Kikkoman Panko – Japanese style crispy bread crumbs is a fantastically versatile ingredient. It adds a pleasant crunch to foods of all kinds and speciality dishes from around the world, whether you’re cooking, baking, roasting or deep-frying them. The name ‘panko’ comes from the Japanese words for bread (‘pan’) and flour (‘ko’). Made from a special crustless white bread that’s very finely ground and then dried, panko micro-flakes are lighter and airier than traditional breadcrumbs. Kikkoman Panko – Japanese style crispy bread crumbs absorbs less oil and fat, giving roasted, deep-fried and baked foods a lighter, crisper texture.
A fantastic alternative to regular breadcrumbs, Kikkoman Panko – Japanese style crispy bread crumbs can be used to create crunchy coatings for a wide range of foods, from Japanese tonkatsu (fried pork cutlets), to fried schnitzels and vegetable croquettes. But panko is also great for binding meatballs, meatloaf, all kinds of stuffings and fillings, doughs and even veggie burgers. And a couple of tablespoonfuls of panko added to soups or sauces can make them wonderfully creamy. Kikkoman Panko – Japanese style crispy bread crumbs doesn’t contain any seasoning, so it’s also ideal for desserts: it adds a pleasant crunch to crumbles and flan and tart bases, and creates deliciously crispy coatings for deep-fried desserts.
This Kikkoman product is suitable for vegans.
