Review: Geco Wheatgrass Powder

Friday, April 18, 2014
I have been trying to eat healthier and exercise a bit more recently, especially as the weather is better and summer is not too far away. One of the products that seems to come up when I am searching for healthier foods is wheatgrass - before this product I had never tried wheatgrass or anything similar so I definitely wanted to give it a go. Honesty as always, to check out my disclaimer, click here

I have the *Geco Organic Wheatgrass Powder (100g, 500g is £21.99). Firstly, the delivery was quick and I like the packaging - all of the nutritional information and more is on the back of the sachet. This product is suitable for vegans and vegetarians, I am the latter. Wheatgrass has a lot of goodies packed into it such a vitamins and minerals (for example: vitamin B6, vitamin C, iron and more). It contains a slightly larger number of calories than I thought it would but the whole pack (100g) contains only 285 calories. 

I have tried this wheatgrass powder with numerous juices (you can add it to smoothies too which I haven't managed to get round to). I have tried it with pomegranate, orange, exotic fruit and apple juice.  To use, you just add 1 or 2 heaped tablespoons into juice or a smoothie - I haven't used that much in one drink. I have been adding half a heaped tablespoon into my juice as the wheatgrass taste is a little strong. I do not like the wheatgrass powder with orange juice or apple juice but I really like it with pomegranate and exotic fruit juice - especially exotic fruit juice! 

Overall, I think adding wheatgrass powder to your morning juice or smoothies is a great way of getting some extra vitamins, minerals and other goodies into your body with little effort. While it really doesn't taste great with some juice flavours, it is really nice with pomegranate and exotic/tropical fruit juice. Also just eating and drinking healthily makes you feel good! ★★★★☆, 4/5. 

Have you tried anything from Geco Supplements? What are your thoughts on wheatgrass?

  2. Sounds intriguing! I'm all for anything that helps you sneak more goodness into your diet but I think the very fact I knew it was there would ensure I tasted it and thus disliked it iyswim?

  4. I love using wheatgrass and am always encouraging others to add it into their daily routine. Since I started using it, I haven't gotten sick in 2 years!
