Hog casings, once cleaned, naturally have small capillaries (whiskers) that once allowed nutrients from within a pigs food source to pass into their bloodstream. Over the years, and with societies unrealistic desire for perfection within the food industry, some sausage makers have demanded the removal of these whiskers. This demand has primarily been driven by larger operators such as supermarkets. It's worth noting whiskers disappear on their own during the cooking or hanging process. All whisker free hog casings are imported from Europe or the U.S.A.
