Barley grass is made from the immature leaf blades of the common barley plant, from which the barley grains used in cereal products are cultivated. When harvested within the early growth stages as the plant is preparing to enter the reproductive phase, all of the nutrients which have accumulated in preparation for the production of seeds can be extracted, from where they are stored within the young barley grass shoots.
Considered to be the first cereal grain cultivated by humans, the medicinal and food uses of barley date back to 7000 BC. It is reported that ancient Egyptians harvested the young barley shoots as well as the grains, and there are references to the use of the barley plant as a culturally important religious offering within the bible.
