    Why do bags of pork rinds say "Not a significant source of protein?"

    is there something wrong with the protein in pork rinds? A serving of prok rinds has between 7 and 9 grams a protein which is on par with a large egg. So why is it that all the bags say this?

    Maybe they're so oxidized they're worthless?
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    It's because most of that protein is from gelatin, which is a poor source of the "essential" amino acids. Gelatin is great for your health though and most of us probably don't get enough of it.

    Yes this is true, your body can't use the protein in gelatin the same way it uses protein from meat. It is still good for you, but it isn't a replacement for true protein.

    Because the Great Boar God is displeased with america's treatment of his kin and wants to make us think that the flesh of his brothers is nutritionally vapid.
    Thankfully we know better.
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.
