How to Make Rejuvelac

Types of Grains You Can Use to Make Rejuvelac

Rejuvelac can be made with a variety of grains, as long as they are sprouted first. Sprouting grains “awakens” them, and breaks down the outer protective barrier, making it easier for your body to access and absorb the nutrients inside.

The sprouting process also increases the protein content of grains by breaking down complex proteins into simpler amino acids, which are more easily absorbed by the body. This is especially helpful for those suffering from a leaky gut, as it can help repair your gut lining.

Additionally, the sprouting process increases the antioxidant content and reduces the gluten content in the grains. Long story short: you’ll want to sprout your grains before using them to make Rejuvelac. It’s a simple process, and we’ll show you how in a moment.

While Rejuvelac can be made from a variety of grains, some popular options include:

Wheat: One of the most common grains used for Rejuvelac, wheat provides a mild, slightly sweet flavor.

Rye: Rye is another popular choice, offering a slightly more robust taste than wheat.

Barley: Barley lends a nutty, rich flavor to Rejuvelac.

Millet: This gluten-free grain gives Rejuvelac a slightly bitter taste.

Quinoa: A highly nutritious and gluten-free option, quinoa provides a unique, slightly tangy flavor.

For this recipe, I chose to use quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa).
