Amazing Gluten Free English Muffins are here!

I love all of our New Grains Gluten Free products, Nicole, but our head Executive Chef, went back to the kitchen and created the most amazing, gluten free English Muffin alive! These are soft on the inside, but have a crust that is tough enough so there is a little pull back when you take your bites. It is so moist, that you hardly need to add the butter, but I find myself being generous with the butter and honey. When we make our Egg Muffin Sandwiches, the muffin holds together to the very last bite. English Muffins like this are one of the things we have missed at my house. –roxanne

We are rolling them out into our stores now, but you can ask your store manager to carry them if they aren’t in your store already. Or, you can order direct from our bakery at http://www.newgrains.com. When you order direct, they are usually shipped the day they are made and you usually get them by the second day. Still fresh, and oh so good!

Why Hatch? Why Now? FDA Gluten Free Labeling Law

Dear Celiac Sister or Brother,

I do understand your thoughts and concerns in this matter. I thought long and hard about the issues that are surrounding this case in depth. I wanted to personally respond to your concerns not only as the CEO of New Grains but as a member of the Celiac Community and as a member of the National Board of Directors of the CSA. I too personally do not like the litigious nature that this great Country has gone toward. I am a firm believer in resolving things as adults, calmly and logically reasoning out the best ways to create a win/win for all parties involved. I personally know Senator Hatch now for many years. As most people do when they are concerned about issues of State they call their Congressmen or Senators to ask for their assistance. This issues is not, “a single person’s personal desires” as the spokesman for Hatch said. To try and down play these issues by making this comment was offensive to the whole Celiac Community. This issue, as you know, affects millions of American of all ages, genders and ethnicities. After 6 months of calls, emails and messages there are very few alternatives other than legal to bring pressure to bare on the person or persons responsible for the what I believe to be the miss-use of federal tax dollars for things so far less significant than the processes, testing and ultimately the labeling of Gluten Free Products in this Country. As you probably know I have Refractory Celiac Sprue which is irreversible and now progressive. Please understand that I am not spending my time, money and effort on this issue to merely satisfy me ego and misplaced anger. It is for people like you, my children, our grandchildren and so on that I have chosen to take this cause on. My health is failing every year. At some point I will no longer be, but, I will not go quietly into the night knowing that I could have done more to protect those with Celiac’s Disease and didn’t.

It has been often said, The most egregious atrocities have been committed against mankind, because good people stood by and did nothing!” It may not seem to you or others that this issue is truly egregious in nature. However, I get call after call on my personal cell phone of parents struggling to save the lives of their children with Celiac’s Disease and desperate to find answers. Your version of the Celiac’s Disease may very well not be as sensitive as some of the others that have joined me in this cause. If this is the case then for that I am truly grateful. I know how much I suffer every day and will continue to suffer till my life is over. I know what I am facing with the MS, Early onset dementia and other things that have risen as complications of my type of Celiac’s Disease. I would never want a person especially a child to ever suffer half of what I do every day. So you see, it truly I have now ego in this fight. This is not in any way for me but for those that can’t stand and be heard. I can share with you that in the end whether or not the case is dismissed, the ripple effect will be felt and the much needed attention and soberness of this issue will be heard.

I believe that most politicians when they get started have the best of intentions and have a general altruistic myopic view of the world. After time, even good people put into positions of compromise find that they have become part of the problem that they swore to the voters they would change. I have no issues with Orrin personal. I met Orrin back in 1998 when he was running for his 2nd term for US Senate and I was running for Utah Governor. In answer to your question about why Hatch. In order to have legal standing to file a suit the issues must pass various thresholds. 1st there has to be a sincere belief that there has been a problem that rises to the level of “At Issue” as in the US Supreme will not review the constitutionality of a law unless the issues has risen to the level that they have to adjudicate it. 2nd is if you have legal standing as a person harmed in the action. 3rd is what legal jurisdiction are you in? (Criminal, State, Federal, Civil etc…) Once all that has been determined then you must determine who (you have legal affiliation with) is responsible in a very specific sense. Not just to through a very wide net and ensnare anyone and everyone that would be casually involved but the very narrowed focus of who you can asses blame. Since Orrin is my personal legislative rep of who has refused to address the issues when many opportunities were given is the one that meets that narrowed criteria. Many people including the Utah Attorney General have asked me the same questions, Why Orrin? My answer is the same now as before. He was brought into this issue because of his own personal refusal to address or respond to these issues. The CSA Exe. Chairman actually was in DC earlier this year. I asked Mary to take time out of her busy schedule to stop by Senator Hatch’s office to discuss some of the issues concerning to the Celiac Community. She did as I asked and when she got there she was turned away. I told the Hatches staff that Mary Schluckebier is the Exe. Dir. Of the Largest Celiac Support Group in the US but I can only surmise that my efforts were in vain.

