This wheat is the same wheat we use in our flagship wheatgrass growing kit. If you are looking for refills for growing wheatgrass, be sure to buy the 5 & 10 pre-measured bags. These pre-measured wheatgrass refills are our most popular product because everyone comes back for the incredible quality of seed that you can't find anywhere else.
All Wheat is Not Equal We have had the experience of growing wheatgrass and being in the commercial wheatgrass business over the last twenty years. We have experienced growing many different kinds of wheat from different areas: Texas, Utah, Idaho, Montana, California, and Israel-- both organic and non-organic. The wheat we use now is grown in eastern Washington and is undoubtedly the best wheat we have ever used. It has a spectacular germination rate and makes a beautiful and nutritious grass. Our wheat is USDA certified organic, which means the grower has not used herbicides in his field for over 3 years.
If a wheat is organic, it will have more of a variety of minerals than a non-organic wheat. If you grow with an organic compost the organisms in the soil will help the minerals absorb into the grass properly. Organic produce should also have the organism on it that produces cobalamin (B-12).
" Yay!! Yay!!!! I'm SOOOO GLAD my shipment will arrive tomorrow. I decided to try some Whole Foods organic winter wheat berries- you know, local, no shipping, on sale for 89 cents a pound.....oh, no. No, no, no, no. I used exactly the same amount of seed that I use of yours. I'd say there was about 1/3 less (at least) growth, it was sporadic- some short, some tall....and the mold....oh, the mold......the horror............... Sigh. Lesson learned. :-)
Thanks, and have a great weekend! Macha B. "
