What would you like to see on the shelves? New Paleo Products

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created March 25, 2013 at 1:12 AM

Hi all

After a few years of working under fluorescent lights and in circulated air at an office job I've decided I want to start my own business.

My inspiration is despite peoples best efforts to eat a healthy diet, if things are not convenient then they are less likely to stick to it (apart from hardcore paleohackers!). People are busy and stressed and will power goes out the window. I want to make some products that are easy to grab and are great for you, and leave you feeling great too. Of course they would all be paleo as well.

I'm thinking things like coconut oil/flour based treats, jerky, nuts and nut based products, gronola etc.

I have some good ideas but would love to hear of any prodcuts you think would be great to see on the shelf?

Thanks all!

Nor in the Lindt 85%. Many chocolates by Theo appear to be lecithin-free. Also Madecasse, but they're expensive.

The soylent guy is trying to buy pure chemicals and combine them into a complete nutritional package. I assume that a paleo version of this would start from whole foods and try to do the minimal processing necessary to get them into a stable and convenient form.

It's a lot of work to do it yourself and not everyone has the equipment. If you could make competitively priced meals you would definitely have people to buy it!

With the bone broth example the suggestions here are roughly with problems. How do you ship bone broth, if your just doing local are there enough locals around, etc. Also if you can't ship it will people tale the time to visit your store for it, it takes less time to to make broth then to drive to store for it. Again, there have been no good suggestions besides jerky which farmers already do. Every example is either already in production like the nuts or is difficult to move or make cheaply. You can even get freezer dry paleo meals through a site already if I remember.

For trail mix, you might have to experiment to get a shelf-stable form of bacon that doesn't turn greasy, crumbly, or chewy. And then have it tested for oxidation or other undesirable changes. I'd be interested in the results!

I wouldn't be surprised if unflavored coconut yogurt turned out to be vile, but it's worth experimenting! I'd also note that the "unflavored" almond and coconut yogurts I've seen only add as much sugar as you'd naturally get in dairy yogurt, sometimes less, so it's not quite as objectionable as "sweetened" makes it seem.

Nuts are a very common snack item in convenience stores. They've saved my nutritional butt more than once when I was really hungry! They're usually flavored and roasted in peanut oil... but that tells me that the model for selling them is already there, and you wouldn't have to blaze new trails in order to insert a new line that's slightly more expensive and made with better quality ingredients.

I also just realized: from the perspective of the person who wants to start a business, it doesn't matter whether the people who think they don't have time to make bone broth are being foolish. It matters whether they're willing to pay someone to do it for them. (though unconcentrated broth is going to be expensive and a huge pain to ship and store).

The other responses to this question, and the enthusiastic comments on them, seem to suggest that you're wrong about the lack of a market. I can't tell whether the respondents meet your criterion for seriousness, but they're definitely interested. And we already know that paleo eaters are willing to pay a very high premium for the foods they want, so there's probably an advantageous price point to be found.

Also, you may have seen this question (http://paleohacks.com/questions/8115/soy-lecithin-in-dark-chocolate), but there seems to be a consensus that the soy lecithin in chocolate doesn't need to be a concern, unless you have a bona fide soy allergy. It's a fairly refined product and the amounts used are tiny.

@greymouser: I have here a Lindt 90% supreme dark bar with no soy lecithin in it. I thought the other fine chocolates in my collection were also soy-free, but I'm surprised to see that they almost all contain a little (except the Pacari, which uses sunflower lecithin).

My logic, as well as answers I've seen elsewhere on this site, suggests that protein isolates aren't affected by what the animal is fed. That mostly affects the fat. If you want to make a less paleo-unfriendly protein isolate, the bigger difference is in the temperatures and chemicals you use to process it.

Try [Justin's Hazelnut Chocolate spread](http://www.amazon.com/Justins-Nut-Butter-Chocolate-Hazelnut/dp/B002JG5TVS). I think it's even better than nutella -- not in a holier-than-thou way, just better! It's not really paleo, but at least the ingredients are real hazelnuts and chocolate instead of sugar and industrial shortening with some hazelnuts and cocoa powder for flavor.

i realise this, however im looking at making packaged convenience foods that people would grab instead of crap, and hopefully people who are hardcore paleo would like it too. its hard for people who are stressed and time poor to grab food from scratch and prepare it, and also enjoy the taste. just looking for some inspiration here or some ideas i haven't already thought of.

I think these are all awesome ideas. As a mom of 4, 100% paleo, there are just some times that life catches up and people need to EAT! Of course there are fresh alternatives to these, but when you are feeding 6 people the fresh runs out real fast....

I would love to see:

-real paleo bars, as mentioned above (without the dates like larabars - lower sugar)

-frozen meals. I know, this is so not paleo, but there are times it would be good: last minute traveling (like oops, soccer tournament this weekend 2 hours away, leaving in 30 min!), sickness (4 kids barfing and I just need something to eat fast to keep me going), visiting the in-laws (no room in the fridge for all the fresh food I would need, but I could maybe squeeze a few meals in the deep freeze).

