Whenever we’ll have a craving for Chicharon (a dish made of fried pork rinds), we’re worried of the cholesterol, and sometimes 2 or 3 small pieces will suffice, and make sure we have vinegar with lots of garlic in it to use as "sawsawan" (dipping sauce).
Just recently, we discovered Marty’s Cracklin’ Vegetarian Chicharon, Old fashioned Style, Guilt Free, has 0g transfat, and it comes in two flavors, Plain Salted and the other is Salt & Vinegar flavor. According to the label at the back one of the ingredients is dehydrated green peas, it is manufactured by Oishi. My favorite, and also my daughter’s is the Plain Salted, it’s not really that salty, and hubby prefers the Salt & Vinegar flavor. Thanks OISHI for this Vegetarian Chicharon, now we have an alternative to the Cholesterol laden Native Chicharon.
