There are plenty of other products out there with stupid names - I mean imagine asking in a chemist for Anusolve or Arselone - or even worse Vagisolv. Can't do their sales any good!!!

Why Cod, we think SEAL IT BANG is a wonderful name! Is there any reason we shouldn't? I especially like the Bang part as I have banged many things in my life, with a hammer and other more specialized tools of course...

It is also used to acidify foods and beverages such as various colas, but not without controversy as to its health effects. It provides a tangy taste, and being a mass-produced chemical, is available cheaply and in large quantities. The low cost and bulk availability is unlike more expensive natural seasonings that give comparable flavors, such as ginger for tangyness, or citric acid for sourness, obtainable from lemons and limes. (However most citric acid in the food industry is not extracted from citrus fruit, but fermented by Aspergillus niger mold from scrap molasses, waste starch hydrolysates and phosphoric acid.)

AKA Coca Cola
