About Krusteaz
In 1932, women in a Seattle bridge club had a simple idea for an easy-to-make pie crust. They called it "Crust Ease" (a clever combination of “crust” and “ease”), and little did they know it would lead to a wide variety of home-baked goods enjoyed by everyone around the country. Krusteaz’ newest line of protein pancake and baking mixes fuel your day with 100% whole grain flour and no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives because Krusteaz takes yummy seriously.
