How to Make Rejuvelac

Authentic Rejuvelac
“Rejuvelac is one of the most important items in the Living Foods lifestyle. … It contains a very high level of enzymes that help you properly digest food.” ~Ann Wigmore


  • 1/2 C *Winter White Wheat
  • 4 C Purified non-chlorinated water
  • Large jar with ventilated (sprouting) lid or cheesecloth to cover
  • 14 C non-chlorinated water
  • Gallon jar (non-metallic)


  1. Soak *wheat berries overnight
  2. Rinse twice a day for 2-3 days, or until the berries just begin to sprout
    (watch for a tiny little tail)
  3. Rinse berries one final time and fill the jar with pure, non-chlorinated water
  4. Move jar to a warm spot away from sunlight for 24-48 hours, or until the rejuvelac takes on a slightly cloudy appearance with a fresh lemony scent.
  5. Pour off liquid and refrigerate.

Note:  Ann Wigmore always used her sprouted berries an additional two more times by repeating steps 3, 4, and 5.  Some of the more recent information out there encourages us not to follow this process, but you can decide for yourself.  As you continue reading my writings you will find that I don’t personally pay much attention to all the fear.


Rejuvelac will keep in the refrigerator for up to one week.

Who is Ann Wigmore Anyway?

Ann Wigmore (The wheatgrass guru) founded the Hippocrates Health Institute, and used Rejuvelac as part of her simple health regimen. Over the years many, many people recovered from life threatening disease while adhering to her simple diet.

I’ve been a Wigmore groupie for the majority of my adult life, and have read near all of her books (if not all).  Ann’s books are always an easy read, and a great start for anyone taking the plunge into the Nutritional Healing lifestyle.


*While Rejuvelac is traditionally made with wheat berries the wheat can be replaced with any grain of your choosing.
