Composition and manufacture of patties

Updated article : 07/11/2017

The fricadelle (or fricandelle) is a sausage known to all in the North of the France, the Belgium and the Netherlands. Traditionally cooked in oil, this sausage from 18 cm is found in all chip shops or chip stalls.

The question of what is made a common response fricadelle is “everyone knows what there is inside but no one says”. Sellers often refuse to reveal the composition, which is “top secret”.

We therefore conducted a small survey to find out how are made and what are composed the famous burgers.

The manufacturing process

Mark Becker is part of leaders in manufacture of cakes to the Netherlands and boasts of being the origin of his invention there is almost 60 years now. Bernard Goethals, Director of the Group, says that “When it's going poorly economically, It will good for the fricandelle”.

Most of the cakes were once made by the butchers, now everything is industrialized.

With the opening of the doors of the factory we have our first response elements :

This is the raw…

The meat is kneaded…

Mix with spices…

The material is ready…

The cakes are cooled…

…and then frozen…

…and finally conditioned

The composition

As for any sausage or ground beef we well doubt that it is not the most beautiful pieces of meat that are used. Are used, without surprise, the remains and the carcasses of animals at the slaughterhouse waste. It is mainly the remains of meat and chicken skin but also pork and sometimes horse (2-5% about). The proportion is two-thirds of chicken for one third of pork to which are added bread crumbs, dehydrated onions and a mixture of spices (among others : nutmeg, pepper and chilli) to give this unique to the fricadelle taste.

Ingredients :

Chicken waste (40%), waste of pork (25%), breadcrumbs (wheat flour, water, yeast, Salt), pork fat, onions, waste of horse (2%), Salt, spices, dextrose, aroma (may contain mustard), flavour enhancer (E621), emulsifier (E450, E452), maltodextrin, antioxidant (E300, E330), vegetable oil and fat, Egg, milk derivatives, corn starch.

By referring to our article on food additives, certain additives present in fried potatoes are not recommended for health :

Food additives in fricadelles

You should know that there is also no pork patties.

Here are two small patties in Belgium plants reporting

You know now what is made your fricadelle and how it is prepared !

I found some very excessive reactions concerning what is seen, This is demonstrated once bad to see that thing they can't say is how to season meat that differentiates them from the other manufacturer. Since everything small I eat this kind of thing and 26 years after I am still alive and no health problems! It's just like the rest of the food, abuse is not good for your health. Personally, I prefer still see this meat (Edible remind the) processed as Pier, too many people don't eat at… Read more "

good evening my good man,
you're absolutely right, I don't throw anything, from nothing, as long as the food is still edible, of course, concerning the fricadelles, sometimes, and ,like tomorrow, for example, barbecue, mustard included, goes with any vegetables, Super good, but not every day

About 12 H between preparation and cooking with fresh products and your choice; Thus, not unhealthy comments regarding the industrial production which we consume almost daily products in addition to the cakes. Come on, happy new year to all

It's not the fricadelles that should be banished… It’s industrial food… I make my own fricadelles. There is no chicken or pork waste, neither pork fat, no horse waste, ni dextrose, no flavor enhancer, no emulsifier, maltodextrin, antioxidant, derived from milk or corn starch. There is chicken, pork or beef, good chopped pieces at home (At least, I know what's inside). Dry bread (House) rehydrated with milk, 1 Egg, 1 onion, of flour, fresh chopped parsley, nutmeg, the… Read more "
