Official Certification of the Paleo Movement™
ABOUT THE PALEO FOUNDATION
Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of helping Paleo Diet Adherents easily identify products that met the basic tenets of the diet. Since then, thousands of products have been certified by the organization.
The Paleo Foundation has recently expanded to offer two publications: a Paleo Consensus Report (PCR) to give the official status of some controversial food items, and a Paleo Trends Report (PTR) to educate and inform industry professionals about the burgeoning Paleo category.
Certified Paleo, the most popular of the Paleo Certification programs certifies products that contain Paleo Diet ingredients, but have some 21st century processing methods allowing for shelf stability.
The Paleo Friendly Program allows for products that are generally regarded as gray-area products such as kombucha, dark chocolate, and even grass-fed dairy. Some restrictions apply.
The PaleoVegan Program requires that products meet Paleo criteria, but must also contain no animal products, or by-products such as honey, or colorings derived from insects.
The Paleo Approved Certification Program certifies Farms and Ranches that meet requirements for species-appropriate diet, and environmentally beneficial husbandry practices.
