Vitam-R is a savory yeast extract spread made in Hameln, Germany by the company Vitam Hefe-Produkt GmbH. It was first developed by Rückforth AG in Stettin (today's Szczecin, Poland) in 1925[1] [2], following the discovery by Justus von Liebig that yeast could be concentrated.[3]

It is sometimes described as having a smoother flavour than similar products like British Marmite[4], Australian Vegemite, Brazilian Cenovit and Swiss Cenovis. Unlike them, it is not an iconic part of its home country's cuisine, but it is also described as having a love-it-or-hate-it flavour.[5]

It is both vegan and vegetarian and is sold primarily in Reformhaus health-food stores.[1]

Beispielhaft für den wissensbezogenen Wandel der Vermarktung steht Vitam-R, ein Hefeextrakt, der Ende der 1920er Jahre als »Fleischextrakt des Vegetariers«39 vermarktet wurde.

But if Marmite stays off the shelves, Germany could have an answer. A company in Hameln has been making Vitam-R yeast spread since the 1920s. It may not have the same cachet as Marmite, but its smoother taste has a cult following among health food aficionados. But it, too, has become more expensive to import to Britain - even if, after Brexit, it will by default become the leading brand in the EU. External link in |website= (help)
