JEM Organics is a gem in the world of nut butters. Based in Bend, this forward-thinking, plant-based, planet-conscious business creates ridiculously delicious, certified-organic nut butters using the finest ethically sourced ingredients.
“Our sprouting and stone-grinding process is what sets JEM apart,” says Jim Bednark at JEM. “We grind at slow speeds for optimal blending and nutrient absorption, which results in a smooth, creamy texture, superior taste and nutrient-dense nut butters. This handcrafted process takes longer, but we’re sure you’ll agree the results are well worth it!”
Enjoy each delicious variety, including their Good Food Award winners! The Good Food Awards honor outstanding American food producers. Awards go to those who push their industries toward craftsmanship and sustainability, while enhancing our agricultural landscape and building strong communities.
Be sure to try JEM’s 2021 award-winner, Salted Caramel Almond Butter, made with the perfect mix of sprouted almonds and cashews, flavored with vanilla and premium, locally harvested Jacobsen Sea Salt. Previous award winners include JEM’s Cinnamon Maca and Coffee Cashew.
Other taste-tempting varieties include Chocolate Hazelnut, Pistachio Ginseng, Maple Pecan Hazelnut, Cashew Curry Tahini and Cashew Cardamom Almond. Each amazing variety is certified-organic, vegan and gluten-free.
Did you know that sprouted nuts and seeds are easier to digest than raw nuts and seeds? It’s true! The soaking process releases their enzyme inhibitors, allowing your body to better absorb the nutrients. So, eat up!
