Panko is the Japanese style of breadcrumbs, they are lighter, crispier and larger than European breadcrumbs. Because of Panko bread crumbs’ coarser texture, when used for breading it creates a deliciously crunchy crust that absorbs less oil. Also when used as a filler they make food much lighter and crunchier without “packing” like ordinary breadcrumbs. You can use Panko bread crumbs pretty much whenever a recipe calls for breadcrumbs and you’ll be astounded at the difference it makes. The reason for all this lies in the way in which they are produced. First bread is cooked in a special oven, which uses electric current instead of heat and the result is a soft, airy loaf without crust. Bread is then naturally dried for 18 hours after which is coarsely grinded and finally it gets lightly toasted. Although it would be difficult to recreate this exact process at home, Panko breadcrumbs can easily be made using slightly different procedure.
