When is jam not jam? When it is a superfruit spread! These jars caught our eye because they feature four flavours from the four corners of the world; North America, South America, Europe and Asia.
These tart yet sweet preserves are made from a blend of antioxidant-rich organic morello cherries, blueberries, wild cranberries and red grape concentrate. Lightly sweetened with organic fair trade cane sugar, it has one-third less sugar than traditional jams and jellies. Just one tablespoon provides 50 percent of your daily dose of vitamin C for only 30 calories.
North America Superfruit: Wild cranberries and blueberries blended with red grapes and morello cherries.
What berry combination could possibly be more North American? With a sweet but tart taste, cranberries and blueberries join forces to create this comforting and irresistible spread. Loaded with antioxidants and vitamins, cranberries and blueberries have been used therapeutically on this continent for centuries to treat a variety of ailments.
South America Superfruit: Maqui berries and passionfruit blended with red grapes and morello cherries.
Get in touch with your exotic side when eating this blend of maqui berry and passionfruit. Studies show that maqui berries, sourced from one of the most fertile areas in the world, have the highest antioxidant activity of any fruit.
Europe Superfruit: Pomegranates and black currants blended with red grapes and morello cherries.
Pomegranates are an ancient fruit with a rich history. Rich in vitamin C and packed with antioxidants, tart black currants balance out the pomegranate’s sweetness.
Perfect on a thick slice of artisan bread, this combo is for those who prefer fruits spreads that aren’t too sweet and pack a little pucker. Naturally, this bright blend also packs plenty of vitamin C and antioxidants.
Asia Superfruit: Both yumberries and raspberries are native to East Asia and have been used historically for maintaining and restoring health.
The Chinese know the yumberry as yang-mei. Once you’ve tried this brilliant red fruit, it’s easy to understand how the name yang-mei made its way to yummy and onward to yumberry.
