Marmite on toast cannot be beaten. It's simply the best. However, Bovril as a hot drink is vile.

I like Marmite. Has a unique taste. I can't quite describe it.

I used to use it to add flavour to my meals by hunking one spoon into my rice and mixing it, cause my mom wouldn't let me flavour my rice with Soya Sauce(Light Sauce).

Vegemite

I resurrected this thread rather than start a new one. :biggrin:

I grew up on Vegemite and occasionally Marmite, and like them both.

Anyway - I thought this was great :rofl:

How much is inside Vegemite?

If you've never tasted Vegemite, the closest experience would be to put a beef bouillon cube in your mouth.

I've never tried vegemite. I liked marmite as a kid-- in fact my mum tells me its the only thing I would eat for a while! Absolutely hate the stuff now. My housemates eat it and leave knives lying around with marmite on and it makes me feel ill!

When I read the linked description, my first response was that I'm glad it's not available in Canada. After Astro's explanation of the taste, however, it's quite possible that I'd like it.

I'm sure Vegemite and Marmite are available in Canada! I know there are Aussies there.

Marmite is disgusting is what it is. I think it's made of marsupial varmintes

Warning! If you experienced any adverse reactions to eating Chinese food (MSG syndrome) do not try either of these products - at least not very much of them at a time. Both yeast extract and vegetable extract are concentrated forms of glutamates

I had it once, and would never eat it again. Unless of course it was the end of the world and there was nothing let to eat. I would chose Marmite over bugs.

Hmmm... I've sure never seen it. If it's really cheap, I might see if I can find a jar to try out.

What is 'MSG syndrome'?
Some people experience numbness or tingling in the extremities, headaches, abdominal cramps or worse. I promptly go into anaphylactic shock and I nearly died in the emergency room of a local hospital because the ER doc didn't believe that MSG could be such a serious problem, and she withheld epinephrine though I begged for it (as much as I could in my condition). By the time my BP got down to about 25 over 15, the ER nurses were hollering at her and she administered epinephrine. That's when I went into convulsions and the doctor and two nurses had to enlist the aid of another person to hold me down. When I woke up hours later, I felt like someone had beaten every inch of my body with a baseball bat. When someone is "passed out" and unresponsive, do not holler "we're losing him" unless you intend for the patient to know their state. I remember most of that afternoon, including the arguments and the panic in the ER.

Are you sure you dont have an allergic reaction to MSG? Most of asia uses MSG in almost all of their food and as far as I am aware, there all fine.

It's not a typical allergy - more like a severe toxic reaction. And I have Native American blood from both sides of my family and probably have more genetic material in common with Asians than most of the US population.

But what Im saying is that its not a toxic substance. Millions use it everyday with no complications. For some reason, your body cant process it; but, I dont think its dangerous.

Millions can eat shellfish, peanuts, etc, or be stung by a bee without adverse reactions, too. Others experience anaphylactic shock and die if they are not treated. Remember, I warned that if people had previously experienced adverse reactions to Chinese food, do not experiment with these spreads because they contain high levels of glutamates. Nowhere did I say these spreads are poisonous, dangerous, etc, but to a subset of people they will cause reactions, and to a smaller subset, they can cause life-threatening reactions.
