Jem is a mission-driven company. We craft premium organic products, representing the highest standard of sustainability and transparency; promoting a healthy, delicious world.
<>We craft premium, organic nut butters for the world market. All our ingredients are 100% OTC-USDA certified organic, Gluten-free, 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 much longer, but we know the result will be our creamy delicious, and nutritious Jem Butters.
From our Bend, Oregon factory we handcraft organic and sprouted nut butters in small batches, paying careful attention to each and every detail. We’ve perfected our sprouting, stone-grinding and flavor blending processes so that our final product retains the richest flavor, smoothest texture and highest nutritional content while being ridiculously delicious.
We source fair trade ingredients of the highest quality, including Spanish Almonds, which we hand-select for their exceptional flavor profile and raw integrity. Our ingredients are all 100% OTC-USDA Certified Organic, truly raw, and free from pesticides, gluten, dairy, soy and processed sugar, so you can indulge in Jem guilt-free.
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. Can you say small-batch? Absolutely.
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 per batch, but the results are special. We grind every ingredient so that no particle exceeds 20 microns, which is the point where the human tongue can no longer detect texture. Neat stuff.
