Marmite lovers unite!

Beware – this recipe is not gluten-proof!!

I am a serious marmite lover.. addict..lover-addict. I am alover and an addict of marmite. But as you might have realised allready if you are an avid reader of my blog, is the fact that me and certain foods or certain foods and me does not mix well.. As per the official marmite website  – marmite is gluten-free, but I have my doubts. Marmite does contain huge amounts of brewers yeast though which is considered unsafe for celiacs. It is unclear just how much, if any, gluten remains in the product, but the Canadian Celiac Association recommends that we not consume it. Since it is the principal ingredient in Marmite, we would consider Marmite to be unsafe. Codex Alimentarius has a different standard, and under those rules it can be considered gluten-free if it has less that 200 ppm of gluten. According to wikipedia marmite manufactured in the UJ is 100% gluten-free. So.. who do we believe?
Well, me, I follow my gut, quite literally!
