Recommended Daily Value of Iron should be 10-20mg/day. 10 for males and 20 for females... so i don't know which value it refers to. In the worst case, 5% of 20mg is 1mg of Iron.

I found this one from an italian website: Iron = Ferro. It says 25mg/100g = 2mg/8g. I couldn't find other datas, but it seems that your product is nice!
Just be sure that it's organic, and that it wasn't cooked/boiled or whatever prior to become powder.

25 mg in 100 grams is a very low amount. Patients generally take 1-2 grams of wheatgrass powder daily, so the amount of iron ingested is very small.

Hafiz bhai,
ask that GNC outlet's owner for gold membership card on which they give 20% discount on anything you buy to them... 20% of 4500 = 900 ,, after disocount of Rs.900 that product cost you around 3400 ...

Umair,

Is there any place other than GNC where wheatgrass is cheaply available in Pakistan? Why don't you get it shipped from puritan or others instead of getting it from GNC, because I believe GNC must be charging very high as they usually do in Eastern part of the world. In Saudi Arabia, GNC sells almost all the products at "twice" the actual rate they sell online.

Yes, it's fine to use. The amount of iron shown on the label is what is found in 100 grams, which is far higher than a daily dose would be.
