Scientific Research on Nutritional Content

It has been believed by many for some time that Micro greens have a high nutritional content. Now there is scientific proof. A team of scientists from the University of Maryland and the U.S. department of agriculture analyzed the nutrient composition of 25 commercially available microgreen varieties. Their study concluded that Microgreen cotyledon leaves had considerably higher nutritional densities than their mature counterparts. Depending on the micro green, there were higher levels of vitamin C, Beta-Carotene, Vitamin E and Vitamin K along with other vitamins and minerals. The study also suggests that the more exposure to sunlight for photosynthesis the higher the nutritional content found. This large scale microgreen study was published in the August 2012 issue of the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry.

Wheat Grass

Initially Wheat grass has an intense taste leaving a sweet, pleasant after taste. Many people who sample Slegers Wheat Grass juice for the first time are pleasantly surprised at how sweet it tastes.  We believe this is because it is grown in the greenhouse and is in:  a completely balanced organic soil mix and  with all the sunshine it needs  to create a nutrient rich high chlorophyll content.

  The health benefits of wheat grass juice are infinite. Top on the raw food list, wheat grass provides energy, many nutrients including Vitamin A,C, E, calcium, magnesium and amino acids.  Containing 70% chlorophyll , it is well known for cleansing  the body. Start out slowly with 1 ounce a day and increase from there. We encourage you to do research on wheat grass so you  are educated on how to use it. Wheat Grass is too fibrous for the stomach to digest and therefore must be juiced. Check your juicing manual to make sure it juices Wheat Grass before purchasing. Store in fridge.
