Embracing your roots is important. That’s why we never forget ours.

In 2012, I started a 30-day Paleo challenge; it changed my life. While my sleepless nights and fatigue disappeared, it didn’t stop my sweet tooth. I mean, I love a good chocolate-y snack! But when you’re practicing paleo, you can’t always find something to satisfy your craving. That’s why I’ve taken matters into my own hands to create my very own Paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free snacks with Base Culture.

I use passion, insight, and intuition to cultivate a mix of healthy, crunchy, salty, and sweet snacks for your mid-morning, afternoon, and pre-dinner needs that love your body back. I sourced the best ingredients that contain no preservatives or artificial sweeteners. My passion for deliciously sweet treats brings you wholesome ingredients for the best vibes only.

Sourcing the best ingredients, Jordann created a line of treats that took off like wildfire. Her Paleo CrossFit buddies, gluten-free friends, and even family with no dietary restrictions couldn’t get enough of these sweet snacks. That’s how Base Culture was born.

Everything we do is in reflection of these humble beginnings to remind us to stay persistent in our passion: Paleo goodies that keep you grounded in the best lifestyle on Earth.

How do your products need to be stored?

Answer: We suggest that our Sandwich Breads and Sweet Breads be stored in the freezer to ensure the longest shelf life of 9 months, or they can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Our Brownies are a bit of a different story. They last 9 months in the freezer and can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 months. Our Almond Butters can be stored at room temperature for 9 months or in the refrigerator for a year!

Are your products Non-GMO?

Answer: Yes, all of our products are Non-GMO certified through the BioChecked process, a leading third party certification program with expertise in areas including Non-GMO ingredients.

Where are your products made?

Answer: We make all of our products in our own manufacturing plant located in Clearwater, Florida, and we have a SQF level 2 certified facility. We are certified paleo, gluten free, grain free and are women owned.

What does it mean to be certified Paleo?

Answer: The paleo diet is a nutritional approach that focuses on eating only foods that are nourishing and unprocessed. It is rooted in foods that were available and eaten by people in paleolithic times, and excludes dairy, grains and legumes. Our products are Certified Paleo, the Paleo Foundation’s most popular and highest level certification for Paleo compliant products. Certified Paleo products are clean products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may also have some 21st century processing or packaging methods that help ensure quality and improve shelf stability.

How is grain free different than gluten free?

Answer: Our products are both gluten free and grain free, as grain free foods are excluded from a Paleo diet. A grain free diet eliminates all grains even those that are gluten free, like corn, rice, oats, millet and sorghum.

Which of your products are considered to be Keto?

Answer: The Keto diet is a very low-carb, high fat diet and involves significantly reducing carbohydrates across your daily food and beverage consumption. For snacks to be considered Keto, they must have 6g or less of net carbs (total carbs- fiber) per serving. Our Keto Bread, 7 Nut & Seed Bread, Original Almond Butter and Cinnamon Almond Butter are all considered KETO-friendly

Are your products peanut-free?

Answer: Yes, we are a peanut-free facility and have no peanuts in our products! Because all of our products are Paleo certified, we do not allow any peanuts in our facility, as they are considered legume which are not part of the Paleo diet.

Are your products dairy-free?

Answer: Yes, all products are dairy-free. Dairy is not compliant with the Paleo guidelines, therefore we cannot use it in any of our products.

What certifications do you have and are these the same across all products?

Answer: ALL of our products are; Paleo, Gluten Free, Grain Free, Kosher certified!

Where can I find your products? And where exactly are they in stores?

Answer: We are in over 8,000 locations across the US. Please check our store locator for a retailer nearest you. You can find our breads, brownies and sweet loaf breads in the frozen bread or frozen dessert aisle and our almond butters can be found in the nut butter aisle.

If I order online, how do you ship?

Answer: We use 2-3 day shipping for all online orders so the product gets to you quickly to prevent any spoilage. We do not ship orders placed after Thursday 12pm EST that same week. We do so in order to prevent any orders from spending an additional day in transit on Sundays when the post office is closed. All baked goods products are shipped frozen and arrive perfectly fresh!

How do I warm your products if they are frozen or refrigerated?

Answer: All products are already baked and ready to enjoy. Leave on counter at room temp for 15-20 minutes or warm in microwave or toaster oven. We often like to enjoy ours fresh from the fridge as the texture is quite nice!

What does that best by date mean?

Answer: The best buy date on our breads and brownies is the frozen storage date, meaning if you want to use that date it must be kept in the freezer. The date on nut butters is how long it will stay fresh at room temperature.

Why does oil separate in almond butter jars?

Answer: As a natural product with no artificial anything, oil separation is a natural part of the process and generally occurs after the first few months of production. Due to the difference in density, the oils will eventually migrate to the top. We recommend using a sturdy spoon to stir the almond butter upon opening it and as needed before each use. This way it will be spread evenly throughout and makes it much more enjoyable for you!

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.

 


Disclosures:

100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications.  We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 


Certified Paleo logo Certified Paleo:

Each certification program has a different set of standards.  Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.

 


Grain Free Gluten Free Certified LogoGrain-Free Gluten-Free: 

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues.  All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program. 

 


 

Keto Certified LogoKeto Certified: 

The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation.  Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.

The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
