USDA AMS Quality Specifications - Dairy Products  
Dairy product quality specifications establish minimum acceptable requirements for products not covered by a grade standard. They serve as a guide to quality for consumers, and may also be used in government procurement activities. The Dairy Grading Branch may use these specifications to evaluate products, and those meeting the requirement of the specification may bear an official quality shield.
