JEM is dedicated to handcrafting raw, organic, gourmet, specialty foods of the highest quality and nutritional integrity using practices that promote sustainability, fair trade and health. Our premier, artisanal nut butters & spreads are free from gluten, dairy, soy and processed sugar, proving that decadent food can be enjoyed guiltlessly. We craft premium, organic foods for the world market. All our ingredients are 100% OTC-USDA certified organic, non-GMO and vegan. We have voluntarily hired third party labs to test random samples of our JEM’s for any hidden pesticides, harmful heavy metals, microbes or pathogens. Our JEM’s have come up clean every time. Just for fun we also tested for any hidden gluten, of which, there was none. Our GMP (good manufacturing practice) is informed by our commitment to raw, nutrient-rich foods. We closely monitor the temperature and speed of our stone grinders and dehydrators. This means everything takes longer, but we know the result will be our creamy delicious and nutritious JEM.
For maximum flavor and nutrient absorption, we sprout our nuts for 24 hours. During this sprouting process, phytic acid and enzyme-inhibitors are removed making the seed easier to digest and assimilate. After the nuts have sprouted, we dehydrate them, which takes another 24 hours in preparation for grinding and blending.
Stone-grinding is the secret behind JEM’s smooth texture. We grind at slow speeds to keep the ingredients raw, for optimal nutrient absorption and flavor. The process can take up to 48 hours, but the results are special. We grind each ingredient so that no particle exceeds 20 microns, which is the point where the human tongue can no longer detect texture.
We blend our nut butters into four flavors inspired by superfoods:
