What are Collagen Casings and How are they Produced?

Collagen Casings were created and developed in the late 1920's in response to market demand.  In the 1960's edible collagen casings were introduced, similar to animal casings but possessing the uniformity of a manufactured product.  Their uniformity allowed for predictable, consistent drying of sausages and controlled cooking of specialty items.


The corium layer (splits) of USDA Approved cattle hides is extruded from between the grain (hair) layer and the fat and muscle layer.3 Collagen Casings - Will Stuff Approximately 25 lbs. of Meat


The hide consists essentially of collagen.  Protein and water are chopped and mixed with lactic acid and cellulose fibers causing them to swell and form a slurry.


The acid-swollen slurry is de-aerated under vacuum, and is then homogenized and filtered to tease the collagen fibers apart.


The resultant slurry is again de-aerated and stored in chilled tanks.


It is then extruded through a die with counter rotating sleeves, which "weave" the collagen fibers together as they pass through the die.


The slurry, which is now in the form of a casing, passes directly into a concentrated coagulating solution of an inorganic salt.


The casing is chemically treated in the process machine to cross-link the fibers and give the casing integrity.  The casing is then washed and plasticized with glycerin.


The casing is then dried, partially re-humidified and wound on reels.


Te reels are taken to the shirring area where the collagen casing is shirred on machines similar to the type commonly used in the shirring of regenerated cellulose casings.

They work GREAT for making Deer Snack Sticks.


We ONLY use these Collagen Casings to make Our Deer Snack Sticks here at Jackson Frozen Food Locker!

They are 19 mm in diameter, and when they are finished smoke/cooking, they will be just a little larger in diameter than a Slim Jim. (19mm = .748 inches. Approximately ¾ inch in diameter)

*When stuffing our 19 MM Collagen Casings, your Stuffing Horn should be no larger than 7/16 of an inch in its outside diameter. 
If your stuffing horn tip is wider than this, the Collagen Casings will not fit.*
