But needless to say Vegemite is good if your crook tea spoon in cup hot water Vegemite soup

I never heard of it at all!!....sheltered life I guess.....think if I saw a product on the shelf that said "Sanitarium" on the label, I would pass......not that there anything wrong with that....

I was curious myself so here’s the background on the Sanitarium brand.

The “Sanitarium” name for New Zealand’s Marmite comes from America, from John Harvey Kellogg (Kellogg's cereal) who invented corn flakes.

Kellogg founded the Battle Creek Sanitarium in Michigan, a health resort based on the health principles advocated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Supposedly, the Battle Creek Sanitarium became world renowned, and became the in place for the rich and famous to seek their lost health, to listen to health lectures and to learn and practice the principles of a healthy lifestyle.

Kellogg explored various treatments for his patients, including diet reform. He encouraged a low-fat, low-protein diet with an emphasis on whole grains, fiber-rich foods, and most importantly, nuts. Kellogg also recommended a daily intake of fresh air, exercise, and the importance of hygiene. Many of the theories of John Harvey Kellogg were later published in his book The Road to Wellness.

Charles W. Post (Post cereal) worked with Kellogg.

Founded in Melbourne in 1898, The Sanitarium Health & Wellbeing Company is the trading name of two sister food companies - Australian Health and Nutrition Association Ltd and New Zealand Health Association Ltd which are wholly owned by the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

In December 1900, Edward Halsey, a Seventh-day Adventist and baker trained at the Battle Creek Sanitarium, came to New Zealand to prepare healthy food for a small health home. He began making batches of Granola, New Zealand's first breakfast cereal, Caramel Cereals (a coffee substitute) and wholemeal bread in Christchurch. These products became known as Sanitarium Health Foods.

Today, Sanitarium New Zealand is owned and operated by New Zealanders while Sanitarium Australia is owned and operated by Australians. They do work together; producing over 150 products and employing 1500 people throughout New Zealand and Australia.

When I was a kid in primary school one of my good mates was a diabetic and he always ate Vegemite and Salada biscuits anyway for his birthday he got a 4 liter / 1 gallon tin of Vegemite

When we had smoko at school him and I would swap smoko so he got home made biscuits or fruit cake and I got Vegemite and Salada's he never had any problem and we did this for at least five years until the fun police school teacher busted us notes home to our parents the end of a good thing lol

The world will always have a supply of pop tarts and Pop Tarts.

But no dried salt cod flakes!

That's what I enjoy about breakfast in Europe, they have jugs of the liquid yogurt you can pour on your cereal (eg. muesli) like milk. I've never seen it in the states.
