INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:
CATALANA can be used in two different ways:
- As a paste: take 40 gr. per Kg of meat mass, then form a sort of paste by adding some water; then mix well and knead it along with the meat mass.
- Mixed with starch: take 40 gr. of this product and add between 20 and 50 gr. of potato or corn starch (this would be the dose per Kg of meat mass) in order to form a paste when adding some water; then mix well and knead the paste along with the meat mass.
CATALANA enables the production in continuous process (kneading, introduction in moulds, tins or stuffing, and boiling), but if we have enough time, it is advised to leave it repose for 24 or 48 hours in the fridge at a temperature of about 3ºC after kneading.
The boiling time is 1 hour per every kilogram of piece, at an advised temperature between 75ºC and 80 ºC.
This product is packed in 1, 5 and 25 Kg bags.
