Marmite Yeast Extract, 4.4 Ounce


Marmite was conceived in 1902 and the Marmite Food Company opened a small factory in Burton-on-Trent where it still resides today.

It took a couple of years to perfect the recipe and for the British public to warm to the spread’s distinctive taste.

Before Louis Pasteur realized that the cells in yeast were in fact living plants, people simply discarded this by-product of the brewing process.

German scientist Liebig then went on to make yeast into a concentrated food product – one that resembled meat extract but was in fact vegetarian.
