Cereal is a general word for starchy grains. Cereal grasses are the first phase of growth.
Barley grass powder, wheatgrass powder, and alfalfa powder are powerful and concentrated green superfoods.
They are not to be mixed up with the actual grain or breakfast cereals.
So what exactly are cereal grasses?
One dictionary definition of cereal it this:
“A grass producing a cereal grain, grown as an agricultural crop”.
To simplify, the cereal grain begins as a seed. The beginning stage of maturity IS a grass.
These delicate powerhouses, pave the way for the starchier grain, unless harvested at that early stage of development.
As growth continues, they become the grains most of us are familiar with, like wheat or barley. In the “grass” phase, grains are very high in chlorophyll. That bright and beautiful green color, is the synthesis of Sunlight!

Grasses vs. grains
As the grasses grow, they form a grain, that can be cooked or floured.
But in the “grass” phase, they cannot be used for this purpose. They are similar to this photo – they are actually grass.
Some examples of cereal grasses include:
- barley grass
- oat grass
- wheat grass
They contain higher amounts of micro-nutrition in this phase.
- organic minerals
- and enzymes
When they are powdered as a supplement, they are green in color and have a very concentrated nutritional value in one scoop In the grass stage, grains are also, much higher in nutritional value.

Benefits of cereal grasses
Cereal grass are highly absorbable, concentrated nutrition. These nutrients, are building blocks for our cellular growth and repair.
Because of the high nutrition, they can help
- increase and sustain energy naturally, because they give cells the nutrients they need
- to improve skin. Many nutrients never reach the skin because the daily amounts are too low. The vital organs take them first.
- increase the alkalinity of body tissue (slightly alkaline is normal for health)
- feed the immune system. The immune system, like all other systems, needs nutrition, and often doesn’t get it.
- add to vitality and general heath
- reduce sugar cravings (because the cells receive what they need)
- with weight loss, because cellular nutrition can reduce cravings.
Cereal grasses can help to detoxify the body tissue, because of the chlorophyll and nutrient value.
Also, they can help alkalize the body tissue, which is natural to general health and vitality. Our tissue need to be slightly alkaline or we become a breeding ground for pathogens.
- Detoxification is a natural and important bodily function. Metabolism itself, creates toxins.
Then, lets add processed foods, chemicals in the water, and waste in the air. IN A FLASH, we are overloaded.
We need all the help we can get to keep our body clean, healthy and vibrant!
Cereal grasses are high in antioxidants which are natural to concentrated whole foods.
For instance, Barley grass is know to contain a high level of enzyme SOD (superoxide dismutase), which is an important antioxidant that may protect us from cancer.
This is because antioxidants are known to scavenge free radicals which can damage the cells.
