The product is said to be composed of 29.5 percent water, 24.5 percent glucose, 24 percent sugar, 20 percent orange, and .5 percent each of lemon juice concentrate, jasmine, essence, and pectin.

The applicable subheading for this product 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┬containing sugar derived from sugar cane and/or sugar beets. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.
