Where can I find out exactly what an ingredient must be declared

Customer Question

Where can I find out exactly what an ingredient must be declared as in the ingredient statement? For example, what can be listed under just 'spices' instead of detailed out or can Pepitas be called Pumpkin Seeds? Where is a good on-line link/resource for this? It doesn't seem to be under the CFR Title 21. Thanks!

Hi
My name is ***** ***** I am happy to assist you.
Is Pepitas the Ingredient you are asking about?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No, I need a general resource to go to so that I may build proper ingredient statements whenever I need to. Where can I find the 'rules' of ingredient standards and such? Thanks!
