...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 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.

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 make my old recipes all the time.   The only thing you have to be sure of is if your flour mix has xanthan gum or not.   If it doesn't then you will need to add a bit per cup.   Don't use too much or it will get gummy or spongy  (it's powerful stuff!!!)  Xanthan gum (or guar gum) is used in gluten-free baking because it is a binding agent that gives baked goods elasticity.

      Add 1/2 tsp. per cup of flour blend for cakes, cookies, bars, muffins.
      Add 1 Tsp. per cup if you are making yeast bread, pizza dough, other baked goods that call for yeast.
    • Try using the gluten-free blends in a about 1 to one replacement, first start off with about 1/4 less then add by the tbsp til the texture is about right, as gluten-free flours sometimes cause the end result to be a bit drier. I honestly make a sugar cookie with almond flour that works great for the holidays, I do not use dairy or creamy butter so mine is a bit drier and crsiper then those from my childhood (yes I miss those) But it helps a bit with that craving. I might dig up mine, they are grain free with a deep nutty flavor and drier PERFECT for dipping in coffee or almond milk.
    • Unfortunately it's too late for the blood test unless I go back on gluten again, which is not something I want to do.   Thanks for the link you shared. It is instructive.
    • Hi Jmg, and thanks for your response.   2 weeks ago I went gluten free without having tested for celiac. I know now that that was a mistake but unfortunately I did not know at the time. As I have been informed, to do a blood test one have to be on gluten for at least 6 weeks prior to the test.   In any case, by the end of the first gluten free week, I felt exceptional improvements in typical IBS symptoms. I had higher energy, and I generally felt much better. By the end of the second week, however, some of the symptoms began to recur, like fatigue and upset stomach.    I know I am a noob and probably I should wait longer for my system to stabilise, so, I apologise if my post is noobish.
    • VERY much so. as me and poster boy can both attest just because levels are normal does not mean you do not need more. HECK their was even talk about raising the FDA recommended daily value of it as it was the suggested minimum. Either Docters best glycinate before bed or if you have C issues or no D issues then perhaps natural vitality calm citrate version in small doses at first before adjusting up.
