Usually the list is most to least, like flour, then sugar working your way down to salt, spices etc. In Ohio you have to list everything, take flour you have to list the kind of wheat, if it is enriched then the iron, niacin and so on. If you make cookies with m&m's you have to list the ingredients from the m&m bag.(read the ingredients sometime). I got my info from the dept. of Agriculture.

Hope this helps, Good luck

Most to least is how I understand it. In our state, we only have to list on individual items, unless it's wholesale.

I believe there's a sticky somewhere here to print your own nutritional lables out...

Sorry I don't have an answer for you, but I do have a question. Are you in St.Louis county or city? I was under the impression that neither allowed home bakeries.
