Good product

Works well. You really have to boil the liquid after adding agar power. It won't set if you just pour it to hot water. It works and like it but a bit pricy for me since I use it to make treat for my dog.

Product works, but the bottle is half empty.

I know there is some settling but it really irritates me how empty they fill these plastic jars so there is twice as much plastic in landfill it is really horrible! I love agar though, and this product works. It isn't the FINEST grind but it still works.
