Is Vegemite kosher? What hechsher?

1 Answer 1


As of 2010, Australian Vegemite is now Kosher. However, bottles must be inspected before purchase for the "K" symbol above the barcode since Kosher Vegemite prior to 2010 was only produced in batches

Vegemite (Wikipedia)


Spreads (Kashrut Authority)

Auckland Hebrew Congregation

se-or שְׂאוֹר. The second of two categories of foods (see chometz, above) which are forbidden during Pesach. Se-or includes Marmite™ and Vegemite™.

Other glossaries of Kosher, Jewish, Passover and Food terms

  • It's kosher, but eating it might violate the principle of "lo teshaktzu".... (just kidding) :o)

  • -1: now includes outdated information. Please see "Vegemite" on Wikipedia for up-to-date information. Dear Gershon, I wonder if you could copy and paste in the more-current information included in the right-hand side of suggested edit 6068? Commented Aug 21, 2013 at 1:49
