Salt is essential on LC, not so much MSG and food with limited nutritional value.

No one's judging anyone. Just raising objection to the notion that pork rinds--especially flavored ones--are some sort of healthy LC staple food.
I agree most msg and salty foods are not on my health list. Although I also love bacon, herring, olives etc. They make me retain water and not recommended for my blood pressure. Even some of the P.R. that contain salt only are high in sodium with 1/2 gram of salt for 5 pieces....I don't eat only 5 pieces

I tried Pork Rinds for the 2nd time in my life today. The first time I had them was 15 years ago and they grossed me out. Today I bought the Salt and Vinegar, and LOVED THEM. It could have something to do with not having lunch yet and starving, but at least I made a decent choice

I would say as long as you aren't doing it often (they are really high in sodium and easy to overeat), I wouldn't worry about it.

I saw the "before" product in the store today. The finished product does not exist here and I must admit that I am squeamish. It is so cheap, something like 30 cents for a lb but I wish it was already popped... I might get desperate as I have the need for something cheap and new but it will take me some time to get my head around to the idea...

You know what? I am just looking up how to make it and that bad it cannot be . I will try it anyhowand see if I can persuade myself to eat it. I will report back
My age ? Well, I remember the days when Apple and Blackberry were just apple and blackberry...
