245.0000 FOOD PRODUCTS—Regulation 1602
(d) SPECIFIC PRODUCTS
245.1483 Hops Used in Brewing Beer. When breweries are the consumers of the beer they produce, ingredients which are food products are exempt even though incorporated into a taxable beverage. Such ingredients as sugar, corn grits, soy bean flakes, etc., are food products meeting this test. Hops are considered a flavoring extract and therefore a food product. Chemical additives are not food products and are subject to tax. 9/26/69. (Am. 2000–1).
