Calcium hydroxide is also known as edible lime, hydrated lime or slaked lime. Although called edible, it is not ever eaten by itself. It is used with certain plants and herbs, such as tobacco, coca and betel nut (Areca catechu) to increase the absorption of the alkaloids into the bloodstream via mucous membranes. Edible lime was also traditionally used in processing corn as a way to increase the absorption of niacin. Additionally, edible lime is used in pickling and processing various other foods and beverages. Due to its alkaline properties, it is also used to balance out acidic soil.
