Marmite

Scientists have labelled Marmite a “superfood” because of its nutritional value. Marmite contains a few simple ingredients: yeast extract, salt, vegetable extract, spices, and B vitamins.

Marmite is gluten free, vegetarian and low in calories, providing nearly 50% of the recommended daily allowance for folic acid per serving. It is popular to eat it spread paper thin on toast or to eat it paired with cheese or butter.

If you are not British you might not know what Marmite is. If you are British, you will either love it or hate it. We love it, as do a lot of our customers. This is one of our top selling products. It is made from the by-products of the Beer brewing industry, and supplies have been impacted by the Covid-19 quarantine rules, as Pubs are not open, so not ordering beer. If beer is not being brewed, there is less Marmite that can be produced.

For those who do not know it, we are often asked what it can be used for. Here are our top tips for it:

  1. spread on toast, super thin and top with a slice of cheddar cheese – delicious.
  2. add a spoonful to a beef casserole, or even a lentil stew for that extra boost of vitamins and taste.
  3. Add hot water and make a soup
  4. Cure a hangover with this mix popular in Sri Lanka: mix Marmite in hot water, add lime juice and fried sliced onion and drink.

  1. Can not wait to test these recipies!! One day when Marmite will be largely supplied

  2. If you can not get marmite, Switzerland has Cenovis which is almost the same.

    1. thanks for the tip. Marmite is one of those products that you either love or hate, as we mention in our blog post on it. I am not sure how many Brits will switch to cenovis, but you never know. We have managed to secure some marmite this year, despite the shortage. As a tip Coop also has it, in small jars only 🙂
