Sausage Casings

Intestines can be processed into natural casings used in sausage manufacture (18). Casing quality is affected by handling and cleaning procedures. Factors such as the age and species of the animal, breed, fodder consumed, and the conditions in which the animals are raised also affect casing quality and value. Animal casings naturally come in a wide variety of different shapes and sizes. The preference for a particular type of casing varies from country to country.

Reconstituted casings are manufactured from hide pieces (19), and artificial casings are often made from cellulose. Animal intestines are also used for the manufacture of surgical sutures, and strings for musical instruments and tennis rackets. Intestinal tract not used for these pur poses is converted into pet food or is rendered to yield meat meal and tallow.
