pork skin inconsistency

I'm staying on the Blue Line for a couple weeks. Lots of Hispanic food stores, and I got some Goya pork skins. I looked at the nutrition label, as I do.

"Protein: 8g Not a significant source of protein."

Dudes, that's like a whole serving of protein. Something's off.

Well, supposedly 14 g to a serving, 8g protein, 5 g fat, 80 calories, 50 calories from fat... that's a pretty consistent set of numbers, if we assume dried skin is basically nothing but protein and fat, which seems reasonable. So I'm inclined to believe that the 8g is accurate, and the "Not significant" is BS.

Unless there's some subtlety like it's indigestible protein. Wikipedia instead says that it's an incomplete protein, very low in some amino acids. So, don't try to live on pork skin, I guess.
