Collagen Sausage Casings in Calgary & Edmonton, Alberta | High Caliber Products
Collagen Sausage Casings provide a complete solution for many sausage-making procedures including Fresh and Smoked. It freezes well and cooks up nice whether it’s deep fried, grilled or popped in the oven.
Collagen Casing is on a shirred stick which makes it easy to cut off just the amount you need. Made from a gelatinous substance, these edible casings are manufactured, in part, from the corium layer of the cows. A natural protein product, collagen is removed from the beef hide and refined. The more refined the processing, the more tender the casing. Most commercially produced sausage in North America is stuffed into collagen casings.
How to Use Collagen Sausage Casings:
No need to soak them! Use Collagen Casings right out of the package.
Thread several feet of casing onto the barrel of your stuffing tube; as much as you can thread on will save you reloading too much in the stuffing process.
Don’t overstuff. Collagen casings will split when they are too full. Be careful not to under fill either, too loose and the casing won’t adhere to the meat mixture.
*If you would like to use a more durable casing, check out our fibrous sausage casing options. They are definitely easier to stuff, but they are inedible which might not be right for your particular sausage recipe.
