Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara
Founder of Green Foods Corporation
Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara, a world-renowned scientist, inventor, and entrepreneur, graduated from Kumamoto University in Japan as a research pharmacologist. Early in his career, Dr. Hagiwara developed several highly successful drug formulas, becoming the owner of a leading Japanese pharmaceutical company.
As Dr. Hagiwara grew aware of the problems caused by the many chemicals used in modern medicine, he vowed to devote his life to a natural nutritional approach to health. After years of research on over 200 types of plants, including fruits, vegetables, grasses, and herbs, he found that "young barley grass is one of the most nutritionally balanced foods in nature."
In order to capture and protect the delicate nutrients and enzymes in freshly harvested young barley grass, he developed a unique juice extraction and spray-dry process that earned him Japan's prestigious Science and Technology Award. This process makes possible our powdered, nutrient-rich Green Magma,® first developed in Japan in 1969.
