The juice from young barley grass is rich in vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll and mucopolysaccharides
Just Barley is planted on 2,800 acres of organic farmland on an ancient volcanic lake bed over 5 000 feet high in the mountains of South-eastern Utah. The high altitude of the cropland contributes to a significantly higher protein content. Annual crop rotations and the fact that the crops are re-mineralized by the season run-off from the surrounding hills assure maximum nutrition in each harvest. The leaves are harvested, rinsed, juiced, and dried "on sight" at only 88 degrees F. Yielding a completely non-pasteurized product which retains the "live" qualities of the vitamins, minerals and enzymes.
