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.
