Bring authentic Panko to your restaurant  Panko bread crumbs – All Natural

To make our authentic Japanese Panko we start with a special proprietary blend of high protein flour, and carefully mix in water, yeast, sugar, salt and a touch of oil to activate all the ingredients. We do not add any chemicals or preservatives, just simple ingredients. We take our time and rise the dough to develop the perfect bread dough with long cell fibers.

Each loaf is then cooked in a custom oven, which uses electric current (instead of heat) to bake a soft, airy, crust-less, all-white loaf. After naturally drying the bread a minimum of 18 hours, we grind the whole loaf using special screens and lightly toast the Panko to the perfect crispiness. It is a time-honored tradition of blending art and science, but the time is well invested because the final Panko bread crumb is guaranteed to:

  • Taste lighter & crisper than competition
  • Deliver better product highlights and plate presentation
  • Provide a 26% higher yield than competitors.
