Frequently Asked Questions
You asked. We thought for a minute, had a snack, then answered.
The term “multigrain” means that the product is made with more than one type of grain. Our Thomas’® English Muffin Light Multigrain is made with several different types of grain which include wheat, brown rice, oats, and ground corn. Not all multigrain products are whole grain products. If you are looking for whole grains in your diet, try our Thomas’ English Muffin 100% Whole Wheat product, baked with 25 grams of whole grain per serving. We hope this information is helpful in making the best choices for you and your family. For more information on products, please navigate to the products page on this site.
The small white particles on the bottom of Thomas'® English Muffins are farina. Farina is a cereal food, frequently described as mild-tasting, usually served warm, made from cereal grains. This is used to prevent the doughball from sticking to the oven plate and also to give the product its unique taste.
Mono- and diglycerides, which have earned GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) status by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, are naturally present in fats and have been used with a high confidence of safety for many years. The mono- and diglycerides we use are vegetable derived and provide the product quality and taste our customers enjoy.
No. All of our products are free of hydrogenated oil and fats. Hydrogenation, a process in which hydrogen is added to oils to make them more solid, is used by many in the baking industry to help make products moist, easier to slice and stay fresh longer.
Our products that are Kosher are designated as such on the packaging.

First, use your hands. Find a crease on the side and pull the muffin apart. If you prefer, you can use your fork. Just poke a hole in three sides of the muffin with a fork and pull apart. Do not use a knife. This cuts away the delicious "Nooks & Crannies" texture. Place each side of the English muffin in separate toaster slots to toast all sides evenly.
The expression Original "Nooks and Crannies" is used primarily to call the consumer’s attention to the open grain and texture that is a unique characteristic of Thomas'® English Muffins. Thomas’ originated "Nooks & Crannies," with a secret formula and unique process to create a product no one else can duplicate. Original "Nooks & Crannies" is a registered trademark of Bimbo Bakeries USA.
When a name such as Thomas ends with an "s" and is used as possessive of something such as English muffins, an apostrophe can be added after the "s" or an apostrophe "s" can be used. It has been the desire of our Company to use the apostrophe after the "s." Thomas’ is a registered trademark of Bimbo Bakeries USA.
