March 2021. The new Kikkoman Panko – Japanese style crispy bread crumbs adds a delicious crunch to foods of all kinds and speciality dishes from all around the world! Panko gives schnitzel a super-crispy coating and deep-fried chicken a light, crumbly finish. It also creates a wonderfully crunchy crust for gratins and soufflés. And since panko doesn’t contain any seasoning, it’s ideal for desserts such as crumbles or as a base for flans and tarts.
The name ‘panko’ comes from the Japanese words for bread (‘pan’) and flour (‘ko’). In Japan it’s traditionally used in a wide range of dishes, including tonkatsu, deep-fried seafood, onion rings and chicken nuggets.
Kikkoman Panko – Japanese style crispy bread crumbs is made of a special kind of crustless white bread and keeps foods crunchy for longer. That’s because it absorbs a lot less fat and oil than regular breadcrumbs do. The result? Delightfully crispy coatings and light, crunchy toppings. Once you’ve tried swapping ordinary breadcrumbs for Kikkoman Panko – Japanese style crispy bread crumbs, you won’t want to go back!
