RE: The tariff classification of a food ingredient from Canada

Dear Mr. Karpiuk:

In your letter dated February 5, 1997 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample, submitted with your letter, was examined and disposed of. "Dextrin Filling Base" is a soft brown paste said to be composed of 69 percent "peanut flour 36," 20 percent vegetable oil, 7 percent maltodextrin or corn syrup solids, and 4 percent partially hydrogenated vegetable oil. The peanut flour ingredient is a product made by grinding the residue remaining after the partial extraction of oil from roasted peanuts. Dextrin Filling Base will be imported in 50-pound boxes, 500-pound drums, or 2000-pound bulk totes, and used as an ingredient in the manufacture of confections and reduced-fat peanut butter.

The applicable tariff provision for this product will be 1901.90.9095, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for food preparations of flour, meal, starch or malt extract...other...other...other. The general 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 CFR 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.
