    (1) Milk is used as the sole moistening ingredient in preparing the 
dough; or in lieu of milk one or more of the milk ingredients specified

quantity that the weight of milk solids therein is not less than 3.8 
percent of the weight of the finished milk macaroni product; and

(1) and (2) is used. When the optional ingredient gum gluten (Sec.
