Product Overview

This salty spread may be famous for dividing opinions, but there is no arguing with the fact that Natural Yeast Extract brings a lot of joy to a vegan diet.

Meridian Foods’ Yeast Extract is the secret ingredient to add umami depth to all kinds of dishes. It can be stirred directly into stews, risotto, and pasta, or used to make a rich stock.

For a tasty salty snack spread Meridian Foods’ Natural Yeast Extract on crackers or on your favourite bread with butter. It’s a great accompaniment to vegan cheese in a sandwich, a toasty, or baked into vegan cheese twists.

It can even be stirred into hot water to make a savoury hot drink if that floats your boat!

As if this wasn't enough, this mighty spread is also a great source of vitamin B12 and iron, both of which can be deficient in vegan diets.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is yeast extract made?

Yeast extract was invented in the 19th century from what is leftover at the end of the beer brewing process. This leftover mixture is put into conditions that allow the enzymes in the yeast to break down the molecules in the mixture. The more they do so the more umami the flavour becomes.

We have the German scientist Justus von Liebig to thank for the liquid joy that is yeast extract, and its various incarnations including Marmite and vegemite.
