Our Origins


Founder-Photo.jpg

Origin Almond was sprouted...

to combat the consumption of excess sugar, calories, & carbs that is fueling the US obesity epidemic which is the leading cause of many health problems.  Our founder, Jake Deleon, experienced this firsthand coming from a childhood of obesity but eventually adopted a clean & lean diet which greatly reduced his intake of food with excess sugars—including fruit juices which often contain excess ‘hidden’ sugars.  

With his love of delicious food and passion for healthy living, he developed a line of cold-pressed almond juices which offer all the goodness & nutrients of cold-pressed fruit juices minus all the sugar & carbs. His promise: honoring the origins of pure whole foods—which includes using sprouted almonds, potent super foods and adaptogens, & zero added sugar.

In October 2015, Origin Almond produced and solid its' first product 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.

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.

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 almonds & 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 almonds, these super fruits provide those amazing benefits while lending a clean, bright tast.  Experience this amazing experience for yourself!
