This super concentrated and highly nutritious powder is a great cholesterol reducer and antioxidant. Our Raw Organic Barley Sprout Powder is easy to mix into juices and water, and is in its most bioavailable form for optimal assimilation into the body.
Our Raw Organic Barley Sprout Powder contains one of the highest concentrations of protein, vitamins, minerals, bioflavonoids, and phytochemicals in the plant world. Sprouted plants are more bioavailable than their mature counterparts, and their nutrients are more easily extracted by the body for energy and healing.
- High in fiber
- High in antioxidants
- Contains live enzymes
- Hydroponically grown
- 100% whole food
Cell walls of plant sprouts are more delicate, and break down better during digestion. Our Raw Organic Barley Sprout Powder is chock full of vital amino acids, enzymes, and antioxidants that promote allover health and well-being.
Why Sprout Powders?
Sprouted grains, legumes, and seeds are some of the most vitamin and mineral-dense foods on the planet. When the seeds are germinated, through their initial contact with water in the sprouting process, their nutritional content changes dramatically. They become higher in protein, lower in carbohydrates, and develop a host of vital live enzymes.
During the first few days of sprouting, a newly developing sprout is loaded with potential energy -- the life source necessary for the seed to grow. As the sprout grows and matures into a plant, this concentrated energy is diluted. The sprouts used for these sprout powders are sprouted only for a short period of time, and are harvested before they change from a sprouted seed to a young plant, at the exact time when they are at their maximum level of nutritional and enzymatic value.
At this point in the sprout's development, the Vitamins, minerals, and important phytochemicals are in their most potent form, and are in their most readily bioavailable state. Additionally, research has shown that for those grains containing gluten, at this stage the gluten content is reduced and is in a more easily digestible form.
After the young sprouts have reached this optimum level of development, they are harvested and slow-dried at low temperatures. Drying at low temperatures is extremely important so that the live enzymes in the sprouts remain alive. After the drying process, the sprouts are then gently ground into a fine powder.
More About Barley Grass…
Barley grass is one of the richest sources of nutrients on the planet. It not only contains 20 amino acids, including all eight essential ones, it is packed with 12 vitamins, 13 minerals, and a package of enzymes that help repair damaged cells and protect against free radicals.
A Unique Source of SOD’s
Barley grass and sprouts are a rare source of a special compound known as Superoxide Dismutase (SOD). This enzyme is one of the most powerful defenses against chemically reactive molecules (free radicals) that damage cells. Free radicals invade the body through pesticides and herbicides, ozone contamination, nutritional deficiencies, injuries, UV gamma rays, and toxic metals. SOD acts as an antioxidant that helps the body to repair itself quickly. SOD has been known to slow the effects of aging and reduce inflammation in the body.
Hydroponically Grown and Responsibly Harvested
Our Raw Organic Barley Sprout Powder begins its journey from certified organic seeds that are carefully selected and guaranteed to be of the best quality in the industry. The sprouts are grown in a precision-controlled environment, high in the Rocky Mountains, where each small batch is micro-biologically tested and allowed to thrive in an oxygen-rich atmosphere.
Everything about the growing process is meticulously watched, from the temperature and moisture surrounding the plants to the lighting and air-quality. The sprouts are grown hydroponically by placing the delicate roots in a liquid nutrient solution, rather than in soil. This creates a smaller root for each plant, which means we can grow more sprouts in a smaller facility. Energy and overhead remain low, and we pass the savings on to you in the form of lower prices.
The sprouts are harvested at their highest nutrient density, and processed at low temperatures to preserve fragile enzymes and amino acids. We gently crush our air-dried sprouts into a powder, which tastes wonderful sprinkled onto salads and vegetables or mixed into beverages.
If cared for properly, our Raw Organic Barley Sprout Powder has a shelf life of two to three years. To preserve the freshness of this product:
- Avoid exposure to heat. The powder will remain fresh if stored at room temperature or below.
- Avoid exposure to direct sunlight.
- Squeeze all of the air out of the bag before sealing.
- Seal the bag tightly after each use.
- Store the powder in a dry place, and avoid all contact with moisture.
We package all of our superfood powders in all-natural brown kraft bags, each with a resealable zipper across the top. Each bag has a thin metal lining, which serves as a very effective barrier to light, oxygen, odors, flavors, moisture, and bacteria.
While printed plastic bags with clear windows may look beautiful, studies have shown that the toxins contained in the plastic are absorbed by food that is in direct contact with the plastic. Foods that are raw and all-natural, like superfood powders, are even more susceptible to this type of contamination than processed foods.
