Dear Ms. LaValley:

In your letter dated March 12, 1996, on behalf of E.D. Foods Ltd., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Samples and a list of ingredients were submitted with your letter. Cheddar Cheese and Broccoli with Sweet Peppers Soup Mix and Beefy Barley and Vegetable Soup Mix consist of salt, malto dextrin and/or dextrose, yeast extract, sugar, xanthan gum, caramel, disodium inosinate and guanylate, spices, and seasonings. The Cheddar Cheese and Broccoli with Sweet Peppers Soup Mix also contains cheddar cheese, corn starch, dehydrated vegetables (red peppers, broccoli), wheat flour, hydrogenated vegetable oil, modified milk ingredients, skim milk powder, brewer's yeast, monosodium glutamate, color, mono and diglycerides, garlic powder, caramel, citric acid, and sugar.

The soup mixes will be put up in clear, square, plastic bottles with screw tops. Preparation of the soup involves combining the mix with water and/or milk, bringing to a boil, and simmering for five minutes.

The applicable subheading for the dried soup mixes will be 2104.10.0020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for soups and broths and preparations therefor...dried. The rate of duty will be 5.7 percent ad valorem.
