This is by no means an exhaustive list of Whole30 compliant products at Aldi and Walmart.  These are just the products that I stock my fridge and pantry with, excluding the obvious meat, eggs, fruits, and veggies.  The prices are from the St. Louis, MO, area.  I do not go out of my way to buy anything organic, grass fed, pasture raised, etc.  I just buy the least expensive compliant items I can find, but that is of course a personal decision.  Remember to ALWAYS check ingredients on products yourself, as especially at Aldi an item can contain different ingredients at different stores.

This is a list of ingredients that you will find in these foods that are ACCEPTABLE to consume during a Whole30:

Ascorbic acid

Calcium chloride

Citric acid

Guar gum

Lactic acid

Natural flavor

Naturally occurring sulfites***see note beneath Walmart vinegars

Palm oil (limit usage, please)

Phosphoric acid

Polysorbate 80

Potassium lactate

Potassium sorbate

Sodium alginate

Sodium benzoate

Sunflower oil (limit usage, please)

Tripolyphosphate

Xanthan gum

Yeast extract
