Q: Can I sell egg noodles under this law?

Dried green and yellow pasta noodles
Dried noodles

A: No. While dried egg noodles may meet the non potentially hazardous water activity parameter below 0.85, they are a risky as an uncooked product.

Dried pasta made without eggs meeting the non-PHF standards is allowed. The finished dried pasta product must meet the non-potentially hazardous parameters of: a pH less than or equal to 4.6 or water activity less than or equal to 0.85.

Fresh pasta requiring refrigeration, cooked or frozen pasta is not an allowed cottage food product. A food license would be required.
