Collagen is the protein found in the animals such as vertebrates.
It is known that corium layers, bones, tendons, and ligaments contain Type I Collagen, and cartilages contain Type II Collagen as their main component. These collagens have important functions making and keeping the body forms by connecting the cells and organs in the extracellular matrix between cells.
Currently, it is confirmed that there are 28 different types of collagen within human body. Type I Collagen found in the skin forms “triple helix” and it supports keeping moisture and tension of the skin. However, protein tissue of the collagen is altered when heated and it can no longer form high order structures such as triple helix.
We manufacture edible collagen casing, and “raw collagen” with the triple helix structure maintained, by utilizing our very own collagen solution technology.
Besides for collagen casings, collagen as natural occurring protein is utilized as materials in a number of fields such as various food applications, cosmetics, health food, pharmaceuticals. Please visit www.nippi-inc.co.jp for more details.
< What is Collagen Casing ? >
The bags used to stuff sausage ingredients such as meat and spices are called “casing”.
Collagen casings are artificially produced as edible from animal derived protein as opposed to natural casings which are derived and processed from intestines of sheep/lamb, hogs, or bovine.
Nippi Collagen Casing is manufactured from collagen protein derived from corium layers of bovine hides which have similar chemical composition as the natural casings. All production stages are systematically controlled to ensure sufficient hygiene level.
