Structure of intestine

The intestine consists of three layers.
  • Internal layer:   Mucous membrane, consisting of Darmzotten and glands

  • Middle layer:     Muscle skin, consisting of longitudinal and horizontal fibre layer, causing transport of intestine contents.

  • Exterior layer:  Overskin (Serosa or pick up), smoothly and thinly

With the cleaning of the intestine the micro organisms must be eliminated fast and effectively, because they could affect the sausage production negatively. For example, the sheep casing over skin, mucous membrane and internal muscle layer of the intestine are removed mechanically. Only a thin and light transparent middle muscle layer (the Submucosa) remains. Only this is processed into the sheep casing.
