Limited Ingredient Calculation Worksheet: Guidance and Examples

A Limited Ingredient Calculation Worksheet is a tool to facilitate the approval of a beverage alcohol formula containing one or more compounded flavors. It calculates the total amounts of ingredients that have limits on their use per TTB and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements.

The worksheet is also useful as a product development tool. By using the worksheet, you can confirm that new formulas are in compliance with requirements, and determine whether a flavor will be labeled as artificial, prior to submitting the formula to TTB.
