(v) Any of the optional sweetening ingredients designated in paragraphs (c)(1) (i), (ii), and (iii) of this section with corn sirup or with dried corn sirup or with glucose sirup or with dried glucose sirup, or with any two or more of these: Provided, That the weight of the solids of corn sirup, dried corn sirup, glucose sirup, dried glucose sirup or the sum of the weights of the solids of corn sirup, dried corn sirup, glucose sirup, and dried glucose sirup, in case two or more of these are used, does not exceed one-fourth of the total weight of the solids of the combined sweetening ingredients.

(d)(1) The name of the food is "Preserved Figs--Precooked in Sirup". For the purpose of label declaration, the words "Precooked in Sirup" may appear immediately below the words "Preserved Figs", but there shall be no intervening written, printed, or graphic matter, and the letters used for the words "Precooked in Sirup" shall be of the same type style and not less than one-half the height of the letters in the words "Preserved Figs".

(2) The label shall indicate which optional fig ingredient specified in paragraph (b) of this section is used.

(e) Wherever the name of the food appears on the label so conspicuously as to be easily seen under customary conditions of purchase, the words herein specified, showing the optional fig ingredient used, shall immediately and conspicuously precede or follow such name without intervening written, printed, or graphic matter, except that the varietal name of the figs may so intervene.

(f) Label declaration. Each of the ingredients used in the food shall be declared on the label as required by the applicable sections of parts 101 and 130 of this chapter.
