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.

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.

This is a great substitute for vegans and those who don't like the smell or thought of gelatine!

1 tbsp per 1 pint of fruit juice seems a bit much if you want to make a vegan jelly, though it depends on what kind of fruit juice you're using. I used at least 1 1/2 tsp for (on separate occasions) melon soy milk and milk tea; the jelly does get firmer than expected. Look up online for reference on how much agar-agar to put to the jelly you're making.

This product is all that claims. The company name has been around for a very long time. The price was right, too.

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.
