Ranchline: Lamb Ch’arki

Ch’arki is the name derived from the Quechuan language of the Peruvian lncan Empire to describe the process of preserving meat in Pre Columbian days. The name Ch’arki then morphed into the Spanish word Charqui  and the process was carried northward as the Spanish Conquistadores began exploring North America. It is believed that Native Americans adopted the process from the Spaniards to preserve their meat products. The product of this process became known as Jerky and the Indians passed it along to the earliest settlers of America.

Ranchline gourmet Ch’arki is exquisite! Our Ch’arki tastes great because we only use the finest cuts of lamb. Notably, our gourmet Ch’arki is better for you. Studies have shown that lamb is rich in protein and low in fat. It is packed with nutrients needed for a healthy diet.

Today, our lambs are raised under the watchful eyes of Peruvian herders along with their dogs that live and work on our ranches in the United States. As it was some eight hundred years ago in the Andes Mountains of Peru, the rich history of the lncan Empire continues to exist in the modern day method of raising and producing our authentic gourmet Ch’arki.

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.
