The basics of Fibrous
ViskoTeepak fibrous casings receive their unique properties from a combination of a specially-made paper base and a natural cellulosic covering. The paper base imparts strength and dimensional stability making it the best choice for high-speed sausage production plants. The cellulose impregnation provides permeability to water and smoke, and allows the casing stretch and shrink in accordance with the specific processing requirements of small or large scale producers.
Fibrous ST is the preferred choice for in-house slicing applications where the size control/stability of the sausage is critical or when the maximum casing strength is needed.
Typical applications where ST fibrous is used:
- cooked sausages
- smoked sausages
- semi-dry sausages
- dry sausages
- various types of ham products
- smoked cheese
- sliced applications
