Personally I like the latter…the fat literally melts in your mouth. It's ironic that eating this stuff makes my joints feel fluid and well oiled…lol.

    Never mix this stuff with carbs!

  8. I was wondering whether the amino acids in pork rinds are glucogenic. Found this on another website: "Pork rinds are not supposed to be a complete protein source, because they are low in tryptophan. There are seven essential proteins: valine, phenylalanine, methionine, lysine, leucine, and isoleucine. Of these, pork rinds are highest in leucine (1 serving = 465 mg),

    However, pork rinds are relatively high in non-essential amino acids glutamine (1068 mg of glutamic acid per serving) and glycine (1669 mg per serving). These amino acids are glucogenic – the body will convert them to glucose during a fast. That's why eating pork rinds lowers your ketostix readings – they really do impair ketosis. (I'm not clear by how much)"

There are some companies that make them, but to my horror I found out from asking them what natural flavoring were they used, and they told me they flavor their chicken cackilns with pork drippings…. I nearly inverted myself inside out from gagging…. We make our own now……..
