Such packing media may be used as such or any one or any combination of

which a standard of identity has been established in part 168 of this 
chapter shall comply with such standard in lieu of any definition that 
may appear in Sec.  145.3.
    (2) When a sweetener is added as a part of any such liquid packing 
medium, the density range of the resulting packing medium expressed as 
percent by weight of sucrose (degrees Brix) as determined by the 
procedure prescribed in Sec.  145.3(m) shall be designated by the 
appropriate name for the respective density ranges, namely:
    (i) When the density of the solution is less than 20 percent, the 
medium shall be designated as ``slightly sweetened water''; or ``extra 
light sirup''; ``slightly sweetened fruit juice(s) and water''; or 
``slightly sweetened fruit juice(s)'', as the case may be.
    (ii) When the density of the solution is 20 percent or more but less 
than 24 percent, the medium shall be designated as ``light sirup''; 
``lightly sweetened fruit juice(s) and water''; or ``lightly sweetened 
fruit juice(s)'', as the case may be.
    (iii) When the density of the solution is 24 percent or more but 
less than 30 percent, the medium shall be designated as ``heavy sirup'';

fruit juice(s)'', as the case may be.

    (c) Labeling requirements. (1) The name of the food is ``prunes--
prepared from dried prunes''. The words ``prepared from dried prunes'' 
shall be in close proximity to the word ``prunes'' and shall be of the 
same style and not less than \1/2\ of the point size of the type used 
for the word ``prunes''. The name of the food shall also include a 
declaration of any flavoring that characterizes the product as specified 
in Sec.  101.22 of this chapter and a declaration of any spice or 
seasoning that characterizes the product; for example, ``Spice added'', 
or in lieu of the word ``Spice'', the common name of the spice, 
``Seasoned with vinegar'' or ``Seasoned with unpeeled pieces of citrus 
fruit''. When two or more of the optional ingredients specified in 
paragraphs (a) (2) through (4) of this section are used, such words may 
be combined as for example, ``Seasoned with cider vinegar, cloves, 
cinnamon oil and unpeeled pieces of citrus fruit.''
    (2) When the food is prepared with a packing medium, the name of the 
packing medium specified in paragraphs (b) (1) and (2) of this section, 
preceded by ``In'' or ``Packed in'' and the words ``cooked'', 
``stewed'', or ``prepared'', shall be included as part of the name or in 
close proximity to the name of the food. When no packing medium is used, 
the words ``solid pack'' or ``moist pack'' or the word ``moistened'' 
followed by the words ``without sirup'' shall be included as part of the 
name or in close proximity to the name of the food. When the packing 
medium is prepared with a sweetener(s) which imparts a taste, flavor or 
other characteristic to the finished food in addition to sweetness, the 
name of the packing medium shall be accompanied by the name of such 
sweetener(s), as for example in the case of a mixture of brown sugar and 
honey, an appropriate statement would be ``------ sirup of brown sugar 
and honey'', the blank to be filled in with the word ``light'', 
``heavy'', or ``extra heavy'' as the case may be. When the liquid 
portion of the packing media provided for in paragraphs (b) (1) and (2) 
of this section consists of fruit juice(s), such juice(s) shall be 
designated in the name of the packing medium as:
    (i) In the case of a single fruit juice, the name of the juice shall 
be used in lieu of the word ``fruit'',
    (ii) In the case of a combination of two or more fruit juices, the 
names of the juices in the order of predominance by weight shall either 
be used in lieu of the word ``fruit'' in the name of the packing medium, 
or be declared on the label as specified in paragraph (c)(3) of this 
section, and
    (iii) In the case of the single fruit juice or a combination of two 
or more fruit juices any of which are made from concentrate(s), the 
words ``from concentrate(s)'' shall follow the word ``juice(s)'' in the 
name of the packing medium and in the name(s) of such

[[Page 437]]

juice(s) when declared as specified in paragraph (c)(3) of this section.
    (3) Whenever the names of the fruit juices used do not appear in the 
name of the packing medium as provided in paragraph (c)(2)(ii) of this 
section, such names and the words ``from concentrate'', as specified in 
paragraph (c)(2)(iii) of this section, shall appear in an ingredient

chapter.
    (4) Label declaration. Each of the ingredients used in the food 
shall be declared on the label as required by the applicable sections of 
parts 101 and 130 of this chapter.
