Hybricol CO-EX casing Gels
PLANT BASED CASING GELS
Hybricol® has developed a new casing solution based on alginate for various sausages, whether meat or plant-based. Hybricol plant based casing gels, which are suitable for Meat, poultry, fish, Vegan, vegetables, fruit sticks / sausages, are presented as “a Big revolution in sausage-making.
The solution is based on a concept where a liquid Plant based layer is applied to the sausage /stick mass and then hardened into a firm structure in a calcium bath. The result is a strong and edible casing that gives sausages a gentle bite. This casing also offers processing advantages and there are no concerns about availability.
The plant based gel system is based on a complex mix of highly reactive hydrocolloids. Synergistic effects upon exposure to a calcium chloride solution lead to the formation of a casing with good elasticity and tensile strength.
