Bacon’s Heir’s first product was Pork Clouds, a crunchy snack that took the classic chicharrón, or fried pork skin, and made it light and fluffy, lower calorie crisps.
The creator thought they resembled clouds on a summer afternoon; hence Pork Clouds.
Product #2 will be very welcome to those who want crunchy panko breadcrumbs without the gluten and carbs. These panko are made from pork skin.
PORK PANKO GLUTEN-FREE BREADCRUMBS
While other gluten-free panko exists, they aren’t carb free.
For example, Kikkoman brand makes gluten-free panko from rice flour, pea protein and dextrose (they’re kosher, unlike Pork Panko).
But they’re not zero-carb like Pork Panko.
Which would you prefer?
Pork Panko is:
Carb Free. Friendly to Keto, Paleo, diabetic and bariatric diets.
Natural. Contains only two ingredients: pork skin and rock salt.
Easy. Substitute 1 to 1 for bread crumbs in any recipe.
Oven & Grill Friendly. A high heat tolerance allows for use in any recipe that uses flour. Use to bread chicken, fish, scotch eggs, or as flour in bread or pizza crusts.
Gluten Free. Made in a facility that makes pork rinds exclusively.
WHAT ARE PANKO?
Panko are Japanese breadcrumbs. They are actually bread “flakes” rather than breadcrumbs.
The difference is that conventional panko breadcrumbs (made from wheat bread) are ground into tiny bits, while panko are small flakes.
Conventional panko are made from specially baked, oblong, crustless loaves. The larger and lighter flakes produced coat the food without “packing” like regular bread crumbs. They allow foods to stay crispier longer.
Panko can be used with baked or fried foods.
Try them with crab cakes, fried fish, chicken and chicken nuggets; and in meat loaf and meatballs.
They’re perfect for fried zucchini, mozzarella sticks, onion rings and stuffed mushrooms.
Sprinkle them on casseroles before baking, then dot with a little butter for a light, tasty topping.
Garnish pasta and noodle dishes, including mac and cheese.
Toss a few onto cottage cheese and yogurt.
Add a crisp, crunchy topping to everything.
