Why Juice Powder Concentrate Is Superior to a Leaf Powder

When selecting a green barley juice powder, you may not think there is much of a difference between the brands.  It’s all just a matter of an attractive label design, some fancy marketing blurbs on the packaging and a price tag.  The ingredients seem similar, and surely, any old canister will do.

That is simply not true.

If you’re in the market for a green juice, it’s because you are, in some way, concerned about your health. You’re run-down, groggy, under the weather. You’re just not feeling like yourself, and you want to improve your life with better nutrition.

Nothing is more important than your health because without your health, you have nothing important. Therefore, selecting the juice powder that offers optimum nutritional value should be of paramount concern. That’s why BarleyLife should ultimately be your choice.

BarleyLife is a juice concentrate. The young, fresh leaves of barley are juiced prior to the concentration process.  This process is done quickly and at low temperatures to preserve the important enzymes found in live plants, and it protects the product against the oxidation process as well.Juice.jpg

A leaf powder stands in stark contrast to our juice concentrate. The leaves are first ground up and then dried, a technique that allows cellular processes to reach their lowest energy state and deactivates enzymatic activity, especially if heat is used to speed things up. The drying mechanisms may also  incorporate a cyclonic air stream which can yield a very fibrous, grit-filled product.

It is also much more difficult to obtain nutrients through whole leaf powders due to the body’s inability to digest cellulose. No matter how fine the leaf powder is ground, some nutrients will be lost during digestion. Additionally, with a whole leaf powder, you get a one-to-one ratio of leaf to powder. For instance, if you eat a leaf, you get one leaf’s worth of nutrients. With a concentrate, it’s, well, concentrated which means you get more nutrition per ounce.

Oxidation has already ravaged the whole leaf powder of this competing brand.  Notice the yellowing.

The reason why some companies choose to sell leaf powder is because it is cheaper. They can produce quite a lot quickly, inexpensively and easily. It allows them to grow their barley leaves large, right up until just before the grain head forms and then get the most volume from those leaves. This is great for the company because it lowers the cost of their product, but it also lowers its nutritional value, longevity and enzyme content. (Older barley leaves are less nutritious than young leaves).
