it's / its

The rule: if the word does not stand for “it is” or “it has” then what you require is “its”.

This is extremely easy to grasp. Getting your itses mixed up is the greatest solecism in the world of punctuation. No matter that you have a PhD and have read all of Henry James twice. If you still persist in writing, “Good food at it’s best”, you deserve to be struck by lightning, hacked up on the spot and buried in an unmarked grave.” – Lynne Truss, Eats, Shoots & Leaves, pp. 43 – 44.
