Perhaps then, it would be safe for me to say, without re-doing the scan that there is still no reference to this material.

In the AR children's books? There certainly isn't (unless it's in 'Coots in the North' which I haven't read).

As for the strangeness of somebody discovering it, it seems to have been a matter of scientific discovery of the nature of yeast and its nutritive properties, and Liebig turning that to commercial advantage in the 19th century. The remarkable thing is less how somebody came to discover it, but rather how many similar products have sprung from it- Liebig, Marmite, Cenovis, Vegemite...

There's a short historical summary under 'about us' on the Marmite web site.
