Most veggie powders, like spirulina, contain a high amount of free glutamate. We made a low glutamate, lower oxalate, super green powder using lacinato (aka dino) kale. This is a great option for those picky eaters or little ones you’re trying to get more veggies in. Simply toss this powder into smoothies, sauces, baked goods, etc. for extra fiber and nutrition (magnesium, vitamins K, A & C, folate, etc). This super food will also help in detoxification, lowering inflammation, neutralizing free radicals and offers neuroprotection from excess glutamate. Any greens can be used or combined but we chose this type of kale because it is lower oxalate.
2 heads/bunches of lacinato (aka dino) kale
Wash and rinse kale. Pat dry and chop into 1” pieces, removing any extra thick stems. Place kale onto dehydrator racks or parchment lined jelly roll pans. Dehydrate at 135 or 150 (depending on how low your oven will go) for 12-15 hrs. Make sure stems have not retained any moisture. Once completely dry, pulse kale in a food processor until a fine powder like consistency has formed. Store super green powder in airtight glass container.
