How To Make Wheatgrass Powder

Looking for a more convenient way to eat your wheatgrass than by juicing? Not everyone has a juicer. And for those who do have a juicer, it's often hard to find the time to go through the juicing and cleaning process on a busy morning. Look no further because wheatgrass powder is a much more convenient alternative than wheatgrass juice, and it's so easy to make. Read the full wheatgrass powder how-to below.

What You'll Need:
- HAMAMA Grow Kit
- Sweet Wheatgrass Seed Quilt
- Scissors or bread knife
- Baking sheet
- Coffee grinder

Step One: Harvest

You've been growing your Sweet Wheatgrass Seed Quilt in your HAMAMA Grow Kit for 10 days, and now...it's time to harvest! Use scissors or a bread knife to harvest your wheatgrass about 1/2" above the Seed Quilt.

Your Sweet Wheatgrass Seed Quilt will look something like this at the 10-day mark, when it's ready to harvest!

Step Two: Bake In The Oven

Next you'll place your harvest on a baking sheet. The baking sheet and wheatgrass will go into the oven to bake at 200 degrees Fahrenheit. After two hours, the wheatgrass leaves will be dry and brittle.

Step Three: The Grind

Place the dried wheatgrass into a coffee grinder, pulse, and Voila! You have wheatgrass powder ready to go. Store it in your pantry in an airtight jar or Ziploc bag. Each Sweet Wheatgrass Seed Quilt will yield approximately 4 tablespoons of wheatgrass powder. Use half a tablespoon of your wheatgrass powder in your smoothies or mix into water to reconstitute as wheatgrass juice! Try sneaking your wheatgrass powder into other concoctions like soup, salad dressing, yogurt, and more. Enjoy!

Hello Asenath!

Thank you so much for your comment! Placing in the sun could take a longer time to dry out as well as other elements like wind and dust could cause some issues! If you find a way that works for you outdoors, please let us know! We would love to hear about your experience! :)

Hi everyone. Wheatgrass is great for health. It contains many nutrients but the most beneficial component is vitamin c. This vitamin is heat sensitive. Both heat in oven and in grinder kills vitamin c. So the best way to consume wheatgrass is harvest, wash, put into vitamix along with some ice and water. Blend. Drain green water and it is ready for drink in it’s most beneficial form.

Hi Jasmin!! I suspect that drying it would change some factors! Most of what I’ve read indicates that drying actually increases the nutritional density because there is less water! :D Wheatgrass powder has a pretty stable shelf life; it should be stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. Keep it away from sunlight as the sunlight can diminish the nutritional quality!

I am growing wheatgass in my livingroom and I love it. I plan to put it in my dehydrator to dry it. I feel the high temp of 200 would take away from the nutritional value. I will attempt it at a low temp of 103 to 106. It will take longer but I feel its worth it. I am excited to make the powder as I have some immune issues and feel it is an amazing way to bring my system back to balance. Thank you for your site. Sharon

Hi, I am wanting to grow wheatgrass too! I like the idea of drying it, but have a concern of it losing nutritional value. Can you please answer that. Also, I have always read that if you heat over 105 it does lose nutritional value. Dehydrating to me would be the answer. I love your creative process though.
Thank you,
Sharon

Hello,
Why could wheatgrass not just be dried un a dehydrator, than rehydrate it when yo use it? I have just dehydrated dr one, I plan,to try this tomorrow. I would think it would definitely keep longer, and I make mine with,fresh in a high ssd’s speed blender with a little water anyway, than strain, and I get some very good tasting wheatgrass juice. I really do not see why you Gould not do this, I mean even if tmyku grjbd it, you have to,mix it with liquid. I am,thinking when grinding it, their is a lot of heat in those c mill grinders., and you are possibly losing some nutrients. I am open to comments.
Thank you!

So you would have to buy alot of seed quilts to get a good amount of powdered wheatgrass and how long does the powder stay good for?
