What have they done to Vegemite


Some how it has changed, tastes the same but has the consistency of liquid nails, hard to spread and not like it used to be, not sure if I like it due to difficulty in spreading on fresh bread or toast for that matter

Agree Marrinup, I thought it was just me - it just about pulls the toast apart when attempting to smear it on.

Are we talking about real butter or the blended rubbish.

I generally take the real butter out of the fridge as soon as I get up, thus its softened enough when I get around to having breaky.

Or when you looking around a 2nd hand shop look for some old bone handled bread and butter knives, the blade is nice and thin and the hard butter rolls thinly easy to spread then.

Butter, made from cow's milk, then the cream from the milk with the bejus wipped out of it. Nearly creamy white.

Vegemite, made in Australia as an alternative to English Marmite, yeast ,barley, malt salt etc etc. Black as Black Dog Creek.
The left overs from Vegemite production are put into big tankers and sent to Corowa and mixed for pig feed, hence could be described as " makin bacin " as well.

Just open a new jar this morning, I weigh it because it looked like not filled, if it was 380g I will be amazed. They are treading a fine line to be out of cupboard.

I don't know, I get Mighty Mite.  It is softer than Vegemite, it has a jelly-like consistency.  Some of you might want to give it a try.

Very much a personal thing, if you've been bought up on the stuff no problem, if you come to it later in lifeno

Introducing Americans to Vegemite/Marmite is hilarious, the slather it on like peanut paste, then declare it disgustingbiggrin like most things they seem to think more is better, with Vegemite it definately ain't so.wink

The only time I tasted it, I gave the rest to my friend's dog. My brother likes it, though, so it must be an acquired taste.

Much reduced salt content compared to original has changed the texture

I don't see any change in the nutrition info since 2020.

web.archive.org/web/20201124210900/vegemite.com.au/our-range/

vegemite.com.au/our-range/

 

In 2012 there was more carbohydrate and sodium.

 You posted contradictory links.

Tony's preceding information appears correct, if sodium is decreased (usually in the form of salt).

There has been no change in the product range since 2020, so if you have only recently noticed a difference, then the nutrition information doesn't shed any light.

In 2012 there was only one product, so if that is the basis for your comparison, then there are several possible explanations for the differences. I was comparing the original product against Vegemite Bolognese. There are other alternatives such as "gluten free" which has even less carbohydrate. However, the recent formulation now has dietary fibre which wasn't present in 2012. I would think that would be a more likely reason for the change in consistency or spreadability.

If it is less salt then it might be a good thing.

Unfortunately after recent observations of processed foods which appear in increasing numbers in the Duopoly Supermarkets designed so that the new wave of yuppies dont have to cook ( mainly because they cant) I have about as much faith in these Food Scientists as I have in Climate Scientists.

I would lay good money on the table that my wife and our grandmothers had a better knowledge of food nutrition than these kids fresh out of school that are manipulating what may have started out as good food into something where, quite often, the package it comes in has more nutritional value than the product within.

Well today I received acompensation voucher from Vegemite, not abou the taste issue, still no answer, but the next jar was underweight, not by much, but that's not the point. It does however spread better and taste better.

Why in God's great name would they remove their well-known name off the jar and replace it with "PIZZA" or "PHO".

Some F-wit in marketing must have cost the Company untold dollars by confusing their entire over 50's consumers, that couldn't find Vegemite on the shelf so they had to buy Marmalade instead.

Just checked the pantry, ours says " Barty Parmy " . Wife said what is that stuff. I reply, You have to trust Ash, it will be ok.

Besides which, we have two jars of Marmalade.

 The pate based on livers have a higher iron level.  

Have you done a websearch? Information is available on the web.
