Our Origins


Founder-Photo.jpg

Origin Almond was sprouted...

when founder Jake Deleon wanted to locally create & share the fresh-made daily treat he loved while journeying abroad.  He infuses fresh, cold-pressed almond milk together with health-boosting ancient superfoods to make a delicious & wholesome beverage.  His promise: honoring the origins of pure whole foods—which includes using raw sprouted almonds, simple organic ingredients and zero added sugar.

     In October 2015, Origin Almond produced and sold its' first bottle of fresh almond milk at the Collingswood Farmer's Market in South Jersey.  Until now, the team is working hard so that more people can experience & enjoy the goodness of lean, clean & cold-pressed plant goodness.

Our Difference


Cold-Pressed Made Better.

Origin Almond was sprouted after Jake, founder & chief almond squeezer, compared his first eye-opening sip of fresh almond milk to the disappointing imitation of diluted, additive-filled grocery almond milk.  People deserve a better option - fresh, wholesome food that's untouched by the artificial.

Our heart & mission is to make clean & healthy food craveable by showcasing the inherent goodness of pure ingredients.

1. Origins of Unadulterated, Whole Foods.

We are keeping food honest by spotlighting the goodness of clean & simple ingredients to help spark conversations about what we eat.  All our recipes start with a base of sprouted, organic almond milk which is never heated, or flash pasteurized to preserve its' freshness and nutrient content.

2. Clean & Lean Nutrition.

Sugar Begone! Did you know that the most popular cold-pressed juices can contain up to 40g of sugar per 8oz serving? That's more sugar than soda! All our products contain as low as 1g of sugar per entire bottle (zero added) along with high plant protein & fiber so that your body enjoys the fresh & healthy benefits of cold-pressed without the hidden excessive sugars.

3. Think & Drink Sustainably.

Sustainable & Responsibly Grown. Sustainable & Responsibly Grown. The average bottle of cold-pressed juice requires up to 260 gallons of water to grow the fruits & vegetables needed to make the drink.  All our products contain sprouted, organic almonds which are responsibly grown in the rain-heavy Spanish Mediterranean resulting in much less environmental impact.

FAQs

 
 

Q

What is cold pressure (HPP) and why do you use it?

A

At Origin Almond, we use Cold Pressure, also known as High Pressure Processing (HPP), instead of high heat, to extend shelf life & to help our beverages retain the maximum amount of essential vitamins, minerals & enzymes.  And since we never expose our product to high heat, their delicious fresh-pressed taste & nutrient content is kept intact!  To learn more about HPP, head on over to ColdPressured.org.

 

Q

I notice that there's separation in the beverage.  It looks weird, so why does it do this?

A

True food separates!  Without the use of artificial additives, nasty gums or thickeners (which we never use!) separation in almond milk occurs naturally, due to the varying densities of the ground almond, water, and other all-natural ingredients that we use. Simply shake well before enjoying!

 

Q

I noticed that all the formulas include organic lemon - why did you include that?

A

The unlikely but deliciously wholesome combo of fresh almond milk + citrus.  It's no secret that citrus fruits, like the lemon, are revered as nutritional powerhouses.  Their incredible detoxing& cleansing properties are supplemented with potent nutrients such as Vitamin C and Anti-Cancer flavonoids.  When combined with our almond milks, they provide these benefits while lending a clean, bright taste that balances the richness of raw almond.  Experience this amazing experience for yourself!
