PANKO, TONKATSU SAUCE and BATTER MIX FOR PANKO COATING
“PANKO” Japanese Style Bread Crumbs
Panko is a Japanese-style breadcrumb. Panko’s bread is coarsely ground into airy, large flakes that give fried foods a light, crunchy coating. The flakes tend to stay crispier longer than standard breadcrumbs because they don’t absorb as much grease.
The panko coating falls off from the ingredients because the egg is inhibited from performing its function, which is that of binding the bread crumbs to the ingredients. Not only does this batter mix make panko stick better to the meat or veggies, but also it will help prevent shrinkage because the surface of the meat/veggies will not be exposed to heat and moisture loss will be minimized.
