Our product is based fundamentally on natural casing from sheep and hogs. The casing is supplied in hanks, either salted or in brine, packed in a variety of forms of plastic packaging, properly pre-sealed.
The quality of the product:
Three different qualities are distinguished, described as A, B and C (or 1st, 2nd and 3rd, which means the same). However we often have mixtures of quality, for example AB, BC or ABC, depending on the market for which it is intended.
Casing categorised as being of this quality will be highly consistent, completely without holes, free from fat and intestinal mucous. The calibre is rigorously controlled within +/- 1 millimetre. The pores may be no bigger than the head of a pin, with an internationally accepted tolerance of +/- 5%.
Highly consistent, with some holes of up to 1 millimetre in diameter, with slight remains of fat. There is a higher tolerance level regarding the calibre, which can vary by +/- 10-15%.
Less consistent, the walls of the casing are thinner, holes can be up to 3 millimetres in diameter and the calibre tolerance is approximately the same as that for B quality, although the same hank may be of two or three different calibres.
