Other ingredients noted on the product label are thickeners, meat extract, coloring agent, and antioxidant. The product is packed for food service use, in canisters containing 1.3 kilograms, net weight. Package and label instructions indicate the powder is added to water, brought to a boil, and simmered for three minutes. The resulting product may be consumed as a full flavored sauce or used as a base for brown or red sauces.

The applicable subheading for this product will be 2103.90.9060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sauces and preparations thereforotherotherother. The rate of duty will be 6.4 percent ad valorem.
