One bite and you’ll wonder how so much flavor can be packed into such a compact snack! Check out our field guide to pork rinds (and cracklins) to know the in’s and out’s of your favorite snacks!

Crunch through National Nutrition Month

Happy National Nutrition Month! If you’re a passionate pork rind lover, we’ve got the facts and figures to make you feel even better about indulging in your favorite snack.

All Rudolph’s Pork Rinds fans know that these crispy bites of goodness are maxed out in protein. With 17 grams in each serving, they’re a great way to end a work out and repair muscles, cartilage, and tissues. But did you know that pork rinds, by nature, are also rich in gelatin? Gelatin, an animal protein, is high in glycine, which promotes sleep, helps to ease joint pain, and contains easy to digest calcium that can help support healthy bones.
