Why Coconut Oil?
If you're wondering why we chose to fry our pork rinds in coconut oil...it's simple. Aside from the obvious reasons such as it being cleaner and having a much better taste, there's actually a few reasons why we made this decision. Coconut oil contains unique fatty acids that can boost the metabolic rate and potentially reduce appetite. Not to mention, the benefit of natural MCT's. As the name suggests, medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil contains medium-length chains of fats called triglycerides. Due to their shorter length, MCTs are easily digested and many health benefits are linked to the way your body processes these fats. We've all heard that deep-fried food is generally unhealthy, but this depends on the type of oil used. Now, I think it's time we talk about the alternative...Pork Lard. Lard has about half as much saturated fat as butter, but about double the saturated fat found in olive oil. Saturated fat raises LDLs, the bad cholesterol, and lowers HDLs, the good cholesterol. It's associated with heart disease, hypertension, diabetes and obesity.
So you see...
Although coconut oil costs more for us, we value our customers and want them to have a healthier snacking experience. Coconut Oil allows us to provide just that!
