RE:Á???????ÁThe tariff classification of gum from Denmark.

Dear Mr. Alberti:

Á???????ÁIn your letter dated December 1, 2000, on behalf of Scan Lab Inc. Clearwater, FL, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Á???????ÁSamples and a brochure accompanied your letter. The samples were examined and disposed of. Scan Lab brand Moisture Aid Plus (peppermint) and Dental Health Gum (watermelon, cherry, peppermint and spearmint) are each composed of sorbitol, gum base, xylitol, malitol syrup, carbamide, flavorings, titanium dioxide, aspartame, acesulfame©K and carnuba wax. The Dental Health Gum also contains citric acid, malic acid, lactic acid, and lecithin. The gum is put up in foil©backed blister packs, 12 pieces with a cardboard wrap, or 36 pieces to a box. The gum is said to neutralize plaque acids to reduce the formation of plaque, re-mineralize tooth enamel, and freshen breath.

The rate of duty will be 6.4 percent ad valorem. The rate of duty will be unchanged in 2001.
