RE: The tariff classification of a sauce mix from Canada.

Dear Ms. Justus:

In your letters dated July 5, 2000, and July 31, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted with your first letter was examined and disposed of. The Dry Honey BBQ Sauce Mix FA1882 is a brown colored powder composed of 30-40 percent sugar, 20-30 percent maltodextrin, 5-10 percent each of tomato powder, brown sugar, and salt, 1-5 percent each of molasses solids, wheat starch, honey solids, sodium diacetate, modified corn starch, partially hydrogenated soybean and cottonseed oil, and citric acid, and less than one percent each of spices, silicon dioxide, smoke flavor, paprika, soy flour, onion, caramel color powder, beet color powder, and garlic. The product is packaged in 2.612-pound “bricks”, 10 bricks to a case, and sold to the food service industry. The powder is reconstituted by mixing with hot water, and used as a glaze for breaded and fried poultry products.

The applicable subheading for the Dry Honey BBQ Sauce Mix FA1882 will be 2103.90.9060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sauces and preparations thereforotherother. The rate of duty will be 6.4 percent ad valorem.
