Frequently Asked Q's
Are your products made in Australia? +
Yes, every single jar of Mayver's is made locally in Victoria, Australia from nothing but pure, natural wholefood ingredients that have simply been crushed, blended and bottled.
Do you add any sugar, palm oil, fats or preservatives? +
No, we never add palm oil, hardened fats, sugar, dairy, gluten or any other 'badditives' to our jars. All Mayver's products are made from 100% pure, wholefood ingredients that have simply been crushed, blended and bottled. Our Super Tasty Peanut Butters and Dark Roast Peanut Butters have a tiny pinch of sea salt added to give the peanuts extra zing; plus our Cacao Super Spread is naturally sweetened by the goodness of crushed dates.
Do you use Australian ingredients? +
Yes. Mayver's Super Tasty Peanut Butters and Dark Roast Peanut Butters are made in Victoria, Australia from at least 50% Aussie peanuts that are grown in Kingaroy, Queensland. All our other spreads are made from the finest, raw natural ingredients that we personally select from farms around the world. We try to use Australian ingredients wherever possible however sometimes there simply isn't enough Australian produce available which means we need to source it from other farms that adhere to our strict quality standards.
Do you use genetically modified ingredients? +
No, at Mayver's we only use the finest natural non-GMO ingredients in our range of wholefood spreads, making them better for you naturally.
Do you add any sugar or dairy to your cacao nut butters? +
No, we never add any sugar, dairy, gluten, palm oil or any other 'badditives' to our entire range of pure-state spreads. Mayver's Cacao Super Spread is naturally sweetened by the goodness of crushed dates making it perfect for vegans or anyone that is lactose intolerant. The almonds in our Almond Cacao and Coconut Spread give a delicious natural sweetness to it's flavour whereas our Organic Peanut Butter & Cacao is more peanutty than chocolate (think 90% dark chocolate)!
Why is there oil on top of the jar? Do you add oil? +
No, we don't add any oil, palm oil or hardened fats to any of our products. The oil you see on top of our jars is the natural "good" oils that are expelled from the nut or seed during the crushing process. A lot of other manufacturers add hardened fats (like palm oil) to stop the spread from separating which makes it easier to spread. The oil separating on the top of Mayver's jars is a sign that our products are 100% pure-state - being made from just pure wholefood ingredients that have been crushed, blended and bottled.
What are pure-state foods? +
