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 protein and produce.  The prices are from the St. Louis, MO, area.  I don’t 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 labels and ingredients in products often change.

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

Silicon dioxide

Sodium alginate

Sodium benzoate


Xanthan gum

Yeast extract
