Blood purification, liver detoxification and colon cleansing are the three important effects of wheat grass on human body. It chemically neutralizes environmental pollutants, enhances immunity, restore energy and vitality. Developed products of wheatgrass grass extracts were idli and cheela. The organoleptic evaluation of products was done by using (9-Point Hedonic Scale). The results of wheatgrass extracts based product for cheela, idli (T1) were best in case of all sensory attributes. Overall acceptability of experimental (T1) cheela and idle were 8.9 and 8.5 respectively.
