Your local health regulations may determine what you can sell from home and how it must be stored. You MUST check there first.

Bakeries are able to show a longer shelf life when stabilizers and preservative chemicals like potassium sorbate have been added. These commercial additives are regulated in most countries. Their use MUST be shown on ingredient labels.
