Skypirate is right. Pork rinds are believe-it-or-not healthier for you than a lot of other snacks because they have much needed animal fats and no sugars to make you fat and spike your blood sugar. As long as you can get past the gross factor and provided they aren`t doused in MSG and other "spices".

So the package reads "Less Than 1 Gram Total Carb per serving". How is anyone getting this confused?

@intrigid: A carb is an informal unit, either relating to one net gram of carbohydrate (i.e. grams of carbohydrate minus grams of fibre), or to 15 grams of carbohydrates in the case of diabetics, relating to how much carbohydrate on average is utilized by one unit of insulin.

Basically, while not an official unit, for convenience and informal usage the term `carb` is valid.

Does "Chicharrones" really sound "American" to you? Central or South American maybe.

Well, speaking of one carb can make sense. For example:



When it comes to food, though, speaking in terms of the number of molecules in it isn`t a very useful way of measuring.

I had some microwave pork rinds once. It was like someone sprayed mace in the house. Everyone ran outside.

Again, "carb" is NOT a unit of measurement any more than "water" is a unit of measurement. You need to add a unit of measurement to quantify the word. You need to, for example, say "one gram of carbs" or "one milliliter of water" to avoid looking foolish.

@Calderis

Do you understand that "carbohydrate" is one of the three basic types of food calories, along with "fat" and "protein"? Do you understand that all three words are, therefore, correctly used in the same way? Considering the following:

"The bowl of soup contains one carb."
"The bowl of soup contains one fat."
"The bowl of soup contains one protein."

If 1/3 of those sentences seems right to you, please educate yourself. If 3/3 of the sentences seem right to you, please ban yourself from having an opinion on the internet.

All pork rinds are a low carbohydrate food. They are mostly lipids and proteins because they are just fried pork skin. Low carb, but incredibly high fat.

@Intrigid, A Carb is a single unit of a system of measurement. It`s the reason Carbohydrates is plural.

One carb per serving.

Read the fine print, one serving is .00001 ounces.

Also, do you people understand how stupid you look when you say "one carb"? It literally makes as much sense as saying "Yeah my basement flooded the other day. There`s at least one water down there." Or, "The patient is having trouble breathing! Give him one oxygen!"

Just when I think this site can`t possibly get any more stupid, I see this. Pork rinds have basically no carbs. Why don`t you just google the nutritional facts for pork rinds instead of wasting our time with this bullsh*t?

Next up on IAB, a picture of a potato and a question about how it contains no fat! Stay tuned.

Do people not understand the difference between carbohydrates and calories?
1 gram carbohydrate = 4 calories
1 gram protein = 4 calories
1 gram fat = 9 calories
1 gram alcohol = 7 calories

Does that not say "less than 1 gram total carbohydrates per serving"?

These seem very light and full of air, and if one serving is a bowl of these, one might assume the serving weighs 50 grams. That is 2% carbohydrates and about one fifth of some normal food.

"How do these things have less than one carb?"

Seriously? I`d rather be fat and smart then skinny and dumb. Also I ate these things all the time when I did the atkins diet 5 years ago. I dropped 70lbs and I`m still down to the weight I should be. The atkins diet had no ill effect on my health. BTW pork rinds are all fat and protein, no carbohydrates.
