Sanitarium Foods, a cereal company owned by the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Australia, has lost its two-year legal battle to keep Australian bakeries, restaurants, and grocery stores from using the word "granola."
The denomination trademarked "granola" as an "invented word" in 1921; this week, a federal judge disagreed, saying the word can be "easily found in dictionaries," reports Adventist Today.
The Adventist church plans to keep defending its intellectual property.
