Panko bread crumbs are of Japanese origin and are basically made from bread without crusts and end up being more crisp than most other types of bread. Panko bread crumbs are used to make a wonderful crispy, crunchy coating for fried foods.You can usually find them sold in Asian or Speciality stores.

Panko bread crumbs can be found on the ethnic foods isle of most supermarkets. They are made from wheat. Unlike traditional bread crumbs, they are flakes,and not actually crumbs. Panko is most often used as a crispy coating for fried foods, but also makes an excellent topping for dishes such as baked macaroni and cheese.
