Amazing Grass is from farms not factories! Our family roots date back over 70 years of perfecting the growing harvesting, dehydrating and storage of organic cereal grasses – ensuring optimal nutrition in the world’s most nutrient dense Green SuperFoods. Amazing Grass is dedicated to creating the premium organic, plant-based nutrition products made from the finest ingredients Mother Nature has perfected.
The company started in 2002 in San Francisco, CA. Friends and Co-Founders, Brandon Bert and Todd Habermehl worked at a dot com start up. They shared a long commute, a passion for the outdoors and an active, healthy lifestyle. Brandon had been consuming greens for years, fortunate to have a plentiful supply of wheat grass, barley grass and alfalfa from his family’s farm in Kansas. After getting Todd to trade his morning cup of coffee for a green drink, he experienced increased energy, better digestion and became a believer. These green drinks became so popular with the co-workers, friends and families, Todd and Brandon decided to ditch their corporate jobs and start Amazing Grass. Their mission was, and continues to be, to help people lead healthier more active lives through better organic, plant-based nutrition.
Amazing Grass products help support healthy energy levels, immune function, body alkalinity, and a healthy digestive system while helping you achieve the recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables. Products include organic Wheat Grass powder, a complete line of alkalizing Green Superfoods available in ten functions and flavors, an ultra- premium Raw Reserve Greens and protein line, Amazing Meal plant based protein line, the revolutionary Kidz Superfood drink powder, and Green SuperFood nutrition bars. Amazing Grass offers a variety of flavors and functions to meet your lifestyle and nutritional needs.
