Strips and pellets

Strips and pellets are derived from defatted premium pork rind, which is further rendered using heat to produce a result which is a pure source of natural protein.

They are a crunchy, savory low carbohydrate snack which though trendy has been popular for centuries. The use of the pork skin provides a clean label product which is in line with nose-to-tail eating and sustainable eating practices.

  • Strips are made from pork skin that is shredded and has had the fat trimmed off and further rendered until crispy.
  • Pellets are small cubes of skin which can be enjoyed as a popped trendy snack by simply frying, or microwaving.

Strips and pellets have an appealing umami flavor which can accept customization according to taste, using salt and other seasonings, and can also go with a variety of dips.

They are both a fun snack for parties or simply for home enjoyment and can be packaged for portability and enjoyment in countless settings for various occasions.
