I'm not sure about the grass in your picture: but

Apparently
"There are more than 400 kinds of grasses. All grasses are considered edible and healthy. The most common grasses that are eaten are oat, wheat, barley and other cereal grasses. Grass contains protein and chlorophyll, which is healthy for the body. Many grasses also contain magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium and zinc."
