Gluten Free Food Fight

Gluten Free Food Fight

Gluten Free Food Fight

Gluten Free Food Fight

There is a gluten free food fight going on at a federal level.  Bob’s Red Mill has filed a lawsuit to continue using a “gluten-free” logo without paying for certification.

Bob’s Red Mill Natural Foods has filed a lawsuit claiming the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America asserted trademark rights in a “GF” gluten-free symbol that’s similar to a logo used by the company.

The nonprofit sent a letter to Bob’s Red Mill alleging consumers may be “confused into thinking GIG has certified your product as satisfying its gluten-free standards, even though GIG has not,” the complaint said.

Bob’s Red Mill should either stop using the logo or become certified by the nonprofit, the letter said.

The lawsuit claims it’s “somewhat puzzling” that GIG has taken this position because the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office considers the GF symbol as “merely descriptive,” which means the nonprofit “has no right to exclusive use of that mark.”

More than 100 gluten-free products are sold by Bob’s Red Mill, which has “built a separate facility with specialized machinery” for such products and targeted consumers seeking to avoid gluten for three decades, the complaint said.

While there is no federal standard for “gluten-free,” the company only uses such labels for products containing fewer than 19 parts per million of the substance, according to the lawsuit.

Through this gluten free food fight, Bob’s Red Mill is seeking a “declaratory judgment” that it’s not required to pay for certification or cease using the GF logo, which would “require the withholding from store shelves of millions of dollars’ worth of product,” the complaint said. “At a minimum, complying with GIG’s demand would require a significant redesign and marketing process.”

The company has also asked the judge to declare the GF trademark unenforceable and to enter an injunction prohibiting GIG from claiming that others may not use a similar symbol.

Gluten Intolerance Group of North America took in about $3 million, most of it derived from “program service revenue,” during 2016, the most recent year for which its tax information is available.

In 2017, the nonprofit filed a lawsuit over the GF trademark against organizations affiliated with Jamie Oliver, a famous chef, which was dismissed earlier this year subject to an undisclosed agreement.  Source:  Capital Press

UPDATE:

Joint Statement from Bob’s Red Mill and GIG

Gluten Intolerance Group of North America (“GIG”) and Bob’s Red Mill Natural Foods, Inc. (“BRM”) are issuing this joint press release to notify the public that, due to the efforts of both parties, they have quickly settled the lawsuit that was recently brought by BRM against GIG. While the settlement terms are confidential, we can confirm that this was, at all times, a minor business dispute that neither side intended to be picked up by national media or publicized online. The dispute solely concerned the parties’ respective use of trademarks, and the primary goal of both parties was to protect the health and safety of their gluten-sensitive consumers. The gluten-sensitive community is critically important to both GIG and BRM. GIG and BRM leave this dispute the same way they entered it: with mutual respect for each other’s businesses and an utmost concern for the well-being of their consumers.

The story behind The Gluten Free Awards

Celiac Tummy

The story behind The Gluten Free Awards that very few people know.

I remember it like it was yesterday when my four-year-old son Jacob, now thirteen, was playing in the kiddie pool with other kids that I assumed were his age based on their height.  After asking all the surrounding kids what ages

The story behind The Gluten Free Awards
Jacob’s Celiac Tummy

they were, I realized Jacob was significantly smaller than kids his own age.  This prompted my wife and I to seek a professional opinion. After consulting with our family physician, she confirmed that Jacob had essentially stopped growing for an entire year without us realizing it.  He was referred to Jeff Gordon’s Children’s Hospital in Charlotte North Carolina to discuss possible growth hormone therapy.  The doctors there reviewed Jacob’s case and requested a few blood tests based on some suspicions they had.

Our cell phone service at our house was terrible so when the doctor finally called with the blood results, my wife and I ran to the front of the driveway to hear the doctor clearly.  With a sporadic signal, we heard “Jacob has celiac disease.” We looked at each other as tears ran down my wife’s face.  We huddled closer to the phone and asked, “what is celiac disease?”.  After getting a brief description mixed with crappy cell service and happy neighbors waving as they drove by, my wife and I embraced and wept.  We were told to maintain his normal diet until we could have an endoscopy and biopsy for further confirmation.  Once confirmed our next visit was to a registered dietitian for guidance.

Rarely did he feel good
Rarely did he feel good

Jayme, my wife, made the appointment and called me with a weird request.  “Will you meet me at the dietitian’s house for a consultation?”.  I was confused when she said to go to her house. Jayme then explained that the dietician’s daughter had celiac disease too and the best way to show the new lifestyle to patients would be to dive right in.  I’ll admit, it was a bit uncomfortable at first to be in a strangers’ house looking at their personal items but looking back now, I wouldn’t change it for the world. That encounter is ultimately the motivation behind The Gluten Free Awards and the associated Gluten Free Buyers Guide.  We left her house with complete understanding of cross contamination, best practices and what products they personally liked and disliked.  That visit was life changing and left us feeling confident as we made our way to the local health food store.

That first trip shopping took forever. Each label was read and cross checked with our list of known gluten containing suspects.  It was also shocking to see the bill when it was time to pay.  We had replaced our entire pantry and fridge with all products that had the “Gluten Free” label.  We both worked full-time and had decent paying jobs and it still set us back financially.

We looked for support groups locally and came across a “100% Gluten-Free Picnic” in Raleigh, which was two hours away from where we lived.  This was our first time meeting other people with celiac disease and we were fortunate to have met some informative people that were willing to help with the hundreds of questions we had.  We were introduced to a family whose son had been recently diagnosed with celiac disease as well.  His condition was much worse than Jacobs and he was almost hospitalized before finally being diagnosed.  They confided in us as we shared similar stories.  There were two differences that would change my life forever.   The first was the fact that they didn’t have the same experience with a registered dietitian.  Instead they were handed a two-page Xerox copy of “safe foods”.  Second, they didn’t have the financial security to experiment with gluten free counterparts.  Their first two months exposed to the gluten free life style left them extremely depressed and broke.

On our way home from that picnic, Jayme and I felt compelled to help make a difference in some way. We were determined to help that family and others being diagnosed with this disease.  Up until that day, we hadn’t found a resource that gave unbiased opinions on gluten free products and services. Fast forward a few years and I too was diagnosed with celiac disease.  That year, The Gluten Free Awards were born.

Originally our vision was to create a one-page website with a handful of categories organized by peoples’ favorites.  Since 2010 we have produced The Annual Gluten Free Awards (GFA) growing into sixty gluten free categories.  After several requests, in 2014, we took the GFA results and published our first Gluten Free Buyers Guide.  The annual guide is sold primarily in the United States however we continue to see increased global sales.  Each year we have over 3,000 people vote for their favorite gluten free products and we now communicate to nearly 20,000 people weekly through our email list and social media channels.
