How to Make Rejuvelac

Rejuvelac is instant energy—the “Gatorade” of the health-conscious—taken for its full complex of B vitamins and its ability to develop friendly bacteria in the digestive tract. I drink it plain, and I also use it as a base for other beverages. You can also find this recipe in Karyn’s Soak Your Nuts: Karyn’s Conscious Comfort Foods and Soak Your Nuts: Cleansing with Karyn on pages 13 and 106 respectively.


  • 3⁄4 cup sprouted wheat berries (see How to Sprout)
  • 2 quarts water, plus more to blend wheat berries


  • Day 1:Put the wheat berries in a blender. Add enough water to cover the berries by 2 inches. Process for 20 seconds, or until the wheat berries are ground but still have some texture. (They should be grainy but not a fine powder.) Transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Add the remaining 2 quarts of water. Cover the bowl with a piece of cheesecloth or paper towel. Let stand overnight at room temperature.
  • Day 2:Stir the mixture with a spoon for 5 to 10 seconds. Cover. Let stand overnight at room temperature.
  • Day 3:Repeat Day 2.
  • Day 4:Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer into glass jars. Stored in covered containers, Rejuvelac will keep for 2 weeks.

    Hello Karyn’s!

    Should the finished rejuvelac be kept in the fridge or at room temperature, in a dark place, for up to 2 weeks? Thanks! <3

    Hello Karyn,

    It has been awhile. I miss your rejuvelac, so delicious and soothing. I will try making it on my own. Also find your pro-biotic to be the best.

    I am interested in CBD oil. I hear it can cure irritable bowel syndrome. I am not a meat eater but unable to eat many raw vegetables, even juicing greens can cause issues. So mostly eat steamed or partially cooked which works well.

    Also can use you advise on bones. I will be 63 in March and trying hard to keep from taking drugs to keep my bones strong. I brisk walk on an average of 4-6 days a week & work with weights 2x’s a week. Is there anything else I can or should be doing? Next dexa scan is in 2018 and this last one showed a decline, (oseteopinia) .

    I watched a documentary called “Food Choice” and was happy to see you in it. Good for you….thank you, Debra
