...and of course Irish.

How do you enjoy it? Or better yet....CAN you eat it? It's supposed to be gluten-free, and it doesn't bother me....yet, but how 'bout you?

I'm australian and therefore used to be a happy little vegemite... alas, no more (vegemite is not gluten free) I'm not bothering witht the gluten free versions because in my experience, the type of spread you eat (marmite, vegemite etc) depends on what you were given as a little kid and all the others taste awful! I used to love it on vita wheat biscuits with butter, when you squeezed them together they made little worms ;-) I also loved it on toast. Vegemite is now one of those childhood things that I'll never ever have again... but I have fond memories so I'm ok about it :P

Vegemite isn't gluten free? That's another difference from Marmite. Marmite is, at least as far as I know. But I know what you mean. For me, just looking at the marmite picture brings a lot of nostalgia!

I'm pretty sure it's an extract from barley. There is a gluten free version though (made by another company)

I thought they were both yeast extracts...so Vegemite is not. I have to look for the gluten free version, now I'm curious!

I'm not sure where you are from but you need to be very very careful with MARMITE. Marmite sold in Australia made by sanitarium is NOT gluten free, this version is sold in a large jar with a orange lid. However the English version of Marmite which is sold in some supermarkets here is gluten free. This version is in a small boulbus shaped jar with a yellow lid. To avoid confusion with the other sort, the english one has been rebranded as Our Mate in most Australian stores. There are however some shops, such as lolly shops who it labeled marmite.

There is a gluten-free spread called mightymite which is meant to be like vegemite. Personally I buy the english marmite becuse I like it better.

Hope I haven't made this more confusing for anyone.

Freedom Foods Vege Spread is a gluten-free vegemite replacement.

Three333Threes Mightymite is a gluten-free vegemite replacement.

Vegemite is made from yeast grown on barley and barley malt extract.

Marmite contains derivatives of barley and wheat.

I thought Marmite was gluten free in the UK but I might be wrong. I must buy a copy of the food directory.

Unless it has changed in the last month or two it is. As I mentioned in a previous post there is a product sold in Australia called Marmite but this slightly different to the UK version and not gluten free.

Remember when posting about a particular product it is often helful to add in which country you are in. This helps to avoid confusion as in the above case there can be different products that share the same name, or the product may different ingredients in another country. A good example of this is M&Ms been gluten free in the US but not in Australia.

I am a promite girl, it is the only thing I truly miss, with sweet and sour rye, lashings of butter and just a thing spread of promite - my all time favourite comfort food:(

Beebs, are you from Victoria? In my family the NSW raised kids were vegemite kids, but the victorian branch of the family were promite kids.

I hope for you that it's gluten free!

Thank goodness I could never stomach any of the "mites" as a kid - a cheese and marmite sandwich was an automatic trade :rolleyes:

Ah, I see :)

You can't get Vegemite here, so I dunna haveta worry. I do buy the one with yellow lid, pot-belly.

But I love it, though it does take a while to finish off a jar, because I like it subtly, not thickly, though if I did spread it thickly I wouldn't complain :P

    • I will just stick with christopherbean company, the fact the main sales rep I talk to has celiac in the family means a lot, she said they use it all the time. I tested some of the iffiest flavored version grounds for gluten all negative. NOT had any issues drinking all kinds of coffee from their company in the past few months. FACT the flavored ones actually taste like what they say and just need a bit of sweetener is making me a coffee addict again lol. Clearing a pot a day so far and looking forward to each day wondering what flavor I should do >.> today was banana foster coffee, its 7 am and i already am on my third cup. If your still in doubt just buy their beans and grind your self.  I am grateful for the guy that started this thread as he ended up motivating me to start my campaign to find a gluten-free flavored coffee, where I ended up emailing several companies, I still saved 2 of the replies from companies saying DO NOT drink our coffee if you have celiac. Sorta funny how that brought up the issue and proved some points about gluten in the coffee industry.
    • Ch88 yes im  glad i had the blood test but it was found by accident so bit of a shock when i found out. God knows how long i had it but i always remember as a child suffering from stomach pain alot but back in the eighties it was unheard off!  But if you or any other membets can offer advice on what happens after the biopsy it would be much appreciated.
    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal.
