Section IV - Chapter 20

Preparations of Vegetables, Fruit, Nuts or Other Parts of Plants

Notes

1.  This chapter does not cover:

  (a). Vegetables, fruit or nuts, prepared or preserved by the processes specified in chapter
        7, 8 or 11;

  (b). Food preparations containing more than 20 percent by weight of sausage, meat,
        meat offal, blood, fish or crustaceans, molluscs or other aquatic invertebrates, or any
        combination thereof (chapter 16);

  (c). Bakers' wares and other products of heading 1905; or

  (d). Homogenized composite food preparations of heading 2104.

2.  Headings 2007 and 2008 do not apply to fruit jellies, fruit pastes, sugar-coated almonds or
     the like in the form of sugar confectionery (heading 1704) or chocolate confectionery
     (heading 1806).

3.  Headings 2001, 2004 and 2005 cover, as the case may be, only those products of chapter 7
     or of heading 1105 or 1106 (other than flour, meal and powder of the products of chapter 8)
     which have been prepared or preserved by processes other than those referred to in note 1
     (a).

4.  Tomato juice the dry weight content of which is 7 percent or more is to be classified in
     heading 2002.

5.  For the purpose of heading 2007 the expression "obtained by cooking" means obtained by
     heat treatment at atmospheric pressure or under reduced pressure to increase the viscosity
     of a product through reduction of water content or other means.

6.  For the purposes of heading 2009, the expression "juices, unfermented and not containing
     added spirit" means juices of an alcoholic strength by volume (see note 2 to chapter 22) not
     exceeding 0.5 percent volume.

Subheading Notes

1.  For the purposes of subheading 2005.10, the expression "homogenized vegetables" means
     preparations of vegetables finely homogenized, put up for retail sale as infant food or for
     dietetic purposes, in containers of a net weight content not exceeding 250 g (8.83 oz.).  For
     the application of this definition no account is to be taken of small quantities of any
     ingredients which may have been added to the preparation for seasoning, preservation or
     other purposes.  These preparations may contain a small quantity of visible pieces of
     vegetables.  Subheading 2005.10 takes precedence over all other subheadings of heading
     2005.

2.  For the purposes of subheading 2007.10, the expression "homogenized preparations"
     means preparations of fruit, finely homogenized, put up for retail sale as infant food or for
     dietetic purposes, in containers of a net weight content not exceeding 250 g (8.83 oz.).  For
     the application of this definition no account is to be taken of small quantities of any
     ingredients which may have been added to the preparation for seasoning, preservation or
     other purposes.  These preparations may contain a small quantity of visible pieces of fruit.
     Subheading 2007.10 takes precedence over the other subheadings of heading 2007.

3.  For the purpose of subheading 2009.12, 2009.21, 2009.31, 2009.41, 2009.61 and 2009.71,
     the expression "Brix value" means the direct reading of degrees Brix obtained from a Brix
     hydrometer or of refractive index expressed in terms of percentage sucrose content
     obtained from a refractometer, at a temperature of 20 degrees C or corrected for 20 degrees
     C if the reading is made at a different temperature.

Statistical Notes

1.  For the purposes of heading 2009, the term "Brix value" means the refractometric sucrose
     value of the juice, adjusted to compensate for the effect of any added sweetening materials,
     and thereafter corrected for acid.

2.  In determining the degree of concentration of mixed fruit juices, the mixture shall be
     considered as being wholly of the component juice having the lowest Brix value.

3.  For the purposes of heading 2009, the term "liters" in the "Units of Quantity" column of the
     provisions applicable to fruit juices means liters of natural unconcentrated juice or liters of
     reconstituted juice.

4.  The term "reconstituted fruit juice" means the product which can be obtained by mixing the
     exported concentrate with water in such proportion that the product will have a Brix value
     equal to that found by the Secretary of the Treasury from time to time to be the average Brix
     value of like natural unconcentrated juice in the trade and commerce of the United States.

5.  In determining the number of liters of reconstituted fruit juice which can be obtained from a
     concentrate, the degree of concentration shall be calculated on a volume basis to the
     nearest 0.5 degree, as determined by the ratio of the Brix value of the exported
     concentrated juice to that of the reconstituted juice, corrected for differences of specific
     gravity of the juices.  Any juice having a degree of concentration of less than 1.5 (as
     determined before correction to the nearest 0.5 degree) shall be regarded as a natural
     unconcentrated juice.
