Wheat Grass refers to the young grass of the common wheat plant, Triticum aestivum that is freshly juiced or dried into powder for animal and human consumption. Both provide chlorophyll, amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and enzymes. Wheat grass is a humble weed that is a powerhouse of nutrients and vitamins for the human body. Diagnosis of microbial quality of these products is important. In this study, the microbial growth of the processed Oriens® Wheatgrass were done. The microbial tests such as total aerobic bacterial count, mold and yeast count, E. coli, Salmonella sp. and Staphylococcus aureus, were evaluated based on the national standards. Oriens® Wheatgrass was not contaminated with microorganism. The data indicated that Oriens® Wheatgrass had proved to indicate the better quality for consumer health.
