Our Origins


Founder-Photo-2.png

Origin Almond was sprouted...

to combat the #1 enemy to public health: excess sugar. We believe the first step to better health is reducing excess sugars—esp. hidden sugars found in so-called ‘healthy’ fruit juices. Our founder, Jake Deleon experienced this firsthand from his struggle with childhood obesity to now living a healthier lifestyle which includes reducing sugar intake.

In October 2015, Origin Almond produced and sold 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 minus the sugar!

Origin Almond is a minority founded, owned, & operated small family business. We are a certified MBE by the NMSDC.

Our Values


Juice, made better.

Origin Almond exists to reignite the love for juices. All our varieties offers the delicious fresh taste of juice. Except we swapped the sugar and carbs with the plant protein and good fats your bodies need.

We work towards this mission with these key values:

3-Principles-Series-OriginAlmond.jpg

1. 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 almonds which are 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.

We proudly use Zero-Waste Almonds! Every part of the harvested almond is used or recycled: the outer hull becomes an alternative food source for cattle, the inner shell is used for biofuel, & we harness the liquid essence of the almond seed itself as the base for our juice products.

Lastly, we upcycle the remaining by-product into a 100% plant-based skincare line - Clean as Kale.  We invite you to check our beautiful solution to food waste!

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 occurs naturally, due to the varying densities of the almond, water, and other all-natural ingredients that we use. Simply shake well before enjoying!
