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 !

Tu sais Jacques, l’orthographe en France est de la même composition que les déchets préparés pour la fricadelle ou autres saloperies du même genre. Je pense que la faute n’est pas à rejeter sur les élèves, ils ne font que reproduire ce que l’EN à formaté pour eux… avec la bénédiction des hommes d’état afin que nos têtes blondes en sachent le moins possible afin de mieux les contrôler. Le système n’est pas nouveau… Nous allons donc voir réapparaitre les écrivains publics et moyennant la dime, rédigeront nos courriers officiels, nos missives relationnelles et nos billets de déclaration d’amour. Nous… Read more "

Vous ne metteriez pas du diméthylpolysiloxane, un agent anti-mousse en silicone, dans vos plats de poulet? Que diriez-vous du butylhydroquinone tertiaire (BHQT), un conservateur chimique tellement mortel que cinq grammes seulement pourrait vous tuer? These are just two of the ingredients in a McDonald's Chicken McNugget. Only 50 percent of a McCroquettes is actually real chicken. The other half includes corn derivatives, sugars, fully synthetic puffing agents and ingredients. There is no doubt that processed food such as in McDonald’s is not part of a healthy diet., and I’m grateful that I don’t… Read more "

Especially that you don't have to be out of Centrale Sup to make nuggets at home : Chicken breast cut into pieces dipped in beaten egg and then in breadcrumbs, and fried in a pan (in olive oil) !

Faut vraiment avoir un super poil dans la main pour pas les faire soi-même !

Haha, y’a rien de malsain dans ce qui est montré.. les histoires decacher des chosesd’accord, mais cela serait valable pour absolument tout. Ce qu’il y a a savoir c’est que : -Le produit n’est pas dangereux (je peux témoigner) -Il a bon gout. (je peux encore témoigner mais cela sera bien plus relatif) Dans cette vidéo si le terme “waste” vous a choqué, il est pourtant évident qu’ils parlent de toute la viande qui n’est pas vendue car pasprésentable” (= ce qui reste quand on a coupé un beau filet par exemple) .. Les autres ingredients cités… Read more "

Ben le bjour mes gros. Alors la je suis outre car ce pur produit du nord est extrêmement gustatif et apprécié de nous. Sa finesse est recherche par les gourmets que nous sommes. Un grand chef les cuisine dans un restaurant étoile. Le secret peux être dévoilé maintenant car il est désormais connu par de nombreux gourmets. Donc lœuf avarie de plusieurs mois est l’ingrédient mystérieux. Il ne faux pas sans inquiéter car cela ne nuit pas a la santé. Ma femme m’indique que dans une varianteles os broyés au mixer peuvent parfumer agréablement ce plat. Cela se… Read more "
