I recently purchased a wheat grass kit to grow my own wheat

This answer was rated:

I recently purchased a wheat grass kit to grow my own wheat grass at home.
The kit includes Azomite minerals for the soil. I am wondering if there is an affordable method to test the nutrition of products I grow at home. I'd like to see how much I'm getting in Vitamin A, K, C, calcium, etc. from my home grown wheatgrass. I've long believed the tests for these products were fairly expensive and not available to consumers, but times are changing and amazing products are now available for home use.

Are any products available to test the nutrition at home?
Thank you for your question:

There are no "home" test that are going to give you the type of information that you need. There are labs that offer this type of testing. Here is one such lab.

This testing as you suspected is NOT inexpensive, and I'm not sure that most people would consider the benefits of any such testing worth the expense.
