Does anyone know if you can eat Marmite or Vegemite on a Paleo diet? It's a Yeast Extract

What are you putting it on? Or are you eating it with a spoon directly?

I use both AussieMite and Vege Spread as an alternative to Vegemite, both are made from non-GMO corn and are gluten-free.

Not often, though. There's a big, long thread on this site arguing the hazards of glutamic acid/MSG consumption. Worth a search.

80/20 rule comes to mind.

Cut 30 days, bring it back, if you still feel good - Enyoy!

I've wondered the same thing myself, as I'm a big fan of Marmite. I was more concerned that, as a by-product of beer brewing, it might not be gluten-free. However, Dr. Google seems to think that Marmite is indeed gluten free.

In any case, I don't see why yeast wouldn't be paleo. But if you're concerned about it, you might try substituting Bovril instead.
