Samanu is made from fresh wheatgrass and whole wheat flour. Samanu is the symbol of power and symbol of blessing and patience in the Nowruz Haft Sin. The Samanu is delicious and sweet, but it does not add any type of sweetener. The sweet reason is the combination of wheat germ with full flour that gives it a sweet taste. The nutrients and vitamins found in wheat and its buds have a high nutritional value.
