    Lye-water is an essential ingredient in the crust of the traditional baked Chinese moon cakes.
    Most yellow coloured Chinese noodles are made with lye-water but are commonly mistaken for containing egg.
    Some methods of preparing olives involve subjecting them to a lye-based brine.[24]
    The Filipino dessert (kakanin) called kutsinta uses a bit of lye water to help give the rice flour batter a jelly like consistency. A similar process is also used in the kakanin known as pitsi-pitsi or pichi-pichi except that the mixture uses grated cassava instead of rice flour.
