What sets Panko apart from the usual bread crumb – The Processing!
Panko is made from bread baked by electrical current. This unique method was developed during World War II when Japan was fighting Russia out of a necessity to cook bread without heated ovens. The result was the ingenious idea of using electric current to cook the bread, not heat from an oven – it is a fascinating process and created a loaf without a crust. Take the Panko plant tour and see how we create “The Electric Bread Crumb” – Panko Bread Crumbs: The Secret Revealed.
But not all Panko is created equal, you want to use an Authentic Japanese Panko bread crumb which will have a light airy texture and sliver shape crumb. It will not be hard, dense or round. Unlike the usual breadcrumbs, Authentic Panko provides a less oily coating which does not compact so your menu item has an airy crispy coating. It also will look bigger on the plate giving your menu items a nice plate presentation.
The Multiple Benefits Panko
Unlike other bread crumbs, Panko has a neutral flavor, providing the culinary artist with the blank canvas needed to absorb the true flavor of the dish. While other bread crumbs are still soggy after cooking, Authentic Panko retains its crispy texture. In today’s health conscious society, our Japanese bread crumb offers the healthier alternative to the usual bread crumb.
