It was in 1902 that the Marmite Food Company (later Marmite Ltd) was set up in Burton on Trent. Their mission, then as now, was to share the joy of Marmite-eating and make it available to all those with excellent taste. Made from concentrated brewer's yeast, vitamins, and vegetable flavorings, Marmite is an intense, savory spread that's perfect for adding extra flavor to your morning toast.
YEAST SPREADS Another umami-rich ingredient, yeast extract spreads such as Marmite or Vegemite are most commonly put on toast. But chefs recognize their potent yeasty saltiness as a perfect ingredient to equalize the sweetness in cakes, and they add a layer of richness to savory ragus and casseroles. Marmite is also put in sashimi marinades.
