While its exact history remains a mystery, Wheatgrass can be traced back to ancient Egypt some 5,000 years ago. Prized for its healthful and invigorating benefits, the Egyptians were said to hold the dark green blades in the highest regard. Yet, despite its popularity in certain areas of Africa, Europe, and the Middle East, Wheatgrass consumption didn’t begin in the Americas until the early 1930s. In fact, much of its success can be attributed to the chemist, Charles Schnabel, who attempted to expand on the herb’s popularity by offering it for-sale by the can. As more and more individuals seek to improve their dieting efforts, Wheatgrass continues to climb the ranks within the general population and today it can be found in everything from shots and smoothies to tablets, juices, and supplements.
