Dear Ms. Flores:

In your letter dated December 18, 1997, on behalf of your client Caribbean Refrescos, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Calcium disodium edetate, also known as Disodium ((N,N'-1,2-ethanediylbis (N-(carboxymethyl) glycinato))calciate is used as a color retention agent in foods.

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