Product of the Week: Mighty Spread

Do you like Vegemite? You live in Australia so the answer is most likely yes or at least someone in your family is a fan. But did you know Vegemite is NOT actually healthy? It's promoted as creating "Happy little Vegemites" but it certainly doesn't create Healthy ones!

Don't believe me? Take a look at the ingredients: Yeast Extract, Salt, Mineral Salt (508), Malt Extract (From Barley), Natural Colour (150d)(Contains Preservative 220), Vegetable Extract, Niacin, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Folate.

Can you see any REAL food in there? No.

But you do see 150d (Caramel 111) which is made from ammonia compounds and linked to gastrointestinal problems, hypersensitivity, liver problems and is recommended to be avoided in food for infants.

Then there's Preservative 220 (which can actually destroy thiamine (Vitamin B1) - something Vegemite is supposed to give you!), a bunch of synthetic vitamins (lab-derived) and the real kicker - MSG. Where's the MSG? In the Yeast Extract.

You can read more on the truth about Vegemite here.

Luckily, for the Vegemite lovers, there are healthy alternatives! Our favourite is Broken Head Company's Mighty Spread. Made locally in Byron Bay, this delicious spread is made up of:

Organic Black Sesame Seeds, Filtered Grander Energised Water, Organic Tamari, Organic Olive Oil, Non GMO Nutritional Flakes and Organic Apple Cider Vinegar.

100% Real Food!

Yes it is more expensive as the ingredients are real and organic but it's so worth it!
