Jem Superberry Maqui Camu Spread
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.
RAW ALMONDS – Jem’s soak their almonds in pink Himalayan salt crystals and dehydrated at a low temperature to insure the nutritional integrity and improve the digestibility of the almonds. Soaking also reduces the phytic acid, a substance that reduces your body’s ability to absorb minerals. Jem’s sources only truly raw, non-irradiated and unpasteurized almonds from Spain.
MAQUI BERRY – This 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.
CAMU CAMU BERRY – This “JEM of the earth” was harvested in Peru and was selected by our team because of its nutrient dense qualities. 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 bitter kick at the end, go with it, and enjoy the benefits.
LUCUMA – This sweet fruit grown in Peru, Chile and Ecuador, is a great addition to our gourmet blend due to its low-glycemic yet nutrient-dense capacity. Iron, niacin, calcium, beta-carotene and fiber are a benefit of this fruit, as well as its yummy maple-like flavor.
COCONUT SUGAR – Coconut sugar is made from the sweet nectar of the coconut tree flower blossoms, coconut sugar is a pure and simple low-glycemic sweetener that provides the energy and mineral rich nutrition your body needs.

Introducing Jem: indulgent, handcrafted nut butters made from organic nuts and superfoods! All ingredients are 100% OTC-USDA certified organic, gluten-free, non-GMO and vegan. These pure, quality spreads are bursting with flavour and nutrient-rich – each spoonful will blow you away.
Jem soaks all hazelnuts and almonds in pink Himalayan sea salt crystals before dehydrating them at a low temperature. Why is this important? Soaking nuts reduces phytic acid, a naturally occurring substance that reduces the body’s ability to absorb nutrients and minerals. Soaking also facilitates easier digestion. All nuts used are raw, non-irradiated and unpasteurized. For maximum flavour and nutrition, nuts are sprouted for 24 hours prior to dehydration. Next, Jem blends the nuts with superfoods to create rich, creamy handcrafted spreads that are irresistible and absolutely bursting with health.
The secret to Jem’s incredibly smooth texture and deep, robust flavour is its stone ground process. Every ingredient is ground at slow speeds to keep them raw, for optimal nutrient absorption and flavour.
Each spread uses organic coconut sugar to add a touch of natural sweetness. This low glycemic sweetener will not disrupt your blood sugar levels like traditional refined sugars. Best of all, it provides minerals needed for optimal bodily functioning.
