Whilst the actual process is secret, the general method for making yeast extract on a commercial scale is to add salt to a suspension of yeast making the solution hypertonic, which leads to the cells shrivelling up; this triggers "autolysis", in which the yeast self-destructs. The dying yeast cells are then heated to complete their breakdown, after which the husks (yeast have thick cell walls which would detract from the smooth texture of the final product) are separated out. As with other yeast extracts, Marmite contains free glutamic acids, which are analogous to monosodium glutamate (MSG).

Any type of sausage !!!!!! eater beware
I have made millions of sausage, every sensible parent should go check out SODIUM NITRATE a preservative in sausage one of many engredients along with the other crap passed off as meat.
Never mind getting kids to steer clear of ciggarettes, it's the sausage they despeately need to avoid.
Have a glass of water with some sodium nitrated couple of times a week, see how you feel or how long it is before you develope a tumor.
