As such, it can be safely concluded that the product in question is the preparation of biscuits and properly classifiable under chapter heading of biscuits. Inasmuch as it is not specifically covered by any preceding sub-heading of chapter Heading 1905, the same would be classifiable under Heading 1905.90.
