You will get various answers.

The hardline answer is absolutely "no". Protein isolates, "drinking your food", and highly processed foods are not paleo.

However, a softer line approach would be to look at the ingredients and see if you can fit it in, into an otherwise happily paleo-ish diet. Let's take a look:

http://www.gnc.com/product/index.jsp?productId=13164543

Other Ingredients: Protein Blend (Whey Protein Concentrate, Whey Protein Isolate), Cellulose Gum, Lecithin, Xanthan Gum CONTAINS: Milk and Soybeans.

Now, dairy products themselves aren't "hardcore" paleo, but we'll give that a pass. Soybeans are however a firm paleo-no.

So, hardline paleo or soft, you can probably choose a much better highly processed food product if you are going to use such things to begin with. If you do so, stick to looking for ones that have dairy or egg as a base.

Even better: adapt a diet and lifestyle that doesn't require the use of adult baby food.

A better option for protein and vitamins is Pumpkin Protein.

It is simply de fatted pumpkin seeds. Organic, no hormones, no industrial processing.

High in Magnesium (bone builder) and Zinc, as well as many other vital nutrients, iron, B vit. etc... It is a super food.

Here is where i get it. Great value.

Pumpkin Protein
