The Nitty Gritty on Authentic Panko

Panko Japanese breadcrumbsQuite possibly one of the most overlooked ingredients in the professional kitchen is also one of the most versatile. Can you guess what it is? It’s Panko! A tiny little breadcrumb that packs a tasty punch. The uses are endless, from American classics like Mac-n-Cheese to Italian comfort food and yes, even desserts. For the very best results, replace your standard brand of Panko with an Authentic Japanese Panko.

Isn’t all Panko Authentic?

Not all Panko is made using the traditional Japanese methods. Creating an Authentic Panko is much more than throwing together the standard ingredients and popping it into an oven. Creating a light and delicate flaky Authentic Panko takes time and can never be rushed. The key to making an Authentic Panko starts with using only the high quality flour, yeast, sugar and salt and taking the time to process the dough to create the perfect crustless loaf of bread.

Strictly adhering to the traditional Japanese methods has been the secret to our success. For more than 35 years Upper Crust Enterprises has been producing Authentic Panko for restaurants across the globe.

We follow traditional Japanese methods and process the dough to create millions of small air pockets so when cooked and ground each Panko crumb has that distinctive light delicate crispy texture, every time.

Life is Hard  – Your Panko Shouldn’t Be

Panko should never (ever) be hard and dense. And that’s exactly what happens when lower quality ingredients are used and the cooking and grinding process are rushed. Only Authentic Japanese Panko will have the light airy delicate and flaky shape which creates the light and crispy texture, without an “overly oily” taste – a pure and perfect ingredient.
