At its most general, the Paleo Diet or Paleolithic Diet, emphasizes eating the real, whole, nutrient-dense foods that humans have evolved to eat. It does not include any processed foods, grains, or legumes, and, most of the time, dairy. When following a Paleo lifestyle, you'll mostly eat meat, vegetables, and healthy fats.
Unlike Keto, the Paleo Diet does not require counting macos in various foods, and it is not strictly low carb (although, since it eliminates grains, it tends to be lower in carbs than the standard American diet). Its emphasis is instead on eating unprocessed, nourishing foods that don't trigger an inflammatory response in the body.
In practice, the Paleo Diet often varies from person to person; some people still consume dairy on the diet and others avoid any potentially inflammatory foods, such as nightshades and nuts. Variations of Paleo include the Whole30 Diet and the AIP (Autoimmune Paleo) Diet.

The Paleo Diet is based around whole, unprocessed foods. You'll mainly want to eat grass-fed meat, vegetables, eggs, wild seafood, healthy fats, fermented foods, fruit, nuts, seeds, and spices.
Processed foods are the big no-nos here. Grains and legumes (including soy and peanuts) are widely avoided on Paleo, as well as processed sugar and vegetable oil. Most people following Paleo also avoid dairy products.
Honestly, it depends on your definition of Paleo. All of our products are sweetened with allulose, which while totally natural and non-GMO, has been isolated using an enzymatic process. (You can read more about it here.) If that still meets your definition of Paleo — great! You can enjoy all of our grain-free, dairy-free products, available here.
While Paleo and Keto meals may look very similar, the premises of the two diets are very different. The Keto Diet is ultra low in carbohydrates and requires monitoring macronutrients in order to be successful. Paleo is a dietary approach that emphasizes eating whole, nutrient-dense foods. Both, however, are grain-free diets.
