There is not clear understanding among people on what makes one dose of wheatgrass juice. Even Medical practitioner advice to take 1 Glass or 1 Cup of wheatgrass juice.
So if we assume a cup to measure 200 ml and a Glass to measure 300 ml then it is way above the recommended maximum Dose of 120 ml pure Wheatgrass Juice.
30 ml of pure Wheatgrass Juice (without mixing of water in it) makes one Dose of Wheatgrass Juice. To juice one Dose of 30 ml we require 60 - 70 gm of wheatgrass depending upon the quality and freshness of the wheatgrass.
It is important to note that it is undiluted juice without added water.
The conventional method of wheatgrass juicing with High RPM mixer grinder requires lot of water to be added during juicing process.
Hence even a small quantity of 10 - 20 gm of wheatgrass when added with a glass of water and grinded in a Mixer Grinder results in green color liquid.
But this kind of diluted wheatgrass juice have too less nutrition in it to make any significant improvement to your health.
Most of the Juice bars and vendors selling juice uses same technique.
How to make Wheatgrass Juice?
Use Slow Speed Cold Press Juicer
It is important to use a Cold Press Slow Speed Manual Wheatgrass Juicer rather than the commonly used kitchen mixer grinder with a high RPM ( revolution per minute ).
Such high speed Mixers operate at 1000 to 1200 RPM, which breaks up the molecular structure of wheatgrass and oxidizes it’s nutrients and convert it to foam.
Wheatgrass juicers are available in two types i.e. manual or electric ones.
These wheatgrass juicer operate at a RPM that is below 80 and hence, don't result in loss of its nutritional contents.
