A savory spread popular with British expatriates has found itself at the center of an unsavory furor in Denmark after authorities pulled it from shop shelves.
Sales of Marmite, a dark and sticky substance usually eaten on toast, were halted by the Danish Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries because it violated regulations over vitamin-fortified produce.
With a distinctive yeasty flavor, Marmite isn't to everyone's taste, but for Brits living abroad the spread is as much a talismanic symbol of their homeland as a snack-time favorite, and its removal had stirred widespread indignation.

Watch Anderson Cooper and Isha Sesay sample the polarizing savory spread.
Thanks , I've just been looking for information about this subject for ages and yours is the greatest I have discovered so far. However, what about the bottom line? Are you positive concerning the supply?|What i do not realize is in reality how you are no longer really much more smartly-favored than you may be now. You're very intelligent.
No wonder British food is so terrible. They're raised eating this terrible stuff, it must kill their taste buds by the time they're 5.
The irony here is that Vegemite is also banned and the Princess Mary of Denmark is as Australian as Vegemite is.
Marmite is a highly savory and concentrated taste. The ONLY way you want to try it is on good toast. Pref slightly golden, still hot from the toaster, bread. Semolina ideally IMO
A swipe of softened butter so there is no dry surface (you want the bread to get soaked with the butter, not marmite,) then, clean knife/spreader. Spread a thin amount of marmite. Shouldn't be "solid" color, more semi translucent
Awesome... slightly salty with a yeast "bite", then the fatty butter and the crunch of the bread.
Doesn't sound appetizing at all, and can this really be considered vitamin fortified "produce"? And does it taste like beer?
Oh Riboflavin, what purpose do you serve? Aside from also being in Yoo-hoo? (Rhetorical question.)
I'm vitamin B2.
As for my purpose... that's deep. What is the purpose of anything?
Is there any purpose at all? Maybe just to exist in a cold, careless universe...
Now I'm depressed.
Come here little riboflavin...You can help boost my metabolism!
The stuff looks nasty (to me anyway). Had to look up the ingrediants...doesn't sound so appetizing either.
And we all wonder why the Brits have bad teeth. HA!
Dude, I'm surprised you are not zonked out sleeping.
While it sounds nasty, I'll have to try it to find out for sure. Sounds alot like Vegamite the Aussies eat:
malt extract (from barley)
