While you may have only seen the word “moringa” in the last few years, how much do you know about it? How does the superfood moringa compare to other superfoods like wheatgrass?
Moringa vs. Wheatgrass: A Recap
Morina has been showing up strong in the Battle of the Supergreens, a lively series where we compare supergreens with each other. The time has come to pitch moringa against that legendary foe, wheatgrass.
For years, wheatgrass has been the poster child of high-energy healthy, active lifestyles. If you had super-health crazed parents, maybe they even forced you to down wheatgrass shots as a kid.
Let’s take a look at the nutritional content of 10g of Kuli Kuli’s moringa powder vs. 10g of a leading wheatgrass powder.
We knew going in that this was going to be a hard fought battle, but based on moringa’s spotless record so far, it’s no surprise that it’s come out on top once again. Moringa beats out wheatgrass in key categories like iron, fiber, calcium, and vitamin K. It also holds its own as a complete plan protein with all nine essential amino acids. Furthermore, the fact that one 10g serving of moringa powder will give you half of your daily recommended iron should be enough to get your attention!
Wheatgrass predictably takes home wins in the vitamin A, vitamin C, and potassium categories, but this isn’t enough for it to hold an edge over moringa. Lots of people consume moringa as part of a smoothie or nutritious meal, which can provide these particular nutrients. For example, you can enjoy the delicious benefits of moringa in our #moringainspired Moringa Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie.
The nutritional benefits of moringa make it something of a miracle tree. From its anti-inflammatory benefits to its complete plant protein, moringa offers a natural way to reduce blood pressure, you really can’t go wrong.
