Rejuvelacn Recipe


A simple fermented beverage made from living wheat sprouts used to improve digestion of food.  You can drink rejuvelac in the place of water or juice and the drink can be mixed in any recipe that requires water. Ann Wigmore used rejuvelac for 35 years and was convinced of its healing properties. It is best to consume this drink everyday.


Step by step to making good rejuvelac.

1 cup of soft wheat berries (also called pastry or spring wheat berries)
3 cups of water

1) Place 1 cup of wheat berries in a glass jar or stainless steel container. Do not use plastic.

2) Fill the berries with purified water* about 3 inches above the berries.

3) Place mesh on top of the container and secure with a rubber band if you do not have a sprouting jar. Do not use a a covered lid container, as the berries need air to breathe.

4) Allow the berries to soak for 8-10 hours.

5) Drain the water and rinse the berries well with purified water and drain once again.

6) Place the drained berries back in a clean jar and lay the jar at a 45 degree angle or lay the jar on its side with the mesh cover to allow for sprouting. Place the jar in a dark area for this process.

7) Rinse the berries in the morning and evening with purified water and follow step 6 until the sprouting tail is about the same length as the berry. This could take 1-3 days depending on the temperature of the room. 

8) Once the berries are sprouted, rinse them one final time in purified water.

9) Place 1 cup of sprouted berries in a large pitcher and add 3 cups of purified water.

10) Allow the mixture to sit for 48 hours at room temperature.

11) The mixture is now ready for drinking. Use immediately. The mixture will refrigerate up to 5 days. The berries are still good for a second batch.

12) To the same berries, add 2 cups of purified water and allow to sit at room temperature for 24 hours. Again, use immediately.

13) The berries can now be used to make crackers or bread in the dehydrator or can be discarded.

*Purified water is water from any source that is physically processed to remove impurities. I use reverse osmosis or natural spring water. If those are not readily available, you can use deionized water.
