It has sales of nearly Â£30 million, with its major markets being Spain, India, Brazil, South Africa and Thailand. It’s frequently used as baking powder.
Indigestion is a condition that is frequently caused by eating too fast, especially by eating high-fat foods quickly.
GSK was formed from the merger of GlaxoWellcome (formed from the mergers of Burroughs Wellcome & Company and Glaxo Laboratories) and SmithKline Beecham (from Beecham, and SmithKline and French).
