Yeast Marmite is a dark brown-colouredsavoury spread made from yeast; it is a by-product of the brewing industry. It has a very strong, slightly salty flavour. It is definitely a love-it-or-hate-it type of food. It comes in small (2-5 inches high) bulb-shaped glass jars with a distinctive yellow lid. Marmite is made from Yeast Extract Salt, Vegetable Extract, Vitamin, Niacin, Spices and Vitamins: B1, B2, Folic Acid and B12.
How to Select
• It is made by different companies in different parts of the world, and often to a different recipe. Hence read the contents and choose from the various options available.
• The most common use is as a spread on toast or in sandwiches.
• It is generally spread very thinly because of its strong flavour; don't use it like jam.
• It can turn out to be addictive for some; the more you eat, the thicker you need to spread it to get the same mouth-burning effect.
• It is also delicious spread on hot buttered crumpets or crackers.
• Dip raw spaghetti in Marmite and then eat; it’s tasty!
• A teaspoon of Marmite can also be added to soups, casseroles, and almost any savoury food for a wonderful, rich flavouring.
How to Store
• Marmite may be stored at room temperature, even after the jar has been opened.
• Large jars will last for months-even years-without any spoilage.
• However, old marmite can turn hard and may not be spreadable.