-paleo breakfast/snack packs for on the go

And if you are REALLY ambitious:

-a drive thru fast food style restaurant that offers FRESH food, paleo style. Without all the compromises. I would pay so much money for this!

Paleo ice cream is something I've always wanted. But the likely low volume and costly logistics of refrigeration would probably make this unprofitable. Unless you can do it like mainline ice cream makers, which is to ship a powdered ice cream mix to local stores. Which would be not as Paleo.

The other thing is a liquid all-in-one meal substitute. A "V8 plus meat". Has to taste good. And preserve on the shelves without preservatives. It's possible no combination of atoms exist that meet all the requirements. Good luck.

I think your business model is somewhat flawed. Serious paleo people won't want your prepackaged paleoish food. In addition, people who ate semi paleo will have no problem cheating on some non paleo food. Pls, your costs will be high and that will further surpress your market. In addition there are numerous problems with some suggestions. Trail mix that isn't in oils. It already exists. Same for chocolate without soy. Chips in coconut oil will be hard to profit from unless you charge a ton. to make a profit off. Plus do you have the market to sell locally, or will you have to ship these items. You will be competing with websites that offer free shipping.

Lastly, bone broth...don't have the time? Whaaa...theres nothing to do but heat it up, lol. It's not something you need to stand over.

A walnut/almond dispenser that dispenses fresh 1 oz packs for daily purchase. Perhaps to be positioned by the cash register next to chocolate and gum. Not a food, but whatever.

In a healthy society, every supermarket and convenience store might have this.

Nuts are a very common snack item in convenience stores. They've saved my nutritional butt more than once when I was really hungry! They're usually flavored and roasted in peanut oil... but that tells me that the model for selling them is already there, and you wouldn't have to blaze new trails in order to insert a new line that's slightly more expensive and made with better quality ingredients.

  1. Trail mixes that do not contain seed oils and sugar laden dried fruits.
  2. Coconut/almond milk without additives.
  3. Something like a larabar with a but butter base instead of dates.
  4. Different veggie chips and maybe like sweet potato chips using coconut oil.
  5. Sugar/nitrate/soy free jerky.
  6. Soy free dark chocolate.

Good luck!

Plenty of soy free dark chocolate in Europe. Lindt's 85% and 99% is probably available in the States.

Also, you may have seen this question (http://paleohacks.com/questions/8115/soy-lecithin-in-dark-chocolate), but there seems to be a consensus that the soy lecithin in chocolate doesn't need to be a concern, unless you have a bona fide soy allergy. It's a fairly refined product and the amounts used are tiny.

@greymouser: I have here a Lindt 90% supreme dark bar with no soy lecithin in it. I thought the other fine chocolates in my collection were also soy-free, but I'm surprised to see that they almost all contain a little (except the Pacari, which uses sunflower lecithin).

Nor in the Lindt 85%. Many chocolates by Theo appear to be lecithin-free. Also Madecasse, but they're expensive.

@Wisper AFAIK, only the 99% Lindy bar is soy free in the US. The rest have soy.

Nutella that tastes exactly like nutella :) .. but thats pretty much impossible. Not even no-name nutella comes close. And coconut paleo bread that tastes like actual real bread too to spread it onto :) hehe. maybe in willy wonka world it could exist.

oh yeah and ketchup that tastes exactly like heinz ketchup ..(ive know of establishments that switch out the heinz for cheaper fare and put it in heinz bottles.. AND I CANT BE FOOLED.. HEINZZ.. there IS NO OTHER KIND!

Try [Justin's Hazelnut Chocolate spread](https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&ved=0CDkQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FJustins-Nut-Butter-Chocolate-Hazelnut%2Fdp%2FB002JG5TVS&ei=VtRPUe_KJqnf2QWOi4GACw&usg=AFQjCNGu6ZU20KAVZ1cZV_7qbpcAAGMhtA&sig2=byOheeeY0L_2zwoMpkEw7w&bvm=bv.44158598,d.b2I). I think it's even better than nutella -- not in a holier-than-thou way, just better! It's not really paleo, but at least the ingredients are real hazelnuts and chocolate instead of sugar and industrial shortening with some hazelnuts and cocoa powder for flavor.

There's always rice cakes. Or flourless crepes. Or salami. Or out of the jar with a spoon. In moderation of course.

I really miss tortilla chips. I've been making homemade, baked plantain chips to serve my taco dip as a substitute. They are really good, but kind of a pain in the ass to make. I would love to be able to buy them. Our store carries plantain chips, but they are fried in vegetable oil.

Good Luck with your business!

Bone Broths To Go! I struggle to find time to make bone broth regularly. You could make different varieties, with a FODMAP-free version for those of us sensitive to onions & garlic.

What is everyone's thoughts on dark chocolate covered bacon? point of difference as part of a product range! also, bacon in trail mix?

72cf727474b8bf815fdc505e58cadfea

For trail mix, you might have to experiment to get a shelf-stable form of bacon that doesn't turn greasy, crumbly, or chewy. And then have it tested for oxidation or other undesirable changes. I'd be interested in the results!
