Company director, Jacquelyn Stewart became interested in wheatgrass and its benefits when she was diagnosed with skin cancer and decided to grow and juice her own wheatgrass as part of her treatment programme.
“I’d read studies about wheatgrass and its high level of alkaline properties, how it supports the immune system, oxygenates the blood and boosts red blood cell production. I began juicing and growing my own as it was impossible to get fresh wheatgrass juice in Ireland – so much of the market is powdered wheatgrass and, personally, I only wanted to take a pure, fresh product.”
The lack of availability and her own belief in the product drove Jacquelyn to set up her own Wheatgrass production facility in 2010.
Now she’s the only UK producer of a Ready to Drink Wheatgrass Shot with 12 week extended shelf life. This is a true artisan product with full provenance and traceability in the growing, harvesting, juicing, processing and packaging. They are ready to drink – no need to defrost, mix or “whizz in the blender”. They have full accreditation from The Vegetarian Society. No additives and no preservatives are used at any point during production.
