Is wheat grass safe to drink in a powdered form? And is it less nutritional?

Cows like it!: But they prefer the natural form. I don't think wheat grass has any "special" nutritional value in any form. It helps the seller much more than the buyer/user. Honest. There are many claims of healthy benefits ranging from heavy metal detoxification to preventing cancer. I think this is just a relatively (bad tasting) harmless form of modern snake oil. Sorry.
