Juicers and their Benefits

ao_juicerUsing the right juicer to process wheatgrass is very important if you want to extract the most benefit from the plant. Using a blender or processor will oxidize the chlorophyl, making it less potent. Wheatgrass juice should be made fresh, using the freshest sprouts for best taste, and consumed within a half-hour after extraction.

Wheatgrass flats and juicers are available for retail sale at our greenhouse.

We offer two juicer varieties. The Manual HealthyJuicer™ is rugged, efficient, easy to clean, and affordable. The Electric HealthyJuicer™ is ideal for multipurpose use, juice wheatgrass, fruits, veggies, and even make pasta and nut butters!
