Gold Crown® Hog Casings

Hog Casings are generally used for Fresh Sausage, Cooked Sausage, Pepperoni, Italian Sausage, Large Frankfurters and Russian Sausages Hog Casings are sold in "bundles" or "hanks".

This unit of measure equals approximately 91 meters (soaked in water). The hog casing most used comes from the small intestine which is what we call the “runner”. The runner section is coiled like a spring for most of its length which is why sausage and boerewors in a natural casing are always curled. A typical runner could measure 20 meters to 21 meters and varies in diameter between 26 mm to approximately 46 mm.

It is important that casings are cleaned in the correct manner prior to being sold. The casings are first crushed and then passed between a series of rollers and strippers which remove all unwanted layers and material.

Gold Crown® Hog Casings are also available in a convenient, labor and time-saving pre-tubed Eezi Load, during which process the casings are first flushed, sorted and spooled onto a Eezi Load tube. These casings then only have to be rinsed and applied to the nozzle

Gold Crown® Sheep Casings

Great care is required in handling sheep intestines and their conversion into sausage casings as they are susceptible to damage and are derived only from the small intestines of animals. Sheep casings combine tenderness with sufficient strength to withstand the filling, cooking and smoking operations.
Color varies according to country of origin; color ranges from white to gray, but this variation does not indicate quality, strength or capability of smoke penetration, etc. Sheep casings must be clean, free from holes and accurately calibrated. Sheep casing sizes range from 16 mm to 30 mm.

Gold Crown® Sheep Casings are also available in a convenient, labour and time-saving Eezi Load tube, during which process the casings are first flushed, sorted and spooled onto a tube. These casings then only have to be rinsed and applied to the nozzle.

Gold Crown® Sheep Casings of the highest quality are obtained from the small intestine of the sheep and are used in the production of Dry Wors, Cocktail Sausages, a variety of Meat Sticks, Frankfurters, Cheese-Grillers, Knackwurst, Bockwurst etc. Sheep Casings are sold in “bundles” or “hanks”. Bundles of Gold Crown® Natural Sheep Casings measure approximately 91 meters in length (soaked in water).
