- Ours barley grass powder is called a “straight powder”, which is a technical way of referring to the whole grass in a dry, pulverized form as opposed to a juice extract powder which, as the name implies, is just the juice. Either kind has its pros and cons but in a nutshell, a straight powder tends to have more nutrients and minerals and fiber than an extract powder. It’s only disadvantage is that it doesn’t dissolve entirely in water. It’s a great addition to fruit smoothies.
