It is an ingredient in the production of¿¿grass jelly, a food consumed in Chinese and Southeast Asian cuisines, as well as Chinese noodles and moon cake. It is used to tenderizetripe.

It is however important that the right quantities are used to prevent harm, and cooks should not use it without guidance.
