Dr. Perricone tells us the difference between Barley grass and Wheatgrass:
"There is very little nutritional difference between wheat grass and barley grass, although it is important to note that barley grass acts as a free radical scavenger that also reduces inflammation and pain, and wheat grass contains P4D1, a "gluco-protein" that acts like an antioxidant, reducing inflammation. It is also thought to be able to help the body attack cancer cells."

John, there are several things you can do. Mainly rinse your seeds extremely well before and after soaking. Keep in a cool place while growing,under 75 degrees if possible. Sometimes you can put a fan on the grass and that will help. If all else fails, the mold will rinse completely off so rinse the grass well before juicing. We have found that you can put a few drops of grapefruit extract in the soak water and that helps.
