DeWied Hog Casing Types

Hand pulled
Hand pulled hog casings have had the ruffle fat removed by hand which makes the casing whisker-free. The hand pulling also stretches the casing and breaks the outer collagen membrane (hog casings are made up of two collagen membranes) along the inside curve of the casing. Hand pulled casings may be used for all sausage types but are best for fresh sausages.

Knife cut
DeWied knife cut hog casings have had the ruffle fat removed with a knife. The knife cutting does not break the outer collagen membrane and causes less holes, but leaves a small amount of fat on the outside of the casing, which after further processing becomes small white threads known as whiskers. Therefore, knife cut casings have whiskers, but longer strands and more strength. Knife cut casings perform better on high speed linking equipment because of the increased strength. They can be used for all types of sausages but are most commonly used for smoked and dried applications.

To remove the whiskered appearance without sacrificing the strength and longer strands of knife cut casings the casing can be inverted (turned inside out). DeWied Fresh-Link™ inverted casings are a less expensive alternative to hand pulled hog casings. They can be used for all varieties of sausage.
