Pork Rinds from Rudolph Foods

I was recently sent some Rudolph Foods Pork Rinds in Original flavor if you have never had pork rinds they are fried skin of a pig which is also higher in protein and lower in fat than a serving of peanuts? If your answer is no, you’re not alone. The nutritional profile of pork rinds has been misunderstood throughout the snack’s history.

One serving of pork rinds contains 9 grams of protein. This, along with 0 grams of carbohydrates makes pork rinds a smart choice for people on a high protein diet. Because pork rinds have 0g carbohydrates, their glycemic response is zero, making them an alternative for some diabetics who want to enjoy a crunchy snack.
Pork rinds have also been criticized for their fat content, 5g per serving. However, over half of the fat in pork rinds is monounsaturated, the kind of “good fat” you would associate with olive oil. The expanded Nutrition Facts label for a serving of pork rinds shows that, of the 5g of total fat, 2.5g are monounsaturated, .5g is polyunsaturated, 2g are saturated, and they have 0g trans fat.
My Opinion: I sue to eat pork rinds in my teens but have not had them in a very long time and found now that I am older I do not like them my first impression was crunchy, tasty but my stomach did not like them as I felt nausea right away which is rather sad to not be able to eat them. My other family members I shared them with liked them a lot.
