FAQ’s

What does chemical free mean?

Nutrigreen chemical free products are grown and processed without the addition of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, preservatives, colouring or any other chemical additives that would not normally be found in a pure, natural product. Laboratory tests are also used to ensure that no chemical contaminants are present in the soil, air, water or raw materials used in growing and manufacturing our products.

What enzymes are found in Nutrigreen powders?

Cereal grasses are believed to contain several thousand enzymes, but only a few have been identified. The enzymes found in young barley leaf include amino transferase, asparte, catalase, cytochrome oxidase, fatty acid oxidase, lipoxygenase, nitrogen oxyreductase, peroxidase, superoxide distmutase and transhydrogenase.

How can leaf be dried without destroying its goodness?

Nutrigreen uses a specially developed low temperature process that avoids heating the leaf above 50ºC. When dry, the leaf is milled into its powder form using an air based system that avoids the high temperatures generated by conventional grinding methods.

What is the difference between whole leaf powder and juice powder?
Whole leaf powder is made from the entire young leaf, without subjecting it to the stress of juice extraction, which not only requires the product to be chemically modified, but also removes the beneficial natural plant fibre.

Is there any difference between Barley, Wheat and Alfalfa powder?

Nutritionally, there is very little difference between barley and wheat leaves, although wheat leaf powder will generally be lighter in colour and taste sweeter. Alfalfa is a legume, whereas barley and wheat are cereal grasses, so Alfalfa, while having similar macro nutrients, has a different balance of other components such as amino acids and trace elements.

Does Nutrigreen contain Kelp & Rice powder?

Our Barley, Wheat and Alfalfa powders are 100% pure products. Because they have not been modified by juicing, there is no requirement for them to be balanced by adding other ingredients such as kelp or brown rice.

How long will Nutrigreen leaf powder keep?

Like many dehydrated products, Nutrigreen leaf powders, if properly stored, will not go "off" and potentially may keep indefinitely. However a few nutritional compounds such as carotenes, lipids and certain vitamins, such as Vit C, will lose their potency over time, so a maximum shelf life of three years is recommended.

How much and how often should I take Nutrigreen powders?

These products are a pure natural food so there is no hard and fast rule on how much you should consume. The rich, concentrated form means that you should only use a small quantity at first, say 1 to 2 teaspoons daily - then adjust according to your needs.

What is Jojoba?

Jojoba is a desert shrub from Central America whose large seeds provide a unique liquid wax (Jojoba "oil") that is arguably the best natural hair and skincare ingredient available.

I have sensitive skin, will Jojoba affect me?

Jojoba has been shown to be non toxic and hypo-allergenic. Because of its remarkable chemical similarity or sebum, our skin's own natural oil, Jojoba is considered ideal for sensitive or oily skins.

How long will Jojoba keep?

Jojoba contains no glycerides, so unlike other oils, will not become rancid. It is nonvolatile and can withstand constant heating at high temperatures. It has low acidity and demonstrates anti-bacterial properties. Consequently, Jojoba is an exceptionally stable product and properly stored may keep for years.
