Folic Acid is also known as vitamin B-9; naturally occurring in many foods. Odd that it would cause something to be banned. But I doubt that this is going to cause any big protests in the USA.

cough! cough! [clears the throat]
Note :- "Old marmite can turn hard and lose its gooey spreadability,"
Vegemite doesn't do that, it stays good forever.

A very poor imitation of Marmite, IMHO..... Still, it is a COPY, and isn't imitation supposed to be the sincerest form of flattery?

If you mix marmite with butter it is a bit weaker and more easily spread. DH hates that but I prefer it.....Nigella Lawson recommends it in one of her books -for kids party sandwiches because it is so easy to spread like that.

As someone once said [I think it was Cliveb], if it's an acquired taste it isn't meant to be eaten .

I think I've discovered why Australians eat Vegemite...it's from brewing beer Right Attie?
