                      Subpart A_General Provisions
Sec.  130.9  Sulfites in standardized food.

    (a) Any standardized food that contains a sulfiting agent or 
combination of sulfiting agents that is functional and provided for in 
the applicable standard or that is present in the finished food at a 
detectable level is misbranded unless the presence of the sulfiting 
agent or agents is declared on the label of the food. A detectable 
amount of sulfiting agent is 10 parts per million or more of the sulfite 
in the finished food. The level of sulfite in the finished food will be 
determined using sections 20.123 through 20.125, ``Sulfurous Acid 
(Total) in Food Modified Monier-Williams Method Final Action'' in 
``Official Methods of Analysis of the

Association of Official Analytical Chemists,'' 14th ed. (1984), which is

part 51, and the refinements of the ``Total Sulfurous Acid'' procedure 
in the ``Monier-Williams Procedure (with Modifications) for Sulfites in 
Foods,'' which is appendix A to part 101 of this chapter. A copy of 
sections 20.123 through 20.125 of the ``Official Methods of Analysis of 
the Association of Official Analytical Chemists'' is available from AOAC

    (b) Any standardized food that, as a result of actions that are 
consistent with current good manufacturing practice, contains an 
indirectly added sulfiting agent that has no functional effect in the 
food and that would, in the absence of Sec.  101.100(a)(4) of this 
chapter, be considered to be an incidental additive for purposes of 
Sec.  130.8, conforms to the applicable definition and standard of 
identity if the presence of the sulfiting agent is declared on the label 
of the food.
