It is stated to contain palm oil, which has been refined, bleached and deodorized, butter flavor in an oil base, an antioxidant, and vitamins A and D. The product has the appearance of a paste and it will be used for frying and cooking foods.

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 John Maria at 212-466-5730.
