Soft Spring Wheat for making Rejuvelac
Dr. Ann Wigmore, in The Blending Book, states, "Rejuvelac is a slightly fermented wheat berry drink that is one of the most important items in the living foods lifestyle". She further states, "Rejuvelac plays a vital role in restoring health". Dr. Ann says, "Rejuvelac contains all the nutritional nourishment of wheat and is more easily digested. It contains the friendly bacteria that are necessary for a healthy colon and to remove toxins. It is also filled with B complex vitamins and vitamins C and E.
You can make Rejuvelac from any cereal grains, including barley, oats, rye, wheat, un-hulled millet, brown rice [any whole grain rice], and raw un-hulled buckwheat. The most common grain used for making rejuvelac is soft white spring wheat. For the best quality rejuvelac, make sure you, if at all possible that you only use fresh organically grown grains. Also keep everything clean! If using tap water make sure to boil it for 3-5 minutes, then cooled before use. Also your rejuvelac making container should be sterilized with boiling water.
