This may sound like a stupid question: but what exactly are 'wheat berries'? I sprouted some in a jar, and after a few days ate them and loved them. Had I kept sprouting would these have become wheat grass?

You're right Marine Girly. I've bought Hard/ Winter Wheat Berries from my local healthfood store, sprouted them and grew them in my window. Wheatgrass! You can also by Kamut, Rye, etc. and grow grass from them as well. So, to answer your question, Wheat Berries are seeds. Waiting to become blades of grass. Or get made into Rejuvelac. Pick your poison.

yes thats terminology for wheat seeds
ive grown soft / hard / rye wheat
soft is most starchy / least tasty (the bigger lighter colored sees)
hard wheats a darker seed , not as big as soft . and tastse better
rye is a bit green and tastes best
and yes they grow into grass
barley and oats are much the same also being grasses / grains
whole foods markets sell organic rye berries .99 per pound ,
im eating them plain lately . i rinse off first then put in water for 24 hour
after 24 i strain and rinse twice a day for two days . by day 3 nice chewy rice type stuff
just started sprouting pea seeds same as wheat methiod and aiming to make a meal based on the sprouted peas mixed with sprouted rye , it has massive promise to me for a hearty raw vegan meal

I haven't tried sprouting wheat seeds. I have sprouted buckwheat. It is also tasty. It is also good sprouted and dehydrated. Last a long time and makes a great crunchy snack.

Did you know if you chew wheat berries for a while it will convert to a bubble gum? Try it. It's a good workout for the jaw and facial muscles too.
