Personally I've never tasted wheatgrass juice, but when we lived in Boulder, Colorado, one of our favorite restaurants used to serve it. My husband would order a shot glass-sized serving now and again. He said it was pretty potent tasting, and usually followed the shot with some water. I will find out soon enough how it tastes, as we are becoming wheatgrass farmers at home. It will be fun to see how this experiment turns out.
I did some reading, and it turns out the man who popularized wheatgrass first made it to help ailing chickens. Maybe we'll have to plant some near our chicken coop too! The man was Charles Schnabel, and his experiments were done in the 1930s. The health benefits apparently have not been verified by scientists, but many believe that consuming wheatgrass tablets or fresh squeezed juice, can improve digestion, prevent or cure diabetes/heart disease, plus provides general well-being.
The known health benefits of eating green leafy plants only adds to the theory that wheatgrass will be a good nutritional addition for both us and our chickens !!