As you can see I have done so much more in preparation to this issue than just go file a lawsuit. Every effort has been made to assist the Senators and his staff in being educated on the issues at hand. The FDA is soon to release the rule allowing things to be Certified as Gluten Free when they truly are not. This means that people will get sick and may even die. That is a problem that I refuse to be part of. On the moral Mandate issues for the FDA They are to protect the citizens of this country from harm. Allowing gluten to be present in a Gluten Free Labeled product is in direct violation of that mandate. By the FDA’s own reports; 1% of the Celiac Community will have an autoimmune response at .02ppm. the FDA is being forced to adopt a standard of 20ppm which based on simple linear math means that 100% of all of the Celiac community will have an Autoimmune Response. Put into simple language is pain, suffering and death! These are not complicated issues to understand or verify.

Our Certified Gluten Free Oats

Many companies out there say that their Oats are Gluten Free. Well, all Oats themselves are gluten free naturally. The issues come in that Oat are rotated into fields that have previously grown wheat, rye, barley etc… The voluntary starts become an issue for cross contamination.

There are only 2 farms in the US that are Certified Fields and Certified Gluten Free Oats. We get ours direct from the best of the 2. This is how this process works:

1. The fields that are under contract have not had a glutinous grain grown there for a min. of the past 4 years.

2. Once planted the Oat umbrella is shorter than the other Glutinous grains so the farm worker and staff walk that fields pulling the voluntary starts out 10 times through the growing season. The last time is right before the thrashing. (Harvest)

3. The oats are tested 6 times by the Elisa Testing to under 3ppm

4. Once that testing is approved the product is brought into the facility and then test in-house 6 times again and 6 times as well by a certified outside facility.

5. The reason that this is such a strict process is because the owner/Founder of the Farms all have Celiac’s disease in their family for generations. 6. The milling and packing is then done is a totally dedicated facility that only processes there oats and none others.

You can feel safe with the Oats, Oat Flour and Oat Groats you get from New Grains Gluten Free Bakery. They are certified gluten free We take care and look into the details, so you can feel confident!

You can order your gluten free certified oats at www.newgrains.com. Enjoy!

Many Small Voices can make a Bigger One in the fight for Gluten Free Labeling

Date: May 23, 2012 12:34:39 PM MDT
To: tim@newgrains.com
Subject: your lawsuit against Orrin Hatch

Dear Mr. Lawson,

My husband heard a news report about your law suit against Senator Orrin Hatch and looked into it on the internet
for more information. I have celiac disease (undiagnosed-I could not get my doctor to test for it even though my sister
has been diagnosed with it!) This disease has stolen my and my sister’s lives from us and we can only help ourselves since there
is not enough research done to convince the doctor’s what a severe problem it is!
I saw the report about the FDA changing the limit for gluten to 20 PPM for labeling food gluten free and wondered why
they could call a food gluten free when it obviously is not even with that small amount. They do not allow this with peanut
allergens do they? They know that people with peanut allergies cannot tolerate even the smallest amount, and I would think they should
know that about celiac disease as well.
We know that if a person with celiac disease buys a food with a gluten free label and gets sick from it, and the gluten content is less than
the FDA allowable 20PPM, they will have no recourse against that maufacture in a suit and this is just wrong! So I would like to support you
in any way I am able in your effort to get this wrong corrected.
I live in rural Northern Nevada and I am sure that my voice is not a very big one, but I would like to add it to your cause. Maybe many small
voices can make a bigger one and count for more. I have no money to help out financally and I have no doctor (or insurance-can’t afford it due
to pre-existing conditions and not old enough for medicare) so don’t have any documentation on the condition to offer, but if there is any way else
I can help please let me know.
I do have a book that may interest you and maybe provide some insight.

“Lose the wheat, lose the weight”

This is an excellent book on the genetic alteration of wheat and the adverse effects it is having on the human body.
Please let me know if there is ANY way I can help you in this cause to help us all!

Thank you for your efforts!
