Designs for Health PaleoMeal-DF (Dairy-Free) is a plant-derived protein powder alternative to their popular whey-based PaleoMeal. It is free of casein, lactose, and gluten and offers the same comprehensive nutrient blend as the original. When used with a balanced whole foods diet, PaleoMeal-DF is designed to help promote an optimal intake of protein, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals needed for overall wellness. 540 grams.
PaleoMeal-DF is made with Peatein, a natural pea protein concentrate offering a high level of functionality and nutritional benefits. Using a patented protein technology, the production process does not use any chemicals. The raw materials, North American grown yellow peas, are not genetically modified (non-GMO). Peatein has an excellent array of amino acids, including high levels of BCAAs (branched chain amino acids). While its amino acid profile is similar to whey protein, it is particularly high in arginine, leucine, lysine and tyrosine. Peatein™ is a true vegan protein which has excellent digestibility (98%) and is hypoallergenic. As pea protein has ACE inhibitory activity, it may have a positive effect on the maintenance of normal blood pressure levels. It has also been shown, in rat studies, to have a positive impact on total cholesterol and very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) by stimulating bile acid formation and excretion.

Designs for Health began in 1989 by offering nutrition counseling and education services. The company's immediate success grew out of their ability to deliver results in the form of successful patient treatment outcomes. Relying on science-based nutritional solutions, the company's motto became — and still is — "Science First."
Why We Call Ourselves "The Paleo Company"
The nutrition experts at Designs for Health believe in the benefits of a Paleolithic diet, which is based on the same dietary principles followed by our ancestors. During the 2.6 million years that our Paleolithic ancestors inhabited the earth, they depended upon nutrition from lean meats, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. As a result, our ancestors were lean, fit, and free of the chronic diseases that plague our society in epidemic proportions today.
Diets changed considerably in the space of a few thousand years, owing to the dawn of agriculture and the introduction of cereal grains. Today, a concerted effort is required to avoid highly processed foods containing minimal nutritional value and chemicals with cumulative, adverse effects.
Given that there has been little change in the human genome since Paleolithic times, our nutritional requirements remain similar to those of the Stone Age hunter-gatherers. Thus, a diet that espouses Paleolithic principles — a balanced ratio of low net carbohydrates, high quality proteins, and essential fats — may be the ideal route to the attainment of robust health, energy, and vitality.
At Designs for Health, they believe that supplements should not be taken as a substitute for good quality food; rather, they should be used to enhance the diet by optimizing nutritional wellness and increasing metabolic efficiency. Supplements can also compensate for nutritional deficiencies resulting from the consumption of processed foods with lower nutritional value, or nutrient-depleting lifestyle factors such as stress and chemical exposure.
