FYI

PORK RINDS

Why you think they’re bad: These puffy snacks are literally cut from pigskin. Then they’re deep-fried.

 

Why they're not: A 1-ounce serving contains zero carbohydrates, 17 grams (g) of protein, and 9 g fat.

 

That’s nine times the protein and less fat than you'll find in a serving of carb-packed potato chips. Even better, 43 percent of a pork rind's fat is unsaturated, and most of that is oleic acid—the same healthy fat found in olive oil.

 

Another 13 percent of its fat content is stearic acid, a type of saturated fat that’s considered harmless, because it doesn't raise cholesterol levels.
