Barleygrass is made from the immature leaf blades of the common barley plant, from which the barley grains used in cereal products are cultivated.

When harvested within the early growth stages as the plant is preparing to enter the reproductive phase, all of the nutrients which have accumulated in preparation for the production of seeds can be extracted, from where they are stored within the young barleygrass shoots.
Considered to be the first cereal grain cultivated by humans, the medicinal and food uses of barley date back to 7000 BC. It is reported that ancient Egyptians harvested the young barley shoots as well as the grains, and there are references to the use of the barley plant as a culturally important religious offering within the bible.

Our barleygrass is grown organically on outdoor pastures in a pristine, unpolluted area of Northern China. The seeds are planted in the autumn of each year and allowed to grow over the next 4-5 months, giving the barley plants time to extract the maximum amount of nutrients from the fertile soil. As our barleygrass is cultivated outside the developing shoots benefit from exposure to many hours of natural sunlight each day, and the long growing season gives the young barley plants ample time to assimilate all of the minerals extracted from the nutrient rich soil. No chemical pesticides or fertilisers are used to grow our organic barleygrass, and all of the water used to irrigate the fields is extracted from deep below the ground and guaranteed free from pollution or agricultural runoff.
Our barleygrass is monitored throughout its growth and cut just as it reaches the jointing stage, when the intermodal tissues begin to elongate to form the stem of the adult wheat plant. By harvesting the new leaf blades at this point in their development all of the carbohydrate energy, chlorophyll and amino acids which have accumulated in preparation for the plant’s transition from a vegetative to reproductive phase can be extracted.
After jointing the nutrient stores are diverted from the leaves towards reproduction and producing grain, so it is crucial that the barleygrass is harvested within this short window in development. In the period after jointing the pliant young leaf blades are replaced by tough cellulose fibres which give the mature barley plant structure, and this increase in cellulose synthesis corresponds to a sharp drop in chlorophyll levels as the photosynthetic activity of the plant declines.
By allowing the shoots to continue developing in natural conditions for as long as possible, we can ensure that our barleygrass contains only minimal amounts of simple sugars stored within its leaves, as these are converted over time into complex carbohydrates which release energy more slowly when digested 5. Once ready to be harvested, the young barleygrass plants are carefully cut at the base by hand and quickly transported to a facility where they are carefully cleaned, then sorted by hand to remove any poor quality leaves. The barleygrass is then dried rapidly and crushed into a fine powder using a freezing air method, with less than an hour passing from the moment the barleygrass leaves are cut to production of the finished powder.
