Four Cool Growing and Harvesting Facts

“Why BarleyLife is Unique”

#1 Grown Outside

One of the reasons that the barley plants AIM uses are so nutrient-dense is because the grass grows outside in the varying weather conditions found in nature: sun, rain, extreme dryness, moisture, etc., which stimulate the production of protective nutrients. Many barley grass products are made from grass grown indoors in greenhouses. This is a huge nutritional disadvantage because there is no direct exposure to the elements.
In particular, cooler temperatures stimulate the production of antioxidants to defend against this “cool” element that threatens the life of the plants. By growing our barley crops outdoors, we are increasing nutrient levels long before the grass is harvested.

#2 No ‘CIDES’ Are Used

Additionally, our barley grass is grown in nutrient-rich soil without the use of fungicides, herbicides or pesticides. And all plants are planted close together so that there are no other competing plants in the fields of barley. Once the plant has reached the desired height, which is quite short, the harvest begins.

Harvesting takes place in the evening because, once again, temperatures are cooler than during the daytime. In low temperatures, the plants produce what could be referred to as natural antifreeze, pushing sugars and nutrients into the leaves to protect the plant and the cells from freezing.

#3 An Evening Harvest

The coolness of the evening also helps to preserve other nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals and live enzymes, until the barley grass is transported to the juicing facility, which fortunately happens to be very close to the crop fields. This means AIM harvests the barley grass at its nutritional peak and delivers it directly to the process that makes it a juice powder jam-packed with nutrients.

#4 Cooler Is Better

It is vital that the cool temperature remains throughout the processing stage because the cold slows the degradation of the grass after it has been cut. This applies especially to the live enzymes that would literally run out of control and spoil the juice powder if we didn’t keep them cool. Colder temperatures allow us to transfer the “fresh grass” taste and nutritional quality of young barley plants into every canister of BarleyLife. And that is a pretty cool accomplishment.
