Award for the Original Green Super FoodPines Wheat Grass was the first wheatgrass on shelves of Natural Food Stores in 1977. Only Pines grows its wheatgrass in glacial soils using natural rainfall. Pines harvests its wheatgrass at the special time once each year. That time was when the father of wheatgrass, Charles Schnabel, and other scientists found the plant to have the highest nutritional value. Pines is also the only green super food company that does everything from seed to shelf. In fact, Pines bottles it wheatgrass less than 100 yards from fields used by both Schnabel and Pines.
Pines Cares about the Planet and Refuses to Package in PlasticPines also follows Dr. Schnabel’s packaging standards that he established in 1937 by using amber glass bottles with special metal caps that allow removal of the oxygen from the bottle to prevent outside air and humidity from devitalizing the contents. Plastic containers and paper/plastic/foil packets do not protect green superfood nutrients, and because of oxidation, the contents from these kinds of packaging are often a very dull green, if not gray or brown, instead of the vibrant green of Pines Wheat Grass. In their selection of Pines Wheat Grass for a 2014 Taste for Life Essentials Award, Taste For Life Magazine stated that PINES Wheat Grass is a raw, gluten-free, dark-green superfood that is certified organic, non-GMO Project Verified and certified Kosher.
