The Greens Plus team has received a lot of questions about which Greens Plus products are Gluten-Free. Since this is such an important subject, we wanted to answer a few frequently asked questions. If we’ve missed any of your questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to our customer service team at 1.800.643.1210 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q. Your products contain Wheat Grass and Barley Grass. Doesn’t this mean they contain Gluten?
A. While most Greens Plus products contain Wheat Grass and Barley Grass, and some also contain Barley Malt, this does not mean they contain Gluten.
Q. How does that make sense?
A. Wheat Grass and Barley Grass contain no Gluten, as we harvest the immature, chlorophyll-rich grass before it begins to stalk and produce the Gluten-containing grain. Barley Malt is sprouted before it is malted, which changes Gluten into other phytonutrients required for growth.
Q. What about the allergen claim that states “this product contains wheat”?
A. The wheat referenced in this statement is Wheat Grass. We are currently working on rewording our labels as we understand this can be confusing and want to alleviate any confusion or concerns.
Q. What Greens Plus products are considered Gluten-Free?
A. The following products are certified Gluten-free by the ABC Research Corporation by FDA standards (< 20ppm) due to the fact that NO gluten was detected (i.e., < 3ppm minimum detection limit):
