  • A Silky Smooth, Diverse Condiment: Jem Butter

    Jem Nut Butters are known for being delicious on a spoon, straight from the jar. But, also, really well known for being a sweet treat. On ice cream, a banana split, brownie, torte –– really any dessert. 

    But what about all the other meals of the day? Can you really indulge every night in Jem with your dessert? The truth is, yes, you can. Jem is made from sprouted nuts, super foods and super fruits –– stone-ground for hours, so it's not us that you're indulging in –– it's whatever you're putting us on. 

    Try ditching the indulging every once in a while, and find satisfaction in every meal: breakfast, lunch, and –– yes even dinner with Jem Nut Butters.  

    Breakfast: 

      • simple –– add Jem on oats, or on toast or an english muffin with warm butter or ghee. 

    Lunch: 

      • peanut butter and jelly? Try Jem + jelly. Even better, warm up your J+J like a panini to make it even more adult. 
      • apples and Jem as a side to any lunch or late snack, add brie and a drizzle of honey –– and you're in heaven. 

    Dinner: 

      • dip your pizza crust in Jem instead of honey –– trust us!
      • top sweet potatoes, yuca, or carrot fries in any Jem flavor blend –– sprinkle fresh parsley and rosemary on top with sea salt and pepper. It's delicious.

    We love finding new ways to enjoy Jem –– share yours with us! On Instagram we have a thriving community of foodies, submitting new Jem Recipes every single day. Tag your recipe with #JemButter for us to repost.

  • Ingredient Spotlight: Maqui Berry

    A small purple berry grows in the Patagonia region of Chile. We have chosen to blend this “Jem of the earth,” super berry in our organic sprouted almond spread for its extremely high antioxidant quality, specifically the well-known anti-aging flavonoids, anthocyanins, and its mild tart flavor.

    Certified Organic Maqui Berry Powder
    With a deep berry flavor similar to blackberries, maqui berries are a wild-grown superfruit native to Chile. There, the Mapuche people have been consuming maqui for centuries to help boost strength and stamina. The rich, purple pigment of this amazing fruit indicates the presence of antioxidants such as anthocyanins and polyphenols. Maqui berries also have calcium and iron, as well as vitamins A, C, B1, and B3. This little berry packs a lot of punch!

    Maqui Berry Powder has:

    • Vitamin A which may contribute to healthy immunity, vision, bone health and cell integrity
    • Vitamin C which may function as an antioxidant as well as contribute to healthy immunity and bone health
    • Vitamin B1 which may contribute to mental function and metabolism
    • Vitamin B3 which may help regulate metabolism and support normal cell growth
    • Magnesium which may contribute to normal bone health and immunity
    • Calcium which may assist in supporting strong bones
    • Potassium which may help maintain normal blood pressure in combination with a low sodium diet

    Patient as a mountain and wild as the seasons, Maqui and Camu Camu combined find their sweet and complex flavor in the richness of the wild soils of Patagonia and The Andes. Two antioxidant berries and raw sprouted almonds make this blend perfect for the adventurous at heart.

  • Ingredient Spotlight: Camu Camu Berry

    This “Jem of the earth” was harvested in Peru and selected by our team because of its nutrient dense qualities. Camu camu is very high in Vitamin C and loaded with antioxidants, bioflavonoids, amino acids, and beta-carotene. Camu camu is a bitter berry so you may get that kick at the end, go with it, and enjoy the benefits.  

    Certified Organic Camu Camu Powder
    An amazing superfruit, camu camu berries are an excellent source of vitamin C, which may act as an antioxidant to contribute to healthy immune function. Traditionally used by indigenous Amazonian people, camu camu also has vitamin B3 and potassium. These tiny berries pack a big punch to help aid in the body’s overall health & vitality.

    Camu Camu has: 

    • Vitamin C (144mg per serving) which may function as an antioxidant as well as contribute to healthy immunity and bone health
    • Vitamin B3 which may help regulate metabolism and support normal cell growth
    • Potassium which may help maintain healthy blood pressure in combination with a low sodium diet

    Patient as a mountain and wild as the seasons, Maqui and Camu Camu find their sweet and complex flavor in the richness of the wild soils of Patagonia and The Andes. Two antioxidant berries and raw sprouted almonds make this blend perfect for the adventurous at heart.

  • Ingredient Spotlight: Red Ape Cinnamon

    With just a few ingredients in each of our sprouted nut spreads, we choose the best of the best–– from almonds, to vanilla, and all spices. In our most beloved blend, Cinnamon Red Maca Sprouted Almond Spread, we have chosen to exclusively partner with Red Ape Cinnamon.  

    Here are 3 things we love about Red Ape, why we choose to partner with them, and what you should know about them:

    1. Red Ape Cinnamon believes that helping others is just plain “a good idea.” The kind, beautiful folks at Pearl Buck Center pack our cinnamon products for us. They are happy to pack products, and they do a wonderful job. Pearl Buck Center provides work and vocational training to adults with developmental disabilities.

    2. Red Ape selects only the highest quality, organic cinnamon with a minimum volatile oil content of 3%. Their cinnamon is processed slowly and carefully, the ol’ fashioned way. If cinnamon sticks are ground under high and fast pressure, the cinnamon tends to burn resulting in the brown cinnamon you commonly see on the shelf. If you take your time grinding the sticks, the result is a luscious, more flavorful red cinnamon – i.e. RedApe Cinnamon®.

    3. 5% of their profits get donated to organizations that protect orangutans and their habitat. How wonderful is that? Part of these funds go towards adopting orangutans. And, they want help selecting the orangutan they adopt this year. Click here to see the red babies you can choose from!
