Great Gelatin Replacement
Posted by rabbit on Sep 05, 2012
Agar is a really great gelatin replacement. It works as a thickening agent for cold foods, but will melt again when exposed to heat. This makes it perfect for vegan cheeses, gel desserts similar to Jello, pudding, and gummy candies. It contains both calcium and iron, which helps if you are a vegan trying to incorporate these essential vitamins into your diet. Agar has become a staple in my pantry.

Very good product. Have used this to thicken cheesecake topping & plan to use to make fruit juice jelly.

use this for thickening homemade vegan yogurts - it's so hard to find, glad to find it here!
Don't really know but it helped me make great vegan mayo.

I just opened it today to use in an almond mayo recipe I made. My mayo turned out fantastic so I can't say the Agar didn't help!
I love it!

Very good strong Agar. I use different proportions for different kinds of jelly. The recommended one is 2 tsp, I use 1 tsp and it is very strong. I took a little pack for my friend to try. A big one is better value for money.
the ultimate vegan jelly experience

never have desserts been so good until I found agar powder; not just healthy but economical
