Apologies to everyone that invested in Pork Rind companies hoping for a spike in sales due to the protein content. While Logan and I were at the grocery store, I picked up a bag to find this nutritional information. “Protein: 7g – Not a significant source of protein.” WHAT?! How is 7 grams insignificant? Just like horse hooves aren’t a complete protein, neither is skin! I was going to live on those things (and ignore the insanely high saturated fat and sodium content).
Summary: hooves, skin and rawhide – no. Meat, entrails, scrapple, and sweetbread – yes.
I’ll stick to a good cut of meat, please.
