I am not sure about you, but for me i've known Marmite since i was small when my mother always put it inside my congee or as i would call it 'moi'. Marmite is a yeast extract, paste-like food spread. It has a unique strong taste, so you only need a few to add taste to your cooking.

Since my baby Dania can eat solid food, i always cook congee for her. Usually i just throw in carrot, spinach, pumpkin or blended anchovies to it. Then i remember that i use to love it so much whenever my mother adds marmite into my congee. So i bought 1 recently, for my baby to try it. It was quite expensive, the smallest bottle cost me almost RM10. Excitedly putting too much of it and spoil the whole congee, ended up too salty. Hahahaha..

Later on, I did a google about Marmite coz i was afraid if it is bad for baby. I was surprised to know that Marmite is a popular in UK. It was originate there and the Brits love to eat it with their toast and crackers. It was claimed to be addictive as well, due to its unique taste. In fact, Marmite also is high in folic acid and contains alot of essential vitamins. To know more, check here.
