It is also found in alcohol-based rinses and in the polishing of silver. The taste of sodium benzoate cannot be detected by around 25% of the population, but for those who have tasted the chemical, they tend to perceive it as sweet, salty or sometimes bitter. It is also used in pyrotechnics, as a fuel in the powder mixture that produces a whistle when it is compressed and ignited in a tube. In nature we can find it in blueberries, raisins, plums, cinnamon, ripe cloves and apples. It is used in medicine to examine the functioning of the liver.
