Definition of the noun wheatgrass

What does wheatgrass mean as a name of something?

noun - plural: -

  1. a grass of the genus Agropyron

Alternative definition of the noun wheatgrass


  1. Young grass of the common wheat plant, Triticum aestivum, used freshly juiced or dried into powder for animal and human consumption.
  2. A grass of the genus Agropyron, commonly known as crested-wheat grass.


Wheatgrass is a food prepared from the cotyledons of the common wheat plant, Triticum aestivum. It is sold either as a juice or powder concentrate. Wheatgrass differs from wheat malt in that it is served freeze-dried or fresh, while wheat malt is convectively dried. Wheatgrass is allowed to grow longer than malt. Like most plants, it contains chlorophyll, amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and enzymes. Claims about the health benefits of wheatgrass range from providing supplemental nutrition to having unique curative properties, though few, if any, have been scientifically proven. It is often available in juice bars, and some consumers grow and juice wheatgrass in their homes. It is available as fresh produce, tablets, frozen juice and powder. Wheatgrass is also available commercially as a spray, cream, gel, massage lotion, and a liquid herbal supplement. Because wheatgrass juice is extracted from wheatgrass sprouts i.e. before the wheat seed begins to form, it is gluten-free.
