Tidbit Tuesday ~ Alaska
This Tuesday we’re checking out the Alaska Cottage Food Law. Here’s a few interesting facts found on cottagefoods.org, dated November 24, 2013.
“The cottage food law in Alaska is actually a really flexible law, with the biggest restriction being that a producer is limited to $25,000 of sales per year. However, no license or permit is required to start selling.
Rather than listing specific foods that can be sold, the law allows any food that is non-potentially hazardous, which is measured by the pH value and water activity level of the product. This opens the door to a wide array of foods, though some products need to be tested to ensure they are safe. Alaska allows more cottage foods than any other state, including some that are not allowed anywhere else, like soda and some types of juices.”
