Promite



Promite is a yeast spread similar to Vegemite and Marmite.

It is darker and sweeter than Vegemite, and a bit thinner than Vegemite and Marmite.

It has less of a harsher salt taste than other yeast spreads.

Ingredients include hydrolised vegetable protein extract, yeast extract, glucose, caramel colouring, wheat starch thickener, salt, lactose, vegetable gum, water and extracts of herbs and spices.

It is made in Hillsdale, New South Wales, Australia.

Australians and New Zealanders either like Vegemite or they like Promite -- it's extremely hard to find some who likes both equally.
