TEXAS BBQ PORK RINDS

A wholesome version of an iconic American snack food, our pork skins are created using traditional methods inspired by our grandparent’s generation. A blend of organic, non-GMO, pastured, and antibiotic free pork combined with simple seasonings are the foundation for this simple, yet nourishing approach to creating enchanting food that is both time tested and trusted by consumers.

 

What is a rind? A rind is a fried pork skin taken from either the belly or back of a hog. This skin is softer in texture and has more subcutaneous fat when compared to the shoulder. As a result, when cooked, these parts of the hog have a fluffy texture and are often considered “porkier” than pork “cracklings”. Additionally, pork rinds have very little meat cooked into the product. The end result is the perfect lightweight snack that melts in your mouth.

 

The Whole Animal Project: In efforts to honor the brilliant animals EPIC Provisions sources, our traditional cooking oil allows us to use more of the whole animal. This “nose to tail” commitment creates more nourishing food from spectacular creatures and produces less waste. Eat EPIC.

About the Company

Oddly enough, the roots of EPIC were planted shortly after Katie and I became vegetarians. We wrongly believed that a “clean diet” was plant based and in order to replenish our bodies after hard workouts, we consumed large amounts of soy and other highly processed proteins.

To compound the stress we were putting on our systems, we followed the advice of sports nutrition “experts” and prescribed to a diet that was high in carbohydrates and low in fat. As a result, we were making ourselves unintentionally sick with gastrointestinal distress and a myriad of inflammatory ailments.

Not knowing what to do, we decided to go vegan and when things got worse, we decided to follow a raw food diet.
