So, what is natural casing?

Natural casing is a term used to describe the membrane that encloses certain types of meat products, such as sausages and hot dogs. It is made from the intestines of animals like cows, sheep, or pigs, which are cleaned, salted, and processed to create a pliable and durable casing. Natural casings are appreciated by many chefs for their unique texture and flavor, which adds a distinctive touch to any dish. They are also valued for their ability to hold in moisture and allow for even cooking. Because they are derived from natural sources, natural casings are often preferred by consumers who seek minimally processed and preservative-free food products.
