more intriguing results from my never ending research into the various 'mites'
There are 3 types of yeast extract in NZ/Australia - vegemite, marmite and promite
They're basically all the same, BUT.
Marmite is sweeter than vegemite
Promite is sweeter then marmite
They're all extremely salty tasting.
Vegemite eaters will eat marmite at a pinch, but marmite eaters tend not to be able to stomach vegemite
Vegemite: (Kraft General Foods NZ Ltd)
Yeast extract, salt, malt extract, colour(caramel), vegetable flavours, vitamins (niacin, thiamine, riboflavin)
Marmite: (Sanatarium Health Food Company, NZ)
Yeast, sugar, salt, wheatgerm extract, mineral salt (508) colour(caramel), herbs, spices, vitamins (niacin, thiamin, riboflavin)
It's also got a small note under the ingredients: "100% vegetarian" (but then, what do you expect from a company owned by the 7th Day Adventist church?)
Promite: (Masterfoods of Australia)
Vegetable protein extract, sugar, yeast, natural colour(caramel) salt, thickener (Wheat starch), emulsifier (Glycerol monostearate) spices, added vitamins, water
Other countries' versions may vary....
There is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar.
