Epic Pork Crackling Maple Bacon is a wholesome snack made from non-GMO, antibiotic-free pork that’s seasoned with maple sugar powder. A crackling is a fried pork skin obtained from the shoulder region of a pig; it’s harder and crispier than a pork rind. Epic’s products are a modern-day take on our ancestors’ diet, with a focus on high-quality meat, wholesome fruits and veggies, nuts, and seeds. As such, the company is committed to only working with the best ranchers that provide their animals with plenty of open pastures and practice holistic land management.
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.
