Milk drinks (HS 0403 and 0404)

Proyecto de Resolución Conjunta "Código Alimentario Argentino (CAA) - Capítulo VIII "Alimentos Lácteos" - Artículo 578: Bebidas Lácteas" (Draft Joint Resolution "Argentine Food Code (CAA) - Chapter VIII 'Dairy Foods' - Article 578: Milk drinks") (13 pages, in Spanish)

The notified draft Joint Resolution, prepared by the National Food Commission (CONAL), amends Article 578 in order to clarify the sales description of certain categories of milk drinks and, in particular, of drinks containing added fermented milk, which gives the end product distinctive characteristics, yet does not lead to its classification as a fermented milk drink. In the same vein, those products classed as milk drinks that contain fermented drinks as ingredients and that subsequently undergo heat treatment may not display the name of the fermented drink on the label.
