Animal Skin Snacks Hope To Benefit From BFY Food, And Keto Diet, Trends

July 12, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Fried chicken skins are a popular snack in the Japan and Southeast Asia. But will consumption of edible animal skins – beyond pork rinds, that is – ever catch on in the U.S.?  Several companies are betting on just that, and on the hunch that Americans are becoming more conscious of the sources and health factors of their food. Los Angeles-based Goodfish, launched during the rise of the pandemic and dependent on DTC online sales, sells fried wild Alaskan sockeye salmon skins at $3 for a 1/2-ounce pack. Available in chili lime, spicy BBQ, and sea salt flavors, Goodfish skins contain seven grams of protein, marine collagen, omega-3 fatty acids, and zero carbs. The fried chicken skin snack Flock (Naked Market, San Francisco) markets itself as keto-friendly, high-protein, and low-carb. The keto trend has also benefited a more traditional “animal skin” snack: in 2018, pork rinds saw a 49 percent increase in dollar sales, according to IRI.[Image Credit: © Goodfish]
