Chefs are always looking for easy ways to change their menus to meet the demand for GMO Free, plant-based foods. The demand for better-for-you foods isn’t just limited to the main menu item but also the small ingredients used in your kitchen. For example, breadcrumbs: A must have staple, especially for many Italian dishes. Unfortunately, most commercial Italian breadcrumbs are not GMO free, fully plant-based or have a clean ingredient list.
The “out-of-box thinking” is to use Italian Seasoned Authentic Panko breadcrumbs. It can do anything a standard breadcrumb can, only better!
The ingredients in our clean-label vegan Italian Panko are:
- Unbleached Wheat Flour
- Sea Salt
- Cane Sugar
- Contains 2% or less of Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Canola Oil, Paprika, Yeast.
Upper Crust Enterprises Italian Panko is a delicious blend of Authentic Panko and premium Italian-style spices, and made with quality plant-based (vegan), clean GMO free ingredients – perfect for adding a little something extra to all of your favorite Italian classics.
Italian Seasoned Panko Compared to Standard Breadcrumb
Substitute Italian Seasoned Panko for your standard Italian-style breadcrumbs and notice the difference in taste, longer-lasting crispy texture, and its excellent versatility especially as coating and mix in for meatballs.
The key factors that make Italian Panko a better choice than standard Italian breadcrumbs are:
- Crispier texture – which holds up better to sauce and excellent for take out.
- No bready flavor – Panko breadcrumbs are flavor neutral, so you taste the spices and the food without a dense bready flavor.
- Bigger and better plate presentation – Panko has a flaky sliver shape so it provides a better look and makes coated items look bigger.
- Less Oily – Panko releases oil so your coated items are not oily or soggy, but light and crispy.
- Cleaner ingredient declaration – most Italian breadcrumbs have a long list of chemicals and dough conditioners. Not Panko, it has a short list of ingredients with no preservatives or dough conditioners.
- Vegan – All ingredients are plant-based without dairy or animals fats.
- GMO Free Certified
- Koser and Halal Certified
