    Piggies and what they think of wheatgrass strips!

    Your morning smile!

    Our wonderful client Kandra is fabulous about having her piggies be our "guinea pigs" for any new products we need have "tested" in real life to see what the general consensus is on them ...

    Obviously based on this video, they are a runaway success and very much "Guinea Pig Approved"!

    Check your local health food stores and grocery stores to see if you can get some for your piggies as well. SO healthy and good for them in so many ways! One lady that also tried them out has a cat that is in Stage 3 Kidney Disease and is barely eating right now. She was thrilled that he dove right in to the wheatgrass strip and seemed to like munching away on it ...

    Enjoy!

    Re: Piggies and what they think of wheatgrass strips!

    Kandra and I had a discussion last night about the calcium component of wheatgrass because that is always such an important consideration with piggies!


    This table was REALLY interesting - comparing wheatgrass juice to spinach and broccoli with several important components analyzed ... I also don't know what the more accurate results would have been comparing actual wheatgrass to these 2 items but it does provide you with good overall data ...

    Table 1. Nutrient comparison of 1 oz (28.35 g) of wheatgrass juice, broccoli and spinach.
    Nutrient Wheatgrass Juice Broccoli Spinach
    Protein 860 mg 800 mg 810 mg
    Beta-carotene 120 IU 177 IU 2658 IU
    Vitamin E 880 mcg 220 mcg 580 mcg
    Vitamin C 1 mg 25.3 mg 8 mg
    Vitamin B12 0.30 mcg 0 mcg 0 mcg
    Phosphorus 21 mg 19 mg 14 mg
    Magnesium 8 mg 6 mg 22 mg
    Calcium 7.2 mg 13 mg 28 mg
    Iron 0.66 mg 0.21 mg 0.77 mg
    Potassium 42 mg 90 mg 158 mg
    Data on broccoli and spinach from USDA database.[8] Data on Wheatgrass juice from indoor grown wheatgrass.[4]
