To ensure that our operator customers get the best results when using Mission tortillas, several basic handling procedures are recommended. When handled in this manner, results will always be outstanding:
Handle with Care
Mission Foods stores and ships all of our flour tortillas/flavored wraps at ambient/shelf stable temperature.
shelf-stable temperature tortillas are ready-to-use right out of the box.
Before opening bag, gently twist the stack of tortillas back and forth 3-4 times to loosen and separate the individual tortillas.
Once bag is opened, make sure to cover/seal the remaining tortillas to keep the tortillas from getting dry and cracking.
Do not remove and stack bags out of box more than 4 packages high. Stacking bags higher than 4 high may cause the product on the bottom of the stack to stick and crack.
Though not recommended, product can be refrigerated. If using tortillas that have been refrigerated, bring the tortillas to room temperature by removing from the case and letting them stand in the bag for 4-6 hours prior to using.
Tortillas give the best results when warmed prior to use:
- Flat top grill – warm for 5-10 seconds per side at 350°F
- Steamer – 3-7 seconds in a table top steamer
- Microwave – 10-20 seconds depending on microwave
Storing Flour Tortillas
Store in a cool dry place. Avoid storing near any source of heat.
Keep the product in the original box. The dividers in the box are designed to keep the product from sticking together due to the weight and pressure. If bags are removed from original box, do not stack higher than 4 bags high. Over stacking will cause the tortillas to stick together.
Mission Flour Tortillas can be stored refrigerated, in their original sealed bags between 35°F - 40°F. This will not affect product quality.
