Are you required to claim RTE or non-RTE on a food ingredient? Although some of a food ingredient company's customers could purchase the ingredients and not process further, if the intended use of your product is as a food ingredient and expected to have further processing, then could you dismiss claiming RTE vs. non-RTE altogether?

You might need to provide some more detail/clarification. Are you saying that your product is NOT ready to eat and you want to know if you need to state that on the label in case customers might use it as RTE?


What is the food ingredient? What is the risk if consumers use the ingredient as RTE?
