Pork Panko – A Low Carb, Keto-Friendly Breading | Product Reviews | Well Done

– Zero-carb breadcrumbs.
What’s not to love?
I just received a package of pork Panko.
The craze of coating
your food in pork rinds
instead of bread crumbs was made popular
by the old keto diet.
But some people are all about convenience.
So you can now buy zero-carb Pork Panko.
Just got a box of this,
I wanna give it a try
and I’m going to compare it
to regular Panko breadcrumbs
to see if it still gets
crispy and delicious.
So, let’s give it a try.
Super simple ingredients
here, just pork skin and salt.
Using pork rinds for breadcrumbs
is actually a pretty good idea.
Not only good for the low-carb diets,
but also good for diabetics
and this is a good gluten-free option.
So, Pork Panko company was
smart to jump on this bandwagon.
I’m gonna give it a taste.
Tastes like a pork rind.
Compared to Panko, they are darker
and a little bit more moist
than these breadcrumbs.
What everybody loves the most
about using Panko breadcrumbs
is how crispy and crunchy the food gets.
So if these Pork Panko breadcrumbs get as
delicious as the regular Panko
when I fry it up, then I
might be a fan because I am
actually trying to cut
my carbs a little bit so
we’ll see.
I’m just gonna coat each piece of chicken
in a little bit of egg
and then breadcrumbs.
Season each piece
and you give it a dip.
I probably could have
chosen a bigger plate here.
It looks pretty good.
We’ll coat in the regular
Panko the same way.
Color-wise, I love the
color of the Pork Panko
cause it’s already got that golden-brown.
But I am a little skeptical.
So, let’s hit the pan.
For the record, I know I did not
do the proper breading procedure
because I didn’t wanna start with flour
because if you’re gonna use Pork Panko,
you’re avoiding the whole
flour ingredient anyway, so
keep your comments to yourself.
Woo!
That is pretty and golden.
Crunchy around the edges.
They look different but
they both look good.
This is the Pork Panko.
This is the traditional Panko.
I would be okay with this,
especially if I was on any
strict low-carb diet.
But I’m not strict about anything.
But it would definitely
satisfy that craving
for that crunchy, fried food taste.
You can definitely hear that one more,
a little bit crunchier.
Time for the taste test.
It still has a decent amount of crunch
but I love the flavor.
It does taste like Southern fried chicken.
The Pork Panko has better flavor.
Traditional Panko definitely
has better texture
but I personally would sacrifice
a little bit of the texture
to save on those carbs.
