Let us thanks, Mr. Terrance F. Lenahan, the inventor of U.S Patent No. 6,080,436, for inventing “Bread Refreshing Method” wherein he presented a novel and unique method of refreshing a bread product by heating the product to a temperature between 2500 Fahrenheit and 4500 Fahrenheit. The bread products are maintained at this temperature range for a period of 3 to 90 seconds.
As per the Patent Law, an inventor can patent a process, the machine, manufacture, or a composition of the subject matter. For the subject matter to be patentable it must be “new”, “novel” or “non-anticipated”, “non-obvious” and have “utility”.
However, for patenting “The Food” it has to pass the test of being novel, useful and not obvious to the person skilled in the art and also it should show some food logical advancement in the art “plus” it should meet the other disclosure requirements for the patentability at the molecular level.
Also, the food can be patented as a composition.
The inventor should count on the improvement of the ingredients involved in the composition and this will state the powerful tools in defining the differences on the molecular level. Regarding nonobviousness requirement for patentability, the inventor must specify that the claimed food is not a routine or usual combination instead this is an advancement over the previously existing disclosed prior foods. Later on, the inventor must provide a complete disclosure of the food invention.
