    PORK RINDS....OH MY GOD!!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hi all,

    im still doing well on the diet BUT...i have been eating pork rinds nearly everyday in place of my crisps. The problem is i have just noticed they have 'DEXTROSE' in them....this is a form of glucose right? and sugar means bad right? The thing is though, they have nil carbs.

    I AM STUCK AND CONFUSED AND HAVE PROBABLY BOTCHED UP MY DIET TOTALLY!

    Any help would be great.

    Well, they are probably very low carb...per serving....of course my bag of pork rinds says 6 servings in the bag and I at most get 2 out of it! I think the dextrose is mainly in there to help the spices flow and adhear to the rinds...and I don't think they use much. To be safe though, perhaps you shold count each of the manufacturer's servings as 1 net carb?

    They have a lot of salt on them too...and a lot of calories....

    I'm starting to subsitute a dill pickle for the some of the pork rinds I had been eating. Mainly to cut down on fat calories I'm eating.
