I have just discovered:
Ian's whole wheat panko breadcrumbs.
Ingredients are : unbleached whole wheat flour, malt extract, yeast, sea salt. That is it; no preservatives. No artificial ingredients.
I know I could make my own bread crumbs but they don't seem to last (why do pre-made bread crumbs last??) and I never know what to do with a whole loaf of bread. Only thing I could say negative is that I would prefer to buy locally produced groceries, but hey, these are worth it to me. Sometimes, a recipe's just got to have bread crumbs. Anyway, I think these are great and wanted to share!

Where'd you find them? I bought Panko bread crumbs for a recipe I'm dying to try (Chickpea cutlets from Veganomicon) since they had so few ingredients. (3 as opposed to 20 or so on regular bread) I haven't seen any whole wheat panko bread crumbs though.

I found them at Ralph's which is a major grocery chain in CA - I think they are affiliated with Kroger.

Oh I just saw that they have a link to where thier products are sold in the states:

Ahh I miss Ralph's, although I'm not sure if they are part of Kroger or what stores around here are Kroger. The list does show Whole Foods but I didn't see them there are a few other health food stores that are shown that I can try :)

Our Whole Foods sells their own bread crumbs in the bakery section. They're not whole wheat, but they're loads better than the other commercial ones. I'll keep an eye out for the Ian's ones, Copp's is on their list in my area.

You can store homemade bread crumbs in the freezer and they won't go bad. No need to defrost before using them. I buy bread for other purposes (mainly sandwiches) and use the pieces I don't want to eat (the ends, for example) to make bread crumbs. Since I'm buying low calorie (whole wheat) bread, my bread crumbs end up being pretty low calorie too.

I bought a bag of them at an independent grocer in the central valley. They cater to many different ethnic groups, so it is an interesting store. Anyway, the ingredients in mine are wheat flour, yeast, salt, honey, butter , sugar. They are made in Korea. I don't know what I will do with them, but it seems to me I have seen recipes calling for them. 7.4 oz cost $1.99, so I had to buy them "on spec".
