    Fried Pork Rinds/Skins???

    Shop Now
    What is the consensus on these?

    Are they okay due to high protien & fat content, ot taboo due to being fried and probably in vegetable oil? Are there any that are considered primal?

    Just wondering, as I am short on protien and enjoy snacks.

    i'll have them from time to time when i want something crunchy (with a little cheese and hot sauce). true, they're not fried in the best oil, but that's the only problem i have with them. call them an occasional indulgence.

    The ones I get aren't fried in oil. I think they just use the pork fat that's already there. I like them as an occasional treat. They're awesome for scooping up guacamole. They're better than a lot of other things you can snack on. I just try not to snack that often.

    You can make them up yourself ... pork skin, scrape off the easy fat, render for lard and then just crisp up the skins under the grill/broiler (delete as appropriate for your language).

    I buy the microwave kind~ Lowery's bacon curls~ popped fresh in a bag like popcorn but with no added fat. I order mine from Amazon. Love them when I'm craving something crunchy/salty.

    you can definitely find ones where the ingredients are just pork and salt - and you should! but don't kid yourself, they aint healthfood. it's bottom of the barrel CAFO pork, fried out at ridiculously high heat. the likelihood of avoiding oxidized PUFA when you eat even the best store-bought pork rinds, approaches 0.

    You have 20% to eat them with - knock them down!!!

    I love the expression on my wife's face while I'm eating them - I would eat them just for that reason!

    I can't get past the occasional hairs in them. I know, not primally minded there, but I can't help it.

    Pork rinds, chicken skins, salmon skins, bacon fat, whatever it is, it is always delicious when crips. I love it soo much. And if you didnt realise, they are actually nearly ALL protein when done properly. As in dont fry them in oil, cook them so all the fat and water comes out. Season etc. AMEZING! being mostly protein they dont even have to be in your 20%. I thought they would be really high in fat, until I bought some 'clean pork rind' from a chinese shop and saw 76g protein per 100g! its the same with jerky, very little fat.... GOOD STUFF

    I baked an entire chicken worths of skin the other day and this is what was left lol:
