The stated ingredients are wheat flake, glutinous rice, mung beans, peanuts, red beans, millet, peas, longans, sugar, and water.

The applicable subheading for the congee will be 2104.10.0060, HTS, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for soups and broths...other...other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.
