Michael Pan, Founder

Our Story

It all started during a trip to Borneo, Malaysia where founder Michael Pan visited family he hadn’t seen in years. Little did he know he would discover a recipe that had been in his family for decades.

He learned that many of his family members are vegetarian Buddhists. Because of their diet, they craved vegetarian snacks that not only tasted great but also had a satisfying texture.

They found that mushrooms were a great replacement for meat. Not only did it have great texture, but the mushrooms were natural sources of vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants.

"Traveling to Malaysia was partially to get to know my family's culture, my roots. They fed me like crazy and on one visit, my cousin put a bowl of food on the table that I loved. I asked if it was pork and he said no, this is our family's mushroom jerky."

From Malaysia to the Pacific Northwest

Michael knew that his family had something special that needed to be shared with the rest of the world.

Even while working full time, Michael's enthusiasm for developing the product never waned. For months he developed, tested, and iterated on his family recipe from his kitchen in Washington.

Introducing Pan's Mushroom Jerky

In 2017, Michael launched Pan's Mushroom Jerky with an updated recipe and clean, simple ingredients. Pan's is available in four flavors, all inspired by his original family recipe and their desire for a satisfying plant-based snack.

Today, Pan's Mushroom Jerky is produced in Portland, Oregon and is available in over 750 stores in the United States. We are so grateful for all of the support we've received, and we hope you fall in love with this unique and tasty snack just as I did!

From our family to yours,

- Michael Pan and the Pan Family

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.
