    In my local Tesco garage I bought a bag of pork scratchings for 59p

    weight 45g

    100g = 1.6g net carbs

    Shall I eat them or give them to my dog?

    pork scratchings are basically just fat - so i wouldnt have thought be friendly to any diet pure saturated fat and salt - they are the skin and fat from the pig. x

    Hi Jill
    Pork scratchings are absolutely fine to eat on atkins as the diet is all about eating fats proteins and veg, i eat them and still lose weight, alot of people on atkins use them for a snnack :0)

    Pure fat is actually a positive thing on this diet. Scratchings are actively recommended by dr Atkins as a useful food. Don't go nuts obviously but the average bag is usually under 200 cals. I am not a huge fan of them taste wise, but they're more than fine to have. Sarah I think is on slimming world which has very different considerations.

    Cor yes! I was introduced to pork scratchings only a few months ago in the pub. They looked awful but the taste was great (especially with a pint!) But yes according to The Book pork scratchings/rinds are alright.

    What I don't like though is that often the seasoning is full of MSG which doesn't make my digestive system feel too good. However, you can buy the actual crackling from Morrisons and all you need to do is season to your liking and put in a hot oven.

    Yes i love pork crackling, scratchings etc. It's really good when you are just dying for something crunchy. Also the high fat content makes them a substantial snack if you are a lng way from legal food!
