FAQs

Q: I found some cracks in my MI-DEL pie crust. Will my pie crumble when I make it?

A: Cracks and breaks can occur with handling.  Two possible resolutions — often the crust will fuse back together during the baking process or before you remove the packaging you can use the mild pressure of your thumb or index finger to achieve the same result.

 

Q: Members of my family have allergies.  Different sources often give different information on what allergen attributes a product may have.  Where can I find the most accurate allergen information?
