Dear Mr. Corboy:

In your letter dated July 30, 1991, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The prospective import, Rheopearl KL (Refined), is a dextrin palmitic acid ester, an esterified starch. It is used as a gelling agent.

The applicable subheading for the Rheopearl KL (refined) will be 3505.10.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for dextrins and other modified starches. The rate of duty will be 1.1 cents per kg.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
