Living in Thailand has many problems. Dodgy Marmite is the yeast of your worries.

Have it checked out..........it may be a vaccine for Covid.............

No issues here in northern Nan province. Keep my opened jar in the refrigerator. Use a clean knife only to extract the vegemite. Yes...two knifes to prepare vegemite toast. One does the butter, the ot

Down to my last large jar of it, but my son is assembling half a dozen squeeze tubes in a CARE package for me.

I'm a damn sight happier Vegemite here than I would be stuck in Oz.

I'm just curious as to what the organism is, can't be too many life forms that can live in it. We can live on it, but we are made of sterner stuff.

My Thai wife loves the stuff on toast so do my dogs

Beware. Putting Vegemite on your anus could result in a yeast infection.

I remember a guy I used to work with who took a large jar into Libya. Security at the airport thought it was plastic explosive. He had to eat half the jar to convince them it was not.

He was a suicide bomber?

One of the Andy McNab books had a bit about this. The main character was smearing himself in Marmite to give himself an "Arab" look to make himself stand out less (aside from the smell), and security thought the Marmite was explosive until he started eating it.

In the UK never, in Thailand always.

Never had a mould problem with Marmite or Vegemite, even though they sometimes spend months in the cupboard. Never put in the fridge because it makes them almost impossible to spread and don't have time to let them warm up before breakfast.

Double dipping the knife? I've never had marmite or vegemite go mouldy except when contaminated because people have used unclean knives or spoons.

Possible, I use a bit of margarine before the Vegemite. However, I do ensure the Vegemite surface has no residual margarine on it.

The hypothesis fails because it only occurs in the village. The knives there are just as clean as the ones in the condo.

You could always microwave it, which has me wondering if anyone has tried it, and what the result was.

Vegemite - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org › wiki › Vegemite

Vegemite is a thick, dark brown Australian food spread made from leftover brewers' yeast ... The U.S. Food and Drug Administration later stated that there were no plans to subject Vegemite to an import ban, or withdraw it from supermarket shelves. ... high yeast content, despite the fact that Vegemite contains no live yeast.

Wrong. The yeast is live.

I love people who will not accept evidence.

Hate the stuff ... Marmite rules!
