Moringa can also be used as a clarifier for honey.

Water treatment
The seeds of the moringa tree are used as a flocculant to purify water and reduce bacterial contamination.

Cheese preparation
The coagulating effect of the seed was also used in the production of cheese.

From the bark of the moringa tree can be obtained fibers, which can be used for the manufacture of ropes and mats. Likewise, from the bark is obtained tannins, which are used for tanning leather.

Alley Cropping / Soil erosion
Moringa plantings are popular for alley cropping. Other crops benefit from being adjacent to the moringa trees. Not only do they provide windbreaks and shade, but they counteract soil erosion. Moringa tree cultivation also serves to restore soils in arid and semi-arid areas.
