Agar Agar Powder is a natural additive is prepared from several species of red algae. It is a vegetable gelatin, one with high gelling properties.

The basic Agar Gel recipe is 2 teaspoons of powder to 2 cups of liquid.
- Soak the agar in the liquid for about 10-15 min.
- Bring to boil and simmer stirring until the agar completely dissolves (about 5 minutes).

In Japan, where Agar Agar is known as Kanten, the dietary fiber is added to everything from soups to noodles to desserts, because of its ability to expand in the stomach---causing a feeling of fullness. Store in a cool, dry place for up to 1 year. We do not recommend refrigeration or freezing. Contains 4 oz. of Agar Agar powder Also referred to as Red Algea (sea weed) or Kanten Dietary fiber.

- Add to panna cotta to make a restaurant quality dish.

- Make vegan cheese.

- Add to fruit syrups to make fruit "caviar" to garnish sweet treats.

- 2 teaspoons of agar will set about 2 1/4 cups of liquid ingredients to a soft cheese like consistency.

For best results:

Mix agar-agar with 5 parts similar size powder (salt, sugar, etc) or oil (glycol,flycerin, alcohol etc.) or high brix liquid (not high fructose corn syrup)

Agar-agar dissolves in water above 85C/185F degrees.

Works great for making my signature cheeses. To see some of my recipes using this product, go to ChefmarkAnthony.com.I also recommend this powder rather than the flakes that run 5 times the price.

Advantages: Works great for making my signature cheeses

It took very little searching to learn how to use it (I tend to overload the fruit). Instructions vary on how long to boil the agar in the liquid -- I use the shorter times with good results. I've had fun experimenting with different savory or sweet recipes, and trying different sweeteners. This product has terrific setting-up action! It does not need to be chilled to set up.Since Agar powder is used by the teaspoon, (compared to the tablespoon of Agar flakes), 1 pound will last me a good long time, and is worth the price! I'm so glad I got it. Much healthier than gelatin, and easier to use. My family loves it, too.

Advantages: Agar agar powder is sooo easy to use!
