Collagen casing, one of artificial casing, is used for used for the processing of all kinds of small diameter sausages, wieners, semi-dry, dry or fresh sausages.
Collagen casing is fabricated from collagen, which is obtained from the curium layer of selected split cattle hides. The collagen-rich tissue is homogenized under high pressure, ring-extruded (hose-shaped) and hardened and results in a mechanically strong casing. Our Collagen casing are permeable for smoke and water vapour. As collagen is an animal tissue fit for human consumption, the thin collagen casing are easy to chew and “edible”. They are an alternative to replace natural sheep, goat or thin pig casings. The advantages of collagen casing are their standard diameter and strength and that they can be “shirred” i.e. folded together, in long lengths and used for manual or automatic filling stations without pre-soaking in water.
With machines imported from Germany and our patented technology,our Collagen Casings can offer outstanding performance to the sausage manufacturers in terms of consistency, linking performance, appearance, cooking performance and taste quality. The casing is available in a large range of diameters,from 13mm-130mm, with colors clear, onion, caramel, dark caramel and smoked.
The production process of collagen casings is:
Bovine hide——–remove the corium layer—-collagen layer—–liming——-water washing—–buffering—acid swollen—-grinding————Defibering——-
mixing collagen with CMC & cellulose—homogenizing—-cold storage (collagen dough) Collagen dough—extruding casing—drying—coagulating + neutralization—-Drying –shirring—-packing
Now we provide collagen casings for dried and semi-dried sausages,beef sticks, salami sausages, pet sausages,barbecue sausages, cooked & smoked processed meat sausages,and other fresh meat sausages.
