“This isn’t really grass; it only looks like it,” says Nikki Morris, Farm & Orchard Manager. “This is wheat and it’s intensely packed with nutrients in its seed form.” All of wheat’s beneficial nutrients are contained in the seed and roots—only water is added during the 7-day growing period. Once the wheatgrass is ready to be juiced, it’s used as a main ingredient in our Wegmans Organic Green Glory Juice and Wheatgrass Juice Boost, both of which can be found in our Produce Department. We think these drinks are the most delicious way to get the benefits of wheatgrass.
Our Wegmans Organic Green Glory Juice is small batch-made and never heated for a refreshing, clean flavor. There’s no added sugar; its natural sweetness comes from fresh organic fruit and veggie juices. It’s made of 100% fresh organic juices: wheatgrass, apple, pineapple, kale, celery, and lemon, plus fresh organic spinach. It’s a good source of potassium to support heart health, too.
Our Wegmans Organic Wheatgrass Juice Boost gives you all the health benefits of wheatgrass in one quick, on-the-go shot. Made with 100% organic juices, we blend the wheatgrass with pineapple juice for refreshing flavor, and add hints of parsley and cayenne pepper for some extra pep! This nutrient boost is cold-pressured, never heated, and a good source of iron per serving.
