Rejuvelac Recipe

Rejuvelac is Anne Wigmore's famous drink made from soaked grains. A rich source of friendly bacteria to heal the digestive system.

Anne Wigmore's Rejuvelac


1/2 cup soft pastry wheat
6 cups spring or filtered water


  • Soak wheatberries in a half-gallon jar, covered with cheese cloth or nylon mesh screening, for 10-15 hours. Drain off water (do not rinse wheatberries) and let wheat sprout for 2 days. After this time, pour water over wheat sprouts (use about three times the amount of wheat sprouts.) Cover jar and leave at room temperature for 24 hours. Then pour off liquid Rejuvelac into another jar. Cover and refrigerate; it will keep for several days in this way.

  • The wheat sprouts can be reused 2 more times to make addional Rejuvelac. Start by pouring more water over sprouts, and proceed as described above.

  • For fuller-flavored Rejuvelac, you may use the following alternative method. Grind 1-day-old wheat sprouts by lightly blending them with a little water. Pour into a half-gallon jar, add remaining water, cover with a piece of nylon mesh or cheesecloth, and let stand for 3 days. Rejuvelac will be ready to use on the third day. It will have a pleasant smell and slightly lemony flavor when it is ready; it can be stored in a covered jar in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Ideally, however, Rejuvelac should be served at room temperature.

  • You can make rejuvelac with whole wheat, oats, rye, barley, millet, buckwheat, rice and other grains. My best results have been with wheat and rye

  • Warmer temperatures in summer will decrease the fermenting times by as much as a third

  • Rejuvelac can go sour, in which case you don't want to consume it. You can generally tell if the rejuvelac is okay by the smell and taste. It should be acidic with a pH less than 3.9. It is good practice to observe, smell and taste the rejuvelac periodically to become accustomed to the changes that occur (as it is for any fermented culture).

  • Rejuvelac should keep in the fridge for a week or more. Over time, it will gradually sweeten.

Drink it as a digestive aid, a detoxifier, and use it as a starter for other fermented foods such as raw nut and seed sauces, cheeses and essene breads

Rejuvelac contains eight of the B vitamins, vitamins E and K, and a variety of proteins, dextrines, carbohydrates, phosphates, saccharines and amylases. It is rich in enzymes that assist both your digestion, and the growth of friendly bacteria such as lactobacillus bifidus. Lactobacillus produces a lactic acid that helps your colon maintain its natural, vitamin producing facility. It also helps cleanse your intestinal tract, and reduce the build-up of sludge on your colon's walls
