Eden Agar Agar Flakes (Kanten) is a vegetable gelatin made of a variety of sea vegetables with strong thickening properties. The seaweeds are boiled to a gel, pressed, dried and crushed into flakes.
Perfect for desserts, pie fillings, baked good fillings, puddings, parfaits, fruit or vegetable aspic, and more. The flakes dissolve in hot liquids, and thicken as it cools.
To Prepare: Add 4 tablespoons of flakes to 4 cups fruit juice or stock, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes or until dissolved. Add fruits or vegetables and cool until firm.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I'm very pleased with this product. I used it to make a strawberry-almond milk pie filling, and this agar agar gave it a very good consistency, robust, but soft, and a lot better than gelatin. Definitely I'll buy more!
I am not vegan. However, due to concern over BSE, I have eliminated beef products from my diet for 10 years. This included gelatin-based goods. I discovered this recently looking through a vegan recipe book. This is such a great substitute for gelatin (puddings, jello-like desserts, marshmallows etc), I can't believe it is not more commonly used in the US. I prefer it over fish gelatin. It is also made in Japan, not China.
