Is Cream of Tartar considered okay on a Paleo diet?

I know it's a natural byproduct of wine making, but wasn't sure if it qualifies for a paleo diet. I realize our ancestors most likely didn't have it in their pantry, but is it one of those things that is acceptable because it doesn't actually do the body any harm or should it be avoided?

Ahhh...isn't the point of Paleo to eat whole foods, unprocessed, as close to our roots as possible? I don't think a paleo-ified lemon meringue pie is truly paleo

Using that logic, nor was 99.9999% of what we eat today.

It's up to you. Look as nutritionally equatable as prepared mustard less the sodium. http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/baked-products/5128/2

Edit: Actually, there's a substantial amount of potassium, but you're probably not deficient on the Paleo diet.

I think the question would be what you are using it in? Are there any true paleo recipes that would utilize it? I don't think Meringue was eaten by our ancestors...
