    In a word: no. It's made of a grain (wheat) and it's a juice.

    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    Yes.


    Grains are the seeds of plants, which are protected by anti-nutrients to discourage animals from eating them. The young plants, which haven't yet developed seed are fair game - and with wheat grass, importantly it's gluten-free.


    Juice is not primal due to it's high sugar content. But at the amount that a person is going to drink a serving of wheat grass juice, it's only 1 or 2 grams of carbohydrates.

    If you have celiac disease or gluten intolerance, you still might want to watch out with wheat grass. Sometimes the seeds get into the juice, and sometimes some seeds touch and contaminate the grass. I have celiac disease, and I found that I could not handle wheat grass. Otherwise, if you are okay with gluten, or less sensitive than me, it's probably fine.

    In the name of all that is Grokky, why????????


    It's flippin' GRASS! We cannot eat grass! It's mostly cellulose, which we can't digest. Now now, not 2 million years ago. And Buffalo, I'm sure there is no sugar in this product unless it is added.


    Good Grok!

    @buffalo: It's still not Primal.
