Interesting Food - Marmite

Image
Marmite is quintessentially British, but did you know it wasn't invented by a Brit? It was invented by a German.

(Justus von Liebig was looking for an inexpensive nutrition source for the poor of Europe, and his discovery that yeast could be concentrated and eaten, led to the manufacture of Marmite.

I'm not sure if that should be celebrated, or not.)
