Q. Are wheat grass and barley grass chametz?
A. No. Only the wheat or barley berry/grain can become chametz when mixed with water, but the grass/stalk on which the grain grows cannot. It is noteworthy, however, that wheat and barley grass are typically sold in a dried form, and we would not be able to recommend such a product for Pesach without verifying that no chametz was dried on the equipment used for drying the grass.
