Not necessarily so Phil. It might be to cut costs, though, as the main material is waste from breweries i wouldn't think there would be much they could cut from that. Nowadays the most likely reason for tweaking is "health". I can see , in the not too distant future, the healthy brigade will insist that Marmite is too salty and will insist the salt content be cut down. It will really taste horrible after that, and sales will slump so much that they will stop making it,saying , not that "no-one likes the new stuff", but that "there is no longer a demand for it".

I agree with Mike, although some things obviously need policing. The healthy brigade and the PC brigade will have to grow up and stand back, treat everyone as adults and realise that some of us actually have a brain. As long as we have access to information, let everyone do what they want. It's not much good cutting a few grams of salt out of something when i can buy a kilo bag of it from ASDA. SB

Funnily enough the only two things I add salt to are potatoes and boiled eggs, I don't put salt in anything else, I do tend to go overboard on pepper though.

Yes mate and me, I love pepper black and white. I do have to put salt and vinegar on chips though, it's the law. SB

SB, it is hidden salt that causes the concern. If you get your daily allowance from tinned foods that don't taste salty then you could easily eat too much.
Eating a lot of salt causes you not to notice the saltiness and so you eat more and more to get the taste. I have mostly low blood pressure. 100/55 average, from eating barely any salt at all.
I haven't put it in or on anything for about 10 years, until recently, when I decided to try and raise my pressure slightly.
Lemon or Lime juices are good alternatives.

Something I discovered recently regarding salt is that it is definitely related to muscle cramps, I think very low salt intake leads to cramps.
Every time I get muscle cramps I have a lick of salt (small pile) out of the palm of my hand and within seconds the cramp is gone and no after effects, bruising etc.
I can't recommend this to peops with serious Hypertension but it works for me, I have a small tub next to my bed.

Was that one of your signs John.
I know Gas Street. The Opposite lock Club, owned by Martin Hone. I did a poster for him once for Stephan Grappelli Also the club that was next door, "The Factory" also a Martin Hone club. It was literally an old factory which was cleaned up. Fitted with a bar, toilets and stage. The first band I saw there was Fleetwood Mac they had just released "Need your love so bad". I also saw a band there called The Gun, they had a hit single "Race with the devil".

Not a product but a memory never the less.

Arriving at the seaside.
On every visit, the first sight of the sea or the sand, perhaps the sound of the sea, the smell of sea air, the smell of the chip shops, the sound of the penny arcades, the feeling of being at the edge of ....something, as in everything you know is all behind you and in front is nothing but water and the unknown.

Chips in Newspaper. Home cooked chips in a newspaper cone that you would take out and eat in the street.
