Frozen low-fat skin without its packaging
Just like mechanically separated meat, frozen low-fat skins are produced using special machinery. Refrigerated chicken (breast) skins are minced with a special production process and then frozen in polyblocks. The end result is a chicken (breast) skin with a fine structure and a fat content of ±10%. To compare: unprocessed chicken (breast) skins generally have a fat content of ±45% (see also the diagram below for a comparison between low-fat and unprocessed skins).
Low-fat skins are generally processed in combination with one of our other products, e.g. frozen mechanically separated chicken meat (also known as chicken MDM) or 3 millimeter baadermeat.
Low-fat skins are considered a semi-finished product intended for further processing. Low-fat skins are often used in combination with other ingredients, partly due to the fact that low-fat chicken (breast) skins contain a relatively high amount of collagen. The product is used for the production of various meat products, e.g. burgers and sausages.
In addition to its regular products, Polskamp Meat Industrie also offers products for specific target audiences or buyers. Think of, for example, low-fat chicken (breast) skins with a Halal certificate. Polskamp Meat Industrie also exports products to countries outside the European Union. These shipments are given a health certificate. It is possible to combine export shipments of low-fat chicken (breast) skins with e.g. mechanically separated chicken meat. We would be happy to tell you more about the available options.
