Has anyone every tried this
Never knew it was for sale.
If spread on regular home made bread I bet it might taste a bit like sourdough.
SO @HK_User you have eaten it? I tried it. on celery, a bit strong but tasty, savory.
Not this as a product but out of a Mother Starter.
It is the British analogue of Vegemite... I little bit goes a long way...spread it thinly on bread and toast....don't lay it on with a trowel as some might with peanut butter.
Both Marmite and Vegemite make a pleasant broth...and both, in moderation can be used as a flavouring in soups, stews and casseroles.

15 Incredibly Easy And Inventive Marmite Recipes
Marmite and vegemite are quite salty, so where a recipe includes salt, you might have to adjust the salt quantity a little to compensate for the saltiness of the Marmite/Vegemite.
Vegemite comes in jars...but for hiking, there is a convenient tube. Perfect for backpacking, camp cooking on the road.
Marmite and Vegemite have a long shelf life and has been said before...rich in Vitamin B12 however, folk who have health issues with high sodium chloride intake should probably avoid these products...note the product nutritional details accordingly.
Concerning sodium intake: Too, too, too much salt is clearly bad. However a ceertain amount of salt in necessary to maintain the electrolyte balance.
Doctors say "no salt" whenever someone has high blood pressure. That's a knee-jerk reaction. Studies have shown that only 10% of people who have high blood pressure are adversely affected by normal amounts of salt.
Sea Salt is usually a healthier choice because commercial iodized salt contains silicon dioxide (finely powdered silica sand).
Himalayan sea salt is pinkish colored (MOL) because it contains the remains of fossil microflora. At five to twenty times the normal price, it's a hustle. I think the microflora is essentially just diatoms, which are primarily calcium carbonate, and neither particularly harmful or especially beneficial.
In any case a nibble of Marmite will have a lot less salt in than a bag of potato chips. Like anything else, consume the right amount.
Marmite is evil nasty stuff
B12 is in most meats & animal products (cream, eggs, cheese etc) so i get plenty without torturing myself.
When working hard in the summer I can get an imbalance head ache(electrolyte balance). I take 1 salt tablet and the head ache goes away in 15 minutes.
When working along the Coast in high humidity my shirt can become salt stained in a coupe of hours so I need to have a ready source to replace the salt/sodium and potassium.
Yesterday after working clearing trees and brush I checked BP.
130/80 Pulse 90.
Yes I take BP Meds and a lot of water.
Not bad for a heart valve repair and a couple of stints.
After all, I have 40 round bales coming in this afternoon and they gotta go in my now enlarged hay yard.
Cows lives matter and they need to eat too, I expect to deliver 12 head to the auction barn before Christmas and 12 more right after new years in 6 head trips.
Vegemite is one of the richest sources of B vitamins, specifically thiamine, riboflavin, niacin and folate (B1, B2, B3 & B9, respectively). Unlike Marmite and some other yeast extracts, the base version contains no vitamin B12 although both B6 and vitamin B12 are added to the low-salt formulation.
The main ingredient of Vegemite is yeast extract, which contains a high concentration of glutamic acid, the source of Vegemite's rich umami flavour. Vegemite does not contain any fat, added sugar or animal content. It contains gluten (a composite of storage proteins).
Vegemite contains 3.45% sodium, which equates to a salt content of approximately 8.6%. Australia only defines low salt foods, but by UK standards Vegemite is classified as a high salt content food.
The low-salt version of Vegemite with a distinctive pale orange lid was introduced to the Australian domestic market in September 2014, offering a 25% reduction in sodium content. The low-salt version is also fortified with vitamins B6 and vitamin B12.
Vegemite contains 2.3% potassium.
Thanks @HK_User I did not realize they added B12
Kinda does away with the "all natural" Madison Ave Add Agency bull.
Then again the Asparagus Sandwich is "Normal" in Ozz.
After thinking about it for a while I remembered the Aussie food, once owned by KRAFT was a mainstay for us. Another place and time event!
Also the same Mother Company makes the canned cheese we buy and maybe the butter.
Interesting! Me thinks a blended Lard would do about the same thing with out all the extras and you could exclude most of the stuff you don't want! Taste would be pretty tame depending on the animal base! Cool idea and a product I wasn't aware of!
Lard? This is a Vegan Product
Lard? The as advertised has no fat.
What would you not want?
Yuck Yuck you must be kidding.
Bear fat or tallow, jerky/biltong and gorp would start you towards pemmican. Add salt, spent yeast from the still and blend to a paste . Might be good(ish).
Shouldn't be terrible if you were hungry.....
LOL now we are in to 'desperate times recipes'
You guys are so funny.
I was just trying to figure out how and why I would eat it.
@Ganado this is a better deal: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00C6817HY/?tag=survivalmonke-20
How to Enjoy Vegemite
Understand this is a condiment not a singular product so go easy on it.
Toast and Butter can be bland but add either variety for a mouth full of taste.
For those who use Bullion Cubes this is a great replacement for soups or stews.
If you spread it on toast you need to be able to see the toast.
I recommend the low salt Ha HA variety.
That and Vegemite are a ACQUIRED taste !!
As @runswithdogs knows .. Try a free sample only & keep your money .
No good use other than stopping teething critters , but then your slippers stink !
Vegamite and Marmite are both great products makes a bland egg or cheese dish very tasty, highly nutritous and endlessly entertaining watching Americans try to eat the stuff they were not raised on.LOL
Also as others have said like bullion they can make a hearty broth as well.
My grandma had to trick me into eating the stuff with just a little more each time on my cheese sandwich thinking she must have accidentaly got some on the butter knife when making my sandwich I finally decided this was pretty good and now i can eat it by the spoonfull.
