Did you know that a third of meat eaters are seeking to reduce meat consumption? This is directly contributing to the increased popularity of plant-based proteins. Last month at MUFSO the vegan and vegetarian popularity was echoed by the presentations of meatless dishes including, Falafel, whole grain salad with wheat berries and red quinoa and beet and broccoli dishes.
It can be a challenge making vegan and vegetarian options mainstream and popular for everyone. Upper Crust Enterprises has a complete line of panko products that can help you. In addition to being vegan, our authentic Japanese panko is Kosher Pareve and Halal Certified as well as Non-GMO certified.
Upper Crust Enterprises Authentic Panko can be used on a wide range of menu items to add a crispy texture and can also be used to help absorb moisture and bind vegetables without adding a bready flavor.
Our vegan panko is flavor neutral and can be used in your menu for almost any application:
- Mix in for Veggie burgers or Veggie meatballs to hold in moisture making the burgers moist and flavorful.
- Coating for fried appetizers to add a light crispy texture.
- Use as a top crusting for noodle dishes, or on grilled vegetable to add a nice crispy texture.
- As a sweet crispy topping on fruit desserts.
