Rusk is a dried cereal ingredient that is microbiologically very clean, used primarily as a filler and binder in meat products. Circa the turn of the century it was first manufactured as a replacement for bread in sausages because the use of a raising agent rather than yeast provided a more stable finished product with a longer shelf life.
Rusk is manufactured from wheat flour, salt and a raising agent by a traditionally slow process of baking, drying, gristing and blending to produce a consistently high quality product capable of absorbing twice its own weight of water without being soft and pasty.
Breadcrumb is manufactured from wheat flour, salt, yeast & either natural food dyes or spices (if required) to colour the crumb. Typical colourings used are Paprika, Turmeric & Annatto used either singularly or in combination as per the EC Colours Directive. Wholewheat & Organic flour is also used to manufacture a Wholewheat Crumb and an Organic crumb. Breadcrumb is manufactured in a variety of grists to suit individual customer requirements.
