The powder will be imported in 25-kilogram containers and sold to tablet manufacturers, who will mix the powder with excipients and press it into tablet form. The finished tablets will be exported to China.

The applicable subheading for the Breath of Life Powder will be 2106.90.9998, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for food preparations not elsewhere specified or includedotherotherother. The rate of duty will be 6.4 percent ad valorem.
