Claridges Organic Barley Leaf Powder 250g
Barley grass is one of the earths most ancient foods - apparently eaten by gladiators to give them strength and stamina. It is rich in beta cartene, calcium and contains an essential balance of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes including the antioxidant superoxide dismutase. Barley grass has twice the fibre of bran and more iron than spinach.
The Canterbury plains, situated in New Zealands South Island is the ideal place for growing grass and cereal crops. The alluvial soils are young and fertile, the irrigation water is fresh and pure, the atmosphere is clean and unpolluted and coupled with the high UV light, barley and wheat leaves grow deep green chlorophyll rich leaves.
