How to choose charcuterie without pork?

If the fats provide softness, there must be a fair balance in the composition of the charcuterie product. The texture must be both firm and melting, it depends on the quality of the product, its behavior when cut and its flavors in the mouth.

Next, it is important to check the product label to see if the sausage has been made exclusively from beef casing and not pork. This verification is very important to ensure the quality of your charcuterie product. Beef casing is a preservative whose natural porosity contributes to the best conditioning of the food. Synthetic preservatives are in fact strongly discouraged to reduce cardiovascular risks in particular.
