Wheatgrass can be consumed as freshly pressed juice or as wheatgrass powders, tablets and capsules. The properties of wheatgrass powder and wheatgrass juice differ according to varying soil conditions, individual growing time, temperature and environment.
Roughly one tablespoon of wheatgrass powder equals one ounce of juice. The powder can be mixed in water or in fruit juices for easy consumption.
Wheatgrass advocate Steve Meyerowitz recommends 1 to 2 oz. of wheatgrass be taken daily for health maintenance. More wheatgrass can be consumed when desired to treat an ailment.
It is debatable whether wheatgrass powder delivers the same nutritional benefits as fresh wheatgrass juice. Many wheatgrass users believe the fresh juice to be more potent. Consumers experimenting with powder and juice dosages determine for themselves which form of wheatgrass and which dosage is best for them.
