Description
 
The Marmite Food Extract Company was formed in Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, England, in 1902, with Marmite as its main product, and Burton as the site of the first factory. The by-product yeast needed for the paste came from the biggest brewer at the time, Bass Brewery.

The British version of the product is a sticky, dark brown paste with a distinctive, powerful flavour, which is extremely salty and savoury with umami qualities, somewhat comparable to soy sauce. This distinctive taste is reflected in the British company's marketing slogan: "Love it or hate it."

24 February 2010 - Vitamin B3, or niacin, is widely used to fortify breakfast cereal and is especially abundant in Marmite yeast extract. US researchers have discovered that if rats are given niacin after a stroke has been induced, they sprout new nerve cells and blood vessels.
