    Not a significant source of protein??


    Pork skins- I was looking at a bag of these nasty yet tasty Bag-O-Fat and noticed that there were 8 grams of protein per serving but contained "not a sig. source of protein" statement. Is the protein found in pork yummies just not digestible/useable by the body?

    all protein is useable by the body. i know pork is missing some amino acids, so as a constant protein source its not recommended. you sure it didn't say .8g of protein?

    ... Dunno, didn't get the bag but it is possible. I did do a quick search on nutritional information and found similar items that had between 8 and 16 grams of protein per product.

    they probably mean the ratio of fat vs. protein.

    Ummm - how many servings in that bag o' yours?
    (and yeah, how many fat grams?)

    That said: if you're taking 150g pro daily then no - 8g is not a significant source: if you ate 10 servings, you'd still be 2 cans o' tuna down from your daily intake.

    I don't see how it isn't a significant source! Could be the fat-protein ratio. Especially when 30-35 grams is 70% of your RDA.
