Hi - we are newbies- first question - if my daughter eats vegemite her lips swell - any ideas what causes this?
I'm not a doctor, so I can't make a diagnosis, but a question comes to mind ... is she allergic to yeast, perhaps?
Well vegemite is a substance that has two main ingredients Yeast extracts and MSG. You must be aware that many are allergic to MSG in food. So it has to be one of two reasons probably.
I think yeast extract is MSG that occurs naturally. Flavour enhancers such as these can have that type of reaction
