Van Hessen co-operates with renowned beef casings specialists from South America. Only the best is good enough for our customers. For rounds, middles and caps we focus on consistency, strength and fat free products, suitable for both dry and cooked applications.
The three most commonly used types of beef casings are: Beef bung caps, beef rounds and beef middles.
"Beef Bung Caps" - are used for Capocolla, Veal sausage, Large Bologna, Lebanon and Cooked Salami.
"Beef Rounds" - these casings derive their name from their characteristic "ring" or "round" shape. Beef Rounds are used for Ring Bologna, Ring Liver sausage, Mettwurst, Polish sausage, Blood sausage, Kishka and Holsteiner. Approximate stuffing capacities are indicated in "Green Weights."
"Beef Middles" - can be used for Leona Style sausage, all other types of Bologna, Dry and Semi-dry Cervelats, Dry and Cooked Salami and Veal sausage.
Wall thickness is largely determined by the amount of fat left on finished casing. Beef Casings with a heavy textured wall will have some fat on the casing wall while casings with thin texture will have virtually no fat.
