Sheep casings

The small intestine of sheep is called sheep casings (Saitling). They offer the thinnest and most tender casing for sausages.

Most sheep casings come from Australia, New Zealand, South America and China. Turkey, Iran and other oriental countries are, however, quickly growing in importance.

Cooked sausages: e.g. Wiener, Frankfurter
Fine grill sausages: e.g. Nürnberger
Raw sausages: e.g. Debreziner, Cabanossi

Sheep casings should be stored cool. +4°C to +8°C are ideal. All sheep casings are stored in brine or covered with salt and protected from light in closed containers.
