Pork rinds are the low carb alternative to other salty snacks. They have fewer carbohydrates and a high content of protein. A one ounce serving contains nine times the protein and less fat than a serving of potato chips. Fifty-nine percent of a pork rind's fat is unsaturated with most of that as oleic acid, the same healthy fat found in olive oil.
The high protein in pork rinds satisfies your snack craving because pork rinds have a high satiation effect. Original pork rinds and cracklins don't contain any sugar, so pork rinds won't raise your blood sugar like candy, potato chips, flour and carb based snacks do.
