On September 20, 2006, the Patent Hawk website posted its opinion about enforcing Yoon Ja Kims patent, RE36,355, against ConAgra Foods, Inc. Kim subsequently e-mailed Patent Hawk her comments and Kims letter to Mr. Steven Nelson, CEO of American Association of Cereal Chemists. Patent Hawk then created a new blog,Still Rising, that included her comments and letter at http://www.patenthawk.com/blog/archives/2006/... on October 29, 2006.
In summary, Kims bromate replacer comprising ascorbic acid and food acid performs essentially the same function as potassium bromate in the manufacture of yeast-leavened bread. Kim conducted baking tests with different food acids on dough development of gluten proteins during dough production, and crumb grain and texture in finished bread characteristics. Her investigative test results together with other published results revealed that unclaimed ingredients used in bread production do not materially affect the basic and novel properties of her invention. In fact, ConAgra obtained the desirable dough properties and specific loaf volumes of the marketable 7-Grain, Whole Grain, and Natural breads using her potassium bromate replacer I (i.e., ascorbic acid and tartaric acid or acetic acid of Example 1 in the '355 patent), but not xylanase enzyme. Thus, ConAgras Healthy Choice bread mixes are infringing on claims 5 and 10 of Kims patent.

Please make a necessary correction as noted in my comment. Thank you.
