Q: Can I sell banana bread under this law?

A:  Many sweet or quick breads made with fresh fruits or vegetables like banana, pumpkin, zucchini  test as a potentially hazardous food: acidity level (pH > 4.6) and water activity level (aw > 0.85). Therefore, are not an allowed cottage food product. However, changing the recipe or baking products longer, can change the final product to a non potentially hazardous food. Sweet or quick breads tested to meet the non-potentially hazardous parameters would be allowed.
