Who would have thought a little grass would make one of the most nutritious health-promoting juices?
Wheatgrass is chock full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and life-giving enzymes.
If you want to add this healthy juice to your diet, you will need one of the best juicers for wheatgrass.
Wheatgrass juicers come in 2 distinct types:
- Manual Wheatgrass Juicers
- Electric Wheatgrass Juicers.
Manual Wheatgrass Juicers
If you don’t mind a little hand-cranking, these are great little machines. You don’t need electricity to use them, which saves on power, and they are pretty compact, so they take up little room and are easy to take with you should you want to.
Another major plus is that they are much easier to clean than the electric wheatgrass juicer machines, so overall they are easier to use, minus a little cranking. They also provide excellent wheatgrass juice yields and produce hardly any heat.
The main disadvantage of these manual machines is that they are one-dimensional. You cannot use them for anything else.
So if you want one of the best wheatgrass juicers that can juice fruits and veggies too, then you will need an electric machine – specifically a masticating juicer. The other type of electric juicer – a centrifugal juicer, cannot juice wheatgrass at all.

Juicing Wheatgrass – How Do I Drink The Juice?
If you’ve never drunk wheatgrass juice, the taste will surprise you. Admittedly, it takes getting used to and can be compared to the taste of licorice.
The bitterness ensures that most people only consume juice in smaller amounts. Primarily the size of a shot glass. To make the taste more pleasant, you can always add apple pieces when juicing between adding wheatgrass.
That optimizes the taste. Of course, other types of fruit and vegetables are also possible as refined additions. The Angel Juicer also squeezes them effortlessly with a very high juice yield.
The best thing to do is to experiment with the taste. For us, apple juice made the most pleasant combination.
It is also essential that you not tip over wheatgrass juice while drinking it but only consume it in small, slow sips and limited quantities. A wheatgrass juice diet is not recommended as excessive amounts of the juice have a laxative effect.
