Product Description

Ranch Flavored Snack Stick

Excalibur Seasoning

One of our milder Snack Stick Seasonings, it definitely has some Zesitness to it from the sour cream and vinegar powder that comes across nicely without being overpowering! Good choice if you like the flavor profile of Willie's but are looking to try something different! Since this already contains Citric Acid you should not add more and it should not be used with a starter culture because the harsh acid from the different ingredients can kill the bugs in the culture due to its acidity.  

Features:

  • 1.625 lb package
  • Seasons 25 lb of meat
  • Includes necessary Sure Cure package
  • Do not add Cultures or Acids

What Is A Snack Stick?

Snack Sticks are a meat snack and semi-dried sausage that are stuffed into a small diameter casing. Typically a collagen casing is used, but it is also acceptable to use natural casings or even make skinless snack sticks. Most snack sticks have a low pH from around 4.5 to 5.2, which is what gives them that familiar tangy flavor and is what helps aid in shelf stability. Another aid for shelf stability is a low water activity, which means binding water in the meat snacks to make it unavailable to support microbial growth. Water activity is not something that can be measured by a home meat processor, but we still setup our process and thermal processing to attempt to achieve a lower water activity. Snack sticks can be made from just about any type of meat, from beef, pork, chicken, other poultry, wild game, or a combination of meats. Walton's recommends using a lean to fat ratio of at least 80/20, and many times a 30% fat ratio, with a maximum of 40% fat. Fat is where most of your flavor comes from so changing your lean to fat ratio will change the overal taste and mouth feel of your product.
