Similar to collagen casings, the collagen wrap roll is man-made from naturally occurring collagen, removed, extracted and refined from cow hides. They are typically used for encasing whole muscle charcuterie products that require curing such as, capocollo/capicola, pancetta or prosciutto. You will need to cut your own sheet from the roll provided. The sheet can then be applied dry or wet and helps to lock in the flavour once the muscle has been coated with salt and your desired spice mix. Moisture from the muscle is released through the sheet which acts as a barrier protecting direct air contact.
