Marmite is a product that divides the nation to this day, and it’s a store-cupboard staple in many houses across the country. You can spread on toast or crackers, or you can even add it to your favourite savoury stews and sauces to improve their flavour!
Marmite products can be hard to come by in other countries, so we’ve sourced the most-loved Marmite food and merchandise, so you can enjoy this tasty spread all over the world.
What is Marmite Made Of?
Many of us are familiar with the look, taste and smell of Marmite, but do you know what gives it that distinctive flavour profile? Concentrated yeast extract.
The yeast extract that is used to make Marmite is a by-product of the beer-brewing process, and it was invented by accident. Nowadays, Marmite is primarily made up of yeast extract, but it also contains salt, vegetable extract, celery extract and a combination of vitamins and minerals to give it that recognisable flavour.
Is Marmite High in Salt?
The Original Marmite formula contains 0.86g of salt per 8g serving. This helps to give it that unique savoury flavour, however, it presents problems for those who need to stick to a low-sodium diet. As a result, the company introduced low-salt Marmite to help those with more complicated nutritional needs.
