Product Overview

Description

  • Various Red Algae
  • Kosher

Agar Agar is derived from two species of red algae in the Rhydophyceae family, Gelidium and Gracilaria. The powdered form is an excellent gelling agent and thickener in a variety of foods including jams, jellies, pudding, icings, soups and even ice-cream.

Agar is an excellent vegetarian alternative to gelatin. Used in microbiology as a growing media for yeast, mold and bacteria. Used to make casts in prosthetic dentistry. Agar is processed by hot-water extractions from the cleaned and bleached seaweed, followed by freezing to allow for the removal of soluble salts and finally, filtration. The resulting extract is then dried and milled to the desired particle size.

Suggested Use

Agar can be added to icings and glazes, low-calorie baked goods, jellied candies and sugared fruits, sherbets and ice-creams, homemade pet food and baby food, and in jams and marmalades.

The standard ratio for vegan jelled dessert is 1 cup fruit juice to 1 teaspoon agar powder. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until the agar has dissolved. Pour the mixture into a bowl and chill for 4 to 5 hours or until set.

Great Powder

Posted by 4812518514323064739 on Jun 21, 2013

I've tried it only for making sugar-free strawberry jam and the jam looks and tastes wonderful. This is a very good agar powder. I have only used 1 tbsp of powder for 4 kilo of jam liquid and the result is great. I would definitely repurchase.

Homemade coconut yogurt

Posted by Reviewer1000575 on Nov 14, 2012

We use the agar to make home made coconut yogurt. It is a bit pricey but a little bit goes a long way. And the yogurt is delicious!

Since I rarely eat animal products, it is necessary to find comparable foods in the plant kingdom. I use agar the same as others would use gelatin, but agar is even more useful since it does not require chilling to gel. I'm happy to have found a good source to purchase it in bulk.
