Dear Ms. Brault:

In your letter dated October 20, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

An ingredients breakdown accompanied your letter. The product is an icing composed of 50-58 percent powdered sugar, 10-15 percent water, 5-10 percent hydrogenated vegetable shortening, 3-7 percent soybean oil, 3-6 percent sweet whey solids, 1-4 percent each of corn syrup, corn syrup solids, and dextrose, and less than one percent each of salt, potassium sorbate and/or benzoate, polysorbate 60 and/or other emulsifiers, xanthan and/or other gums, citric acid and/or other weak acidulants, artificial vanilla flavor, natural butter vanilla flavor, and propylene glycol. The product will be imported into the United States in totes, or in tankers, and repackaged into individual serving-sized packets. The packets will be included with various retail-packed prepared dough products.

The applicable subheading for the icing will be 2106.90.9997, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for food preparations not elsewhere specified or included...other...other...other...containing sugar derived from sugar cane and/or sugar beets.
