Marmite


Marmite – Love it or hate it

Marmite is a dark brown-colored savory spread with a very strong, slightly salty flavor made from yeast and is definitely a love-it-or-hate-it type of food.

How it all started?

  • 1902, the Marmite Food Company Limited was born and a small factory was opened in Burton, UK.
  • Marmite got a boost with the discovery of vitamins in 1912. Yeast was discovered to be a great source of five important 'B' vitamins*. As a result Marmite was included in soldiers' ration packs during World War 2.
  • Marmite has been available in Sri Lanka for more than four decades and became a part of the Unilever Sri Lanka portfolio in 2001.

Did you know?

  • Legend has it that the Marmite name may have been derived from the famous French stew 'petite marmite'. A 'marmite' – pronounced 'mar-meet' – is a French stockpot or cooking pot similar to the image shown on the jar, and shaped a bit like the jar itself.
  • Marmite is 100% vegetarian and an excellent source of B Vitamins. One serving of Marmite (4g) contains a range of B vitamins such as folic acid but has only 9 calories. Marmite contains no fat or added sugar and does not have preservatives or colorants.
