Are pork scratchings low carb? April 29, 2021 17:54
Yes! And, yes, we put the '!' there to reinforce that 'Yes'.
If you're off to Marbs and cutting the Carbs kick those crisps to touch and snaffle a pack of the good stuff.
Pork scratchings are basically protein, fat and salt. Two-thirds of all the fat in a pork scratching is actually mono and polyunsaturated fats, beneficial for heart health, with 13 per cent of its fat coming from stearic acid, a type of saturated fat that doesn't raise cholesterol levels.
If you are following a low or no carb diet like Atkins, Keto, Paleo then pork scratchings are indeed a great snack.
