What Food Is Actually Made From Repurposed Brewer’s Yeast?
Vegemite, like its English predecessor Marmite, is a savory spread beloved in the countries of Australia, New Zealand, and in the How-To Geek kitchen as well. The spread itself is something of a bit of culinary and entrepreneurial genius as it is primarily composed of the waste product of beer brewing: the spent brewer’s yeast. If there’s anything more clever and entirely Australian than producing millions of gallons of beer and turning right around and producing millions of jars of delicious spread with the leftovers, we don’t know what.
Between its introduction in 1922 and today, the Vegemite recipe has remained almost completely unchanged. The Vegemite manufacturing facility in Port Melbourne produces more than 22 million jars a year, with the 1 billionth jar having rolled off the processing line in October 2008.
In addition to being a practical use of a waste product, it’s also one of the world’s most Vitamin B dense foods with an enormous amount of thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, and folate (B1, B2, B3 and B9) in each serving.
