Newleywed's Medium Rusk is larger in size than Pinhead, and used in coarser products, for a more rustic mouth feel. It is widely used in the production of lorne sausage, birdies, pies, other compound meat products and as an ingredient for dried stuffing mixes. The grade or blend used is dependent upon the speed of absorption required, the appearance and texture required of the finished product.
