How to enjoy Dru Barley Grass
Dru Barley Grass provides you with a shot of nutrition for the day.
You can mix Dru Barley Grass powder with your favourite juice or smoothie. You can take it with yoghurt or muesli, or mix it in dips or home-made energy bars. You can also sprinkle it on your food. Some people enjoy it simply stirred into water or milk.
Be careful not to add Dru Barley Grass to liquid or food over 49°C (120°F) as some of the nutrients may become unstable above this temperature. Therefore enjoy it in cold drinks or drinks at room temperature.
As barley grass is a very concentrated source of nutrients, we suggest to take small amounts, at least initially, to allow your body to get used to this powerful food. Start with ½ teaspoon daily, and increase to 1 teaspoon gradually over two weeks; more may be used depending on body weight, physical demands etc. Ideally you should take barley grass one hour or more before meals, on an empty stomach.
Store your Dru Barley Grass in a cool, dry dark place.

Organically produced young barley leaves have a tremendous ability to absorb nutrients from the soil. The nutritional peak is reached before the reproductive cycle, which is the time when the plant channels nutrition to the seed heads. The time of harvesting is carefully managed, as young barley leaves have a very different chemical makeup from that of the adult plant.
It is to be noted that at this stage the plant does not contain gluten, and therefore barley grass powder is suitable for people on a gluten free diet.
Shortly after harvest, the barley grass is dried, and thereafter milled to an exceptionally fine powder, keeping the nutrients active and intact. Dru Barley Grass grows in the sunshine at an organic farm in New Zealand and is Certified Organic by the Soil Association.
As Dru Barley Grass is 100% Organic, natural variation in colour of the product is a fact, as no artificial fertilizers are used to boost crop characteristics. Some lighter batches have a milder sweeter taste than the very green batches.
