The product is 100 percent powdered American Ginseng root (panax quinquefolium) put up in gelatin capsules containing 390 mg. The capsules are packed for retail sale in plastic containers, with a recommended dosage of one to three capsules daily.

The applicable subheading for the nutritional supplement will be 2106.90.9998, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for food preparations or elsewhere specified or included...other...other...other. The rate of duty will be 8.2 percent ad valorem.

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

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Stanley Hopard at 212-466-5760.
