Trader Joe's Spicy Porkless Plant-Based Snack Rinds offer the experience of pork rinds without any actual meat. Although it was a challenge to create a meatless version of this snack at a low cost, Trader Joe's created a crispy, salty and crunchy version with a base of rice meal, pea protein and pea flour. The meatless snacks are seasoned with a blend of paprika and cayenne, plus they get a fiery kick from habanero pepper powder.
Thanks to the fact that the snacks are baked, they are more desirable than fried options from a health perspective. The vegan and gluten-free snacks boast seven grams of protein per each one-ounce serving, which makes them appealing to those who are fans of nutritious snacking without animal products.
