Frequently Asked questions

What is The Perfect Paleo Powder™?

The Perfect Paleo Powder (PPP) is a food product, consisting of high quality meat and fish proteins combined with organic fruits and vegetables, that is 100% Paleo-Friendly. This perfected formula is sold in powder form for the convenience of just adding water to produce a post-workout recovery drink or a densely nutritious Paleo meal. A complete list of every ingredient, its nutritional value, and exactly why it is included in PPP is provided in our What’s Inside section.

Who can drink The Perfect Paleo Powder™?

Anyone and everyone from age 1 to 101 years old. It is not recommended for infants. Keep in mind; The Perfect Paleo Powder is a food, not a supplement. As such there is nothing artificial or harmful to the human body in it. If you’re over 101 you can still enjoy it… we just thought that first line was a clever answer!

Does The Perfect Paleo Powder™ need to be refrigerated?

Not until you add water. While The Perfect Paleo Powder is a food, in it’s powdered state it does not need to be refrigerated. Once blended with water however, if you do not consume the entire beverage in one sitting, it must be refrigerated.

Does The Perfect Paleo Powder™ contain soy?

No, there is no soy, soy derivative, or soy milk — no soy whatsoever in The Perfect Paleo Powder (and there never will be!)

Is The Perfect Paleo Powder™ non-GMO?

Absolutely! It wouldn’t be “perfect,” according to our standards if any of our ingredients were GMO!

Is the Beef Protein powder in Perfect Paleo Powder™ from Grass-Fed Cows?

No, and with good reason. We understand the grass-fed craze and how everyone on the internet is basically trying to tell you that beef products that are not grass-fed are poison or something,  but it’s just not true. We assure you, when it comes to beef protein powders, the grass-fed debate simply does not apply. The biggest benefit of eating grass-fed beef over grain-fed beef is that grass-fed beef has a much more desirable fatty acid profile.  That being said, isolating beef proteins into an easily digestible powder removes the fatty acids entirely. Once the fatty acids are removed, the remaining proteins and amino acids are virtually identical, regardless of what the animal ate. The only exception to this rule would be if the cows were fed hormones, antibiotics, and/ or GMO’s. The beef protein in The Perfect Paleo Powder is from cows that were NEVER fed antibiotics, hormones or GMO’s! The decision to avoid grass-fed beef protein powders was strategic and it allows us to sell you The Perfect Paleo Powder at a much more affordable price, as grass-fed products can be anywhere from 3-5x more expensive to manufacture. If you want to eat a juicy steak, stick to grass-fed, if you’re shopping for beef protein powder, don’t fall for the “from grass-fed cows” marketing gimmick!

To be perfectly clear, we are not talking about Feedlot cattle. We would never endorse such unethical, cruel, practices. We are talking about pasture-raised cattle; free from hormones, antibiotics and GMO’s that may not be classified as 100% grass-fed. For an in-depth look at this complicated topic, please, read our article Grass-Fed Gimmicks.

Does The Perfect Paleo Powder™ contain caffeine?

There is no added caffeine. The Perfect Paleo Powder is a food. Your body will benefit from the energy created when it burns good fuel, we don’t need to load it up with caffeine to give you a lift. The Cacao flavored PPP does contain 4 grams of raw organic cacao powder, which amounts to 9mg of caffeine. In contrast; a tall Starbucks™ coffee contains about 240mg of caffeine.

How much sugar is in The Perfect Paleo Powder™?

There are 9 grams of sugar in The Perfect Paleo Powder. 8 of those 9 grams are Coconut palm sugar. We chose coconut palm sugar because it is greater than 70% sucrose and less than 10% glucose and fructose. It also contains Iron, Zinc, Calcium and Potassium, along with some short chain fatty acids, polyphenols and antioxidants that may also provide some health benefits. Some studies have also concluded that it has a lower glycemic index than table sugar or fructose syrups. The remaining sugars occur naturally in the fruit contained in PPP.

When should I drink The Perfect Paleo Powder™?

You should drink The Perfect Paleo Powder any time your body tells you that you need it. Think about it; When you’ve just completed your intense workout you know your body needs something good and potent quick: Reach for your PPP!
When you hit the snooze one time too many and don’t have time for a healthy Paleo breakfast, mix a quick PPP shake and take it with you!
It’s mid-afternoon and you’re fading fast — but you’ve gotta be on your game for a crucial meeting or conference call. Down a PPP shake and experience the natural energy your body craves. The Perfect Paleo Powder is the perfect solution to your body’s need for fast, effective fuel morning, noon, and night!

What does “Clovis” mean?

Clovis is the name given to the first known hunter-gatherer tribe in North America. Also referred to as “Paleo Indians,” these amazing warriors developed unique spears and launching methods that allowed them to hunt and conquer Wooly Mammoth and other large beasts. The Clovis tribe knew how to truly “Aim Higher” and we named our company after them as a tribute to these powerful Paleo ancestors.

What is Organic Gum Acacia?

Organic Gum Acacia is derived from the sap of the acacia tree. It is one of the Earth’s best known sources of prebiotic dietary fiber, because of it’s low viscosity, and it carries with it a host of health benefits, particularly when it comes to weight loss. A two-arm randomized, placebo controlled, double-blind trial was conducted in the Department of Physiology at the Khartoum University and concluded that Gum Arabic ingestion causes significant reduction in BMI and body fat percentage among healthy adult females. Another study, as documented by the British Journal of Nutrition, concluded that Gum Arabic is at least as effective a prebiotic as inulin, which is commonly sold as a prebiotic supplement. Please see our “What’s Inside” page to learn more about Organic Gum Acacia and the health benefits associated with it.
