I like marmite but Unilever can stick it
Reduced salt Marmite?
You'll either love it or hate it.
The whole idea of Marmite is that you LOVE it or you hate it.

Changing it into something it isn't and charging more for it is no joke, it's and I'm and
Another marketing gimmick there's only 4.7g salt difference per 100g between this and the regular Don't know about anyone else but I tend not plough through half a jar a day.
This "reduced" salt version is actually 6.1% salt. That's a staggeringly high amount. To compare, Walkers ready salted crisps are 1.4% salt.

Whilst I agree it’s unlikely you’d be getting a substantial proportion of your daily salt allowance from marmite, 4.7g difference is a reduction of 44% which is significant (10.8g/100g on our current jar, 6.1g on this - why they claim a 25% reduction I don’t know!)
i put salt on normal marmite on toast

But you don’t eat a whole ‘packet’ of marmite (34.5g) each sitting do you!!?? The quoted serving is 8g (2 slices of toast) so under a 1/4 of a packet of crisps. Conveniently therefore, in 8g of the reduced salt marmite, theres exactly the same amount of salt as in your 1.4% 34.5g packet of crisps! (Obviously there may be additional salt in the bread but that’s beside the point)
Marmite love it ? hate it ?
No

So now it is just brown death rather than salty brown death.
If it has less salt than the regular version shouldn't it be cheaper

True. I was just surprised that something advertised as "reduced" should still contain such a high percentage (if not absolute amount) of salt.

Sainsbury's have done a reduced salt Marmite alternative for years - it's tasty and and it's cheaper than this! (£2 for 225g)
now all we need is a gluten free version
Sly move. It means that you'll end up using more of it to get the same amount of flavour on your toast, unless, as others have suggested, you sprinkle some salt on...
why is it bleu?
I wish they'd work on making it more spreadable
Not sure why people buy Marmite when, for example, Tesco/Morrison's Yeast Extract is a lot cheaper and tastes virtually the same!
I like marmite because of the salty contents, any reason why I should go for this one?
