Physics[GrassmannParity] - compute the Grassmannian parity, as 0, 1 or undefined, according to whether an expression is commutative, anticommutative or noncommutative
algebraic expression, or relation between them, or a set or list of them
The GrassmannParity command computes the Grassmannian parity of expression, that is, 0, 1 or undefined, according to whether expression is commutative, anticommutative or noncommutative. In this sense, the parity here is equivalent to the type.
Set theta as an anticommutative prefix (see Setup)

The parity of (3) is 0 despite the presence of anticommutative variables: a product of two of them is overall commutative
A commutative function of commutative and anticommutative variables: its parity is zero
A taylor expansion as well as an exact expansion for it respectively performed with Gtaylor and ToFieldComponents
Note that the expansion performed with Gtaylor does not preserve the parity of (5) while the one performed with ToFieldComponents does:
The coefficient of order zero of both expansions preserves the parity; the difference appears with respect to the coefficient of order 1
To understand this difference between the Taylor and the exact expansions performed with Gtaylor and ToFieldComponents see the expansion's definitions in the respective help pages
