Rudin®VegaCasing is based on alginate, extracted from seaweed. We produce this ready-to-use gel on one of our dedicated inhouse production lines and guarantee a product of consistently high quality. When Rudin®VegaCasing is applied on a co-extrusion line, you will benefit from a smoothly running process, without lumps clogging up the nozzles. Besides, being 100% plant-based, it is also suitable for the production of vegetarian, Halal or Kosher products.
Our continuously growing knowhow and experience enables us to offer different types of VegaCasing that you can use for producing fresh, fermented, deep-fat fried and cooked sausages, to name just a few meat applications. Moreover, we can develop special casings suitable for vegetarian or plant-based products in different processes after filling.
Plant-based, edible sausage casing
Continuous production of sausage is possible
Vegetarian, kosher and halal
Plant based, from seaweed extract
Directly applicable in further processing such as smoking, boiling, deep fat frying and drying
For various finished products such as dried, fresh, hanging, deep fat fried and boiled sausages
Matt, glossy and coloured versions
Alginate is the basis for Rudin®VegaCasing and Rudin®VegaBinder, products used for co-extrusion of sausages and the manufacture of restructured meat and fish products. The development of new alginate-based products is a continuous process, initiated both by new developments in the ingredients field and by customer requests for new and specific applications.
Tailor-made types of VegaCasing available
Over the past 20 years, Rudin®VegaCasing has become a tried and trusted formula for sausage producers all over the world. However, it is far from becoming a commodity, as each type of sausage requires a different type of Rudin®VegaCasing. And due to each type of meat filling potentially reacting uniquely, we like to support you when starting up Rudin®VegaCasing on a co-extrusion line.
Specialties based on alginate technology
Over the years we have also been creating various special applications based on alginate. Concepts for coating your products with herbs and spices, for instance. Or for gluing pieces of meat together, to make optimal use of your off-cuts in production.
Co-creation and technical support
Our R&D team is your partner when it comes to co-creating or improving your products using our Rudin®VegaCasing. We can assist you every step of the way throughout the process: from developing your first concept to adapting it, testing it and turning it into a final product. In our Technology Centres in Twello we have the necessary equipment available to prepare all kinds of products. Here, we can simulate various production processes, with co-extrusion as key one.
A successful implementation of Rudin®VegaCasing depends on many parameters that will vary from one product to another and from one processing line to another. We offer support by our dedicated technologists to help you set up the (co-extrusion) lines and to fine-tune them on site. Once you are running production, we remain available for technical support in case of queries.
