COCOA ; COCOA PRODUCTS, e.g. CHOCOLATE ; SUBSTITUTES FOR COCOA OR COCOA PRODUCTS ; CONFECTIONERY ; CHEWING GUM ; ICE-CREAM ; PREPARATION THEREOF
NOTE
-
In this subclass, the following term is used with the meaning indicated:
- "ice-cream" includes any edible frozen or congealed semi-liquid or pasty substance, e.g. slush ice

In this subclass, subject matter which cannot be completely classified in a single one of the main groups should be classified in each relevant main group


The classification symbols of groups:
A23G 1/305 , A23G 1/56 , A23G 3/343 , A23G 3/346, A23G 4/062 , A23G 9/322 and A23G 9/52
can be followed by additional symbols preceded by the sign "+", e.g. A23G 1/56 +D8. The symbols give further information concerning structure, composition or form and have the meaning as listed below:
D . Containing organic compounds
D2 .. containing micro-organisms, enzymes
D4 .. containing vitamins, antibiotics
D6 .. containing beet sugar or cane sugar if specifically mentioned; containing other carbohydrates, e.g. starches, gums, alcohol sugar, polysaccharides, dextrins
D8 .. containing cocoa fat if specifically mentioned; containing products of cocoa fat; containing other fats, e.g. fatty acid, fatty alcohol, their esters, lecithin, paraffins
D10 .. containing amino-acids, proteins, e.g. gelatine, polypeptides
D12 .. containing dairy products
D14 .. containing fruits, nuts, e.g. almonds, seeds, plants or their extracts (gums D6)
F . Containing inorganic compounds
H . Products with special structure
H2 .. foamed, gas-expanded or cellular products
H4 .. products with a supported structure
H4D ... products with an inedible support, e.g. a stick
H4F ... products with an edible support, e.g. a cornet
H6 .. products with a composite structure, e.g. laminated products
H8 .. hollow products, e.g. with inedible or edible filling, fixed or movable within the cavity
