  • Marmite...now, I know that Vegemite is brewery waste; is that what "yeast extract" means here?

    Beef gravy, eh? One time I had a cold and mistook a bowl of turkey gravy for a bowl of refried bean dip, eating about half the bowl along with a bag of chips.

    Any comparisons between Marmite and Vegemite?

      Marmite, Promite and Vegemite are all roughly the same thing: a yeast extract (er, "brewery waste"). They're all rich in the B-vitamins (which makes them an excellent part of an effective hangover cure, along with copious amounts of water).

      I've got a jar of Marmite at home that I occasionally use. Truth be told, the three have a very similar taste, although Marmite is the least tasty of the three. I'd rank them as follows (mostly from memory):

      1. Vegemite
      2. Promite
      3. Marmite
      That distinction may be moot, since all three have a taste similar to condensed solidified soy sauce. :-)

      note to self: remember to take marmite and crackers next time you have a headache...

      • Great Chao, I'm just getting used to non-condensed *liquid* soy sauce...!

        I shall make sure to keep a one-hundred-foot distance between myself and any -mite substances, then.
