Cellulose casings are made from natural cellulose. They are used primarily in the manufacture of industrially cooked sausages (frankfurters, Vienna sausages, hot-dogs, etc.). Collagen casings use
collagen as their raw material. Collagen casings are of two kinds: small calibre (e.g. fresh sausages, Bratwurst etc.) and large calibre (e.g. salami, Bierwurst etc.).
Viscofan also uses collagen to make edible film wrap to encase various meat products (hams, roulades etc.). Plastic casings are made from a range of polymers. Viscofan makes a wide variety of plastic casings for different product applications. Fibrous casings are
primarily used for large sausages and slicing meats such as mortadella ham and pepperoni.
