Iam developing a dissector

i have used value string

          static const value_string fwd_type_vals[]={
           {0x00,    "undefined" },
           { 0x01,    " Info" },
            { 0, NULL }};

         { &hf_type,
    { "Com Type ", "com_type",FT_UINT8, BASE_HEX, VALS(fwd_type_vals), 0x80, NULL, HFILL }

Iam using Bitmask 0x80 here and when i use to call this i get the output as

               1... .... = com Type : 0x01 (info)

How can i format and display only com Type : 0x01 (info) how to trim/remove this
