Vegimite, marmite=yeast extract=glutamate=MSG!

Postby Belgian Pie » 19 Jun 2012, 18:56

Here it goes ... many of you complain about the use of MSG in food but I think it escaped our English, NZ and Australian friends that the 'mites' are actually yeast extracts that are also used in organic foods to replace MSG.
Be aware that yeast extract is a hidden source of MSG (glutamates) in your food and do not have to be on the ingredient list.
Those of you that complain about MSG but eat happily 'mites' on your breakfast sandwich ... :roflmao: but hey, you get your 'umami' ...

Be carefull with what you say here as it seems we are as guilty as sin.
Remember that song called "Down Under" from Men at work?

Quote:
Buying bread from a man in Brussels
He was six-foot-four and full of muscles
I said, "Do you speak-a my language?"
He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich


I never ever heard of vegemite sandwiches back in the ol' country
I’m a dog shaped ashtray
I’m a shrugging moustache wearing a speedo tuxedo
I’m a movie with no plot, written in the back seat of a piss powered taxi
I’m an imperial armpit, sweating Chianti
I’m a toilet with no seat, flushing tradition down
I'm socialist lingerie
I'm diplomatic techno
I'm gay pastry and racist cappuccino
I’m an army on holiday in a guillotine museum
I’m a painting made of hair, on a nudist beach, eating McDonald's
I’m a novel far too long
I’m a sentimental song
I’m a yellow tooth waltzing with wrap around shades on

Who am I?
I am Europe

Vegemite makes you smarter. It's scientifically proven.

Glutamate does not equal MSG. MSG is a crystallized salt of glutamic acid.

We were a very poor family when I was growing. I had Marmite on toast with weak tea for breakfast before going to school for 4 days of the week. Once a week my Mum would make sardines or scrambled eggs (if we could afford it).

I remember it fondly. I really couldn't give a flying fuck about how much MSG it contains. :2cents:
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

You were lucky. We were each given a piece of toast Monday. Had to lick vegemite off it Monday to Thursday, then eat the toast Friday. And tea: 1 bag between 8 of us for a month!

MSG? Kids today don't know how lucky they are.
