The Dangers of Marmite

I am gemused to see that Denmark has banned Marmite, and shops are now busily removing the "love it or hate it" product from their shelves.

For why?

It seems that Marmite simply has too many additives and vitamins, these added vitamins and minerals allegedly break food safety laws.

All very well, maybe. However, are we really sure that the pack of Danish that we fry for breakfast is 100% free from additives and that the pigs who graciously allowed themselves to be sliced and packed were not fed food with additives?

Rumour has it that the British expats in Denmark may mount a campaign of civil disobedience. How ironic that the banning of Marmite causes such actions by Brits when abroad, yet Nanny can get away with murder here without raising so much as a whimper from her enslaved sheeple.

As to whether Denmark can enforce this ban remains to be seen, as it may well breach European law.

However, in the meantime, if there are any Marmite addicts in Denmark who need a "fix" feel free to drop me a line; I am sure we can come to an arrangement for me to get you some:)

  1. Ken,

    If myself or Mrs Tonk travel to Denmark, we will not be affected as neither she nor I can stand the stuff....Isn't it actually a waste product of the brewing industry?

    No....Marmite is a yeast extract, not waste yeast. Brewery waste ends up on the fields as fertiliser.

    The vitamins listed on the Marmite label aren't actually additives - they occur naturally. If Danish nanny is so worried over all thse vitamins then perhaps Marmite should omit them from the labels on jars for the Danish market. They aren't additives so there's no legal requirement to list them.

    Oh,oh - Marmite contains salt so Nanny's alarm bells would soon start ringing!

    Thanks for the heads up, I wasn't sure.....As I said, I can't stand the stuff.....This "extract" ho ho is from an on-line encyclopedia....

    ""Marmite ( /ˈmɑrmaɪt/ mar-myt) is the name given to two similar food spreads: the original British version, first produced in the United Kingdom and later South Africa, and a version produced in New Zealand. Marmite is made from yeast extract, a by-product of beer brewing.""
