A common practice in plumbing is to smear marmite on the inside of pipes. This makes the water taste very beefy in the first few days, then becomes less noticable. The benefit of this is that the active bacteria of the Marmite attack and decapitate harmful bacteria. The downside is an increase in yeast infections, particularly if water is poured in the eyes or onto an open cut.
