Please note, our Energy Bars are manufactured in a plant that processes wheat, milk, eggs, soy, peanuts and tree nuts.
What is the ORAC of our Green SuperFood?
Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) is a method of measuring antioxidant capacities of different foods. There are many things to consider when looking at the nutritional value of a product including; vitamins, minerals, enzymes, alkalinity and of course phytochemicals. Phytochemicals can support antioxidant protection, hormonal action, stimulation of enzymes, anti-bacterial effects and interference with DNA replication. Essentially they can help protect your body from diseases and cancer mutations.
In addition to providing an abundance of whole food nutritional benefits, our Green SuperFood is also very high in antioxidants. One 8 gram serving has an ORAC score of 2900. One ounce would equate to approx 10,200.
What do Amazing Grass products do for me?
Life's daily functions, such as digestion, stress, exercise, and the consumption of processed foods, coffee or alcohol all form acid. When your body's pH is in the acidic range, it retains water to dilute the acidity and stores fat to protect the body's organs from the acidity.
Amazing Grass wheat and barley grass has a high alkalizing effect, which helps restore the balance between acidity and alkalinity in our body. Most processed foods are acidic, and when we consume too many of them, the acidity-alkalinity balance is upset. Our cells cannot effectively function if our body is out of balance. Prolonged acidity can lead to stress of our body's cells and organs and ultimately may lead to illness and disease. Cleansing and detoxifying our body will balance the acidity-alkalinity ratio resulting in rejuvenated cellular activity. After our body's pH levels are balanced, you will notice an increase in energy, stamina and less need for sleep. Consuming Amazing Grass may also lead to a decreased craving for junk food, sweets and may limit overeating.
Amazing Grass has many live enzymes that help aid in digestion and other bodily functions. In addition to the live enzymes, Amazing Grass is also high in naturally produced anti-oxidants that neutralize free radicals and protect the skins' connective tissues. There are many testimonials from wheat grass consumers that have noticed an improvement of their skin's complexion and overall appearance.
Can I take Amazing Grass products if I'm pregnant?
Absolutely! We like to answer that question by asking 'Is it good to eat kale, broccoli or spinach while you are pregnant?' Our wheat grass is also a whole-food, green leafy vegetable. It very is important to get the best nutrition possible when you are pregnant. Not only for yourself, but of course for your baby. Nearly every doctor or nutritionist will attest that eating vibrant fruits and vegetables everyday is good for your health, especially when you are pregnant. We receive great feedback from pregnant mothers who consume our products during their pregnancy. The Amazing Grass co-founders wives both took our wheat grass and green superfood daily during pregnancy. They felt great during the entire pregnancy and both are convinced the greens made a huge difference in her health as well as the health of their children.
The fiber and naturally occurring digestive enzymes really help with constipation. Wheat grass is a good source of folic acid and other naturally occurring vitamins and minerals that your body and baby need more than ever when you are pregnant. Best of all, it is a green leafy vegetable...so you are getting your quota of greens everyday.

Amazing Grass Story How they got started….
Amazing Grass' Story They started this business out of their garage (actually Brandon's dining room table) in San Francisco, California in 2002. Two guys with a desire to build a grass roots business that compliments their passion for the outdoors and a healthy lifestyle. Both founders, Brandon and Todd, spent years in the "corporate grind" and realized how stress from the workday and poor eating habits adversely affected the lives of the typical American. They became convinced that phrases "I'm exhausted" and "I think I'm coming down with something" directly reflected that daily stress and inadequate diet.
Co-workers at a previous job, Todd noticed that Brandon was always drinking this "green drink" and seemed immune from the office flu and the contagious mid-afternoon yawn. It wasn't long before Brandon was supplying Todd and the rest of the office with wheat grass. After trying it for a couple weeks and picking up a book on it's incredible benefits, Todd became a true believer. As word spread, Brandon developed a long list of friends hooked on wheat grass that often called or stopped by his house to replenish their supply. The number of wheat grass believers grew so fast that Brandon's supply couldn't keep up. His freezer was getting pillaged on a daily basis. (They know this sounds like a scene from "Cops", but they swear its just wheat grass!)
With the help of a college class from Cal Poly SLO, their families and great friends (not to mention the support of their "AMAZING" and patient…OK… extremely patient wives), they started their company called "Amazing Grass". Amazing Grass' goal is to educate the world and share the amazing benefits of wheat grass that are coveted by those who are already in "the know." It is their passion to help people live healthier lives. They pledge to always listen to their customers, and work to constantly improve, create and offer "healthy" products that are also affordable. It's an amazing adventure to grow this business to reflect their dreams, passions and beliefs.
Today, Amazing Grass offers the most powerful vegetable on earth, consumable in a convenient way that aligns with their hectic lifestyles. They love hearing your stories about how their Amazing Grass products have changed your life. They also encourage their new friends to write us with their stories. The timeless phrase, "you are what you eat", sums up many of the responses. Eat Grass! Get Healthy!
