It will amaze you.

The power of flash freezing foods:

  • Britt Cordi, PhD, developed through her enzyme research the specialised production method PLANT OPTO? process. This includes a specialized flash or blast freezing method which ensures the juice is frozen within minutes.
  • Flash frozen fruits and vegetables do not lose their potency because flash freezing is dramatically different than slow freezing.
  • When you slow freeze something in your freezer at home, large ice crystals form and the food gets torn up from the inside out causing them to thaw with significantly different characteristics than when they entered the freezer.
  • Flash frozen foods are frozen with an overwhelming amount of cold, which causes rapid freezing and prevents the formation of large ice crystals.
  • As a result, the food maintains its taste, texture, colour and nutrition.
  • In reality, most frozen foods are actually better than fresh because they are harvested at their peak and flash frozen rather than being picked green and ripening inside their shipping containers.

You can see from the table below that the antioxidants and chlorophyll keep at stable levels for over 2 years in a normal household freezer compared to freshly juice wheatgrass juice.

Research conducted by University of Plymouth in an independent study.

What is the nutritional content of Wheatgrass, Kale, Beetroot and Elixir Vitality Juice?

Wheatgrass, our other Juices & Pregnancy

Wheatgrass and our other Juices are excellent in pregnancy as they contain so many vitamins, minerals, amino acids and beneficial enzymes, supporting yours and your baby’s health.

Raw Live Wheatgrass Juice is extraordinarily rich in nutrients and chlorophyll and contains high doses of Vitamin A, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin E all very important during pregnancy for you and the baby. It is a great immune booster, as you know your immune system can be a bit sluggish especially during pregnancy. Also, when you stay fully nourished, there is much less risk that you will feel cravings and loss of energy during this important time.

Assuming you are healthy and generally feeling well, we recommend you take 1-2 cups/shots of Wheatgrass Juice per day. It is great to take post-natal as well and great in breast feeding as your baby will get all the nutrients as well.

As all our Juices compliment each other, you can also take our Beetroot (high in the important Folic Acid) and Kale Juice or why not try our new Elixir Vitality Juice for a great boost, and to beat the tiredness and the cravings.

Wheatgrass Juice & Gluten intolerance

Our Wheatgrass Juice is perfectly suitable for those with gluten intolerance related conditions as the allergy stems from the gluten in normal wheat flour and other grain sorts.

We organically grow, then harvest the wheat plant at its early grass/growth stages before it becomes the actual grain that contains the gluten. We then juice it immediately for guaranteed optimum nutritional values. Many of the constituents of wheat flour or wheat in its grain form are absent in wheat grass. This means that many people who react poorly to wheat flour or wheat grain do just fine with Wheat grass- Indeed we have already existing clients with wheat and gluten intolerance who enjoy our Wheatgrass Juice safely.

Production of our SuperFood Juices

How do you freeze your wheatgrass and other Juices?

We freeze our wheatgrass juice and our other Juices within minutes through a specialised freezing method that ensures everything in the Juices stay locked in, so you get the full benefit of all the nutrients. We regularly do research on our juices with independent universities and the results show that our Juices contain the same level of nutrients (i.e. antioxidants and chlorophyll) as freshly juiced Juices.

This method is known as ‘blast freezing’. You can click here to read more about our growing and freezing methods.
