Most alfalfa products are made from hay that was left to dry on the ground for several days after being harvested. Pines alfalfa is harvested directly and is dried at low temperature within an hour after harvest. It is then kept frozen until ready for packaging in oxygen-free amber glass bottles.
As a result, Pines alfalfa powder is bright green. Only bright green alfalfa can provide the kind of nutrition discovered in the research by Charles Schnabel and other scientists.
