I am translating a text for my job, and it mentions Marmite...
Never heard of. What is the taste? I found something on Wiki, but I would like to hear from you. What is it similar to? Looks like barley malt, but they say it is salty...
Thanks

It's gross. It's been years since I've had it, but from what I remember it's like a very condensed stout (dark beer) and soy sauce broth.

Isn't marmite a form of vegimite? An Austrailian sandwich spread made out of a LOT of salt and nutritional yeast?

It's definitely not nutritional yeast, it's the same yeast that's used in making beer.

they recommend it in Men's Health as the source of vitamins B1, B2, B3, AND B12! as "brain boosting" food :lol: :lol: :lol:
I translate Men's Health in Serbian for money, and I read lots of bullshit there, sometimes its painful to translate, but I have to earn money :lol:
OK, so Marmite is like shit. It looks like barley malt on picture, so I will just put barley malt instead, there's no Marmite here to buy anyway...
Thanks!

I LOVE marmite! Great for cooking! :P Yummy!

If you have problems using soy sauce in food, you can replace it with marmite (please note it's sticky and not liquid) and you'll have the same kind of umami taste but with different twist.

Yup, it is very similar to Vegemite. It's an acquired taste... like natto...

I'm in vege's camp: it's nasty stuff. But then, I've been known to salt my raw muesli, so.... :lol:

I am an Aussie, so I will clear it up briefly.

Marmite is a sandwich spread similar to vegemite, being that it is savoury and extremely salty.

They are both very low in calories per serving; around 10 calories.

Vegemite is known as the "Aussie Spread" and consists of essentially salt and yeast.

I grew up with vegemite and can say it tastes great on toast with some sunflower butter, however use it sparingly as it has a few hundred milligrams of sodium per serve.

Marmite is the English version of vegemite.

Both contain B-vitamins (Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12).

What varies between them essentially, are the levels of sodium and sugar.

Since you are below the equator, do you spread it counterclockwise? Just teasing. :lachmal:

Do people cook with this stuff or is it just for spreading? I admit to a lack of knowledge.

It's usually just used as a spread. I have seen it in recipes... but they're generally "novelty" sort of junky recipes put out by the company to try to sell more products... Vegemite is becoming a popular condiment and cooking ingredient in Japan apparently.
