Katie Coleman, Founder of Keep It Real Food Co.

The Keep It Real Food Company mission is to use the knowledge I’ve gained observing how foods affect my blood sugar, hunger, and energy levels to offer people with and without diabetes better food products. We set out to create low-glycemic, grain-free snacks and treats containing ONLY naturally healthy ingredients, and to build a brand of goods that customers trust to be healthy and delicious. – Katie Coleman, founder

Katie was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when she was 11 years old. She quickly realized that processed foods marked “low-sugar” or “sugar-free” still contained a sizable amount of carbohydrates (because of white flour or other high-glycemic ingredients), and that artificial sweeteners tasted fake and contained nasty chemicals. As an adult, she became increasingly skeptical of processed foods with long ingredient lists, many of which look like they were created in a lab.

Katie began baking at home simply using LESS sugar, and experimented with naturally low-carbohydrate ingredients. By monitoring her blood sugar levels throughout the day, Katie can literally measure the effect foods have on her body, giving her a unique perspective as she designs recipes for treats and snacks.

More and more, we are all realizing how important a diet of whole foods is to living a long, healthy life. This has inspired Katie to take action and create great-tasting snacks made of real ingredients that will make you happy inside and out.

Check out Katie’s latest project, Diabetes Unscripted, a new podcast focusing on managing diabetes through a low-carb paleo diet.

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.
