Patient as a mountain and wild as the seasons, Maqui and Camu find their sweet and complex flavor in the richness of the wild soils of Patagonia and Andes. Two antioxidant berries and raw sprouted almonds make this blend perfect for the adventurous at heart.
We soak our 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. We source only truly raw, non-irradiated and unpasteurized almonds from Spain.
Maqui Berry (ma-kee)
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 (ka-moo)
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.
This sweet fruit grown in Peru, Chile and Ecuador, is a great addition to our gourmet blend due to its low-glycerin 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 Palm Sugar
Coconut palm sugar is made from the sweet nectar of the coconut tree flower blossoms, coconut palm sugar is a pure and simple low-glycemic sweetener that provides the energy and mineral rich nutrition your body needs. Our coconut sugar is currently sourced from Big Tree Farms, from where the above information is referenced.
Grab your spoon! Spread on an apple, celery or carrot. Mix with yogurt and/or granola; Pour on coconut frozen dessert. Share with others, if you can:) And please share your favorite way to enjoy our Jem in a Jar.
