Pork rinds are a fun and tasty snack that are popular at summer picnics and at the beach. But are they safe to eat if you are on the Paleo diet? Keep reading more to find out what our team of diet experts have to say about pork rinds!
Yes pork rinds are just fried pig skin which means they are safe to eat on the Paleo diet 👍 but be careful because the can be high in saturated fat!
Why Are Pork Rinds Paleo Safe?
Pork rinds are ok to snack on while on the Paleolithic diet because the only ingredients are fried pig skin and a little flavoring. Most popular recipes are fried in lard or tallow – keep an eye out for recipes that fry using oil which is not paleo friendly! They are similar to potato chips and are a good occasional snack if they are cooked correctly.
