Paleo Diet Food Certification Program Launched

Specialty Food Association

Based on the science of Dr. Loren Cordain, the founder of the modern Paleolithic nutrition movement, the Paleo Diet has released a new food certification program with the goal of promoting accessible, science-based healthy nutrition, according to a statement by The Paleo Diet.

The Paleo Diet was founded on the idea that highly processed foods, GMO products, grains, legumes, dairy, and others are bad for human consumption because they were not part of the diet that humans evolved eating.

Trevor Connor, CEO of The Paleo Diet said in a statement, “The goal of our certification program is to clear up confusion in the marketplace and help consumers make healthier choices. Our new certification empowers consumers to know which foods are truly healthy."
