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.

Purchased for jello shots as I am a vegetarian. They worked great, but I ended up using about 3 tsp total. Think I need to set up a bio hacker space in my apartment and start running electrophoresis gels if I want to finish off the rest of this thing.

Advantages: This is a lot of agar.

Got my order quickly and immediately put the agar agar to work. I'm excited to finally have the ingredients to make fruit "caviar"....those intensely fruity little pearls that you garnish your favorite ice cresm, gelato or other frozen treat.

I used this to make vegan cheese and it worked great! I was very happy with how my recipe turned out, and being able to buy a relatively rare and expensive ingredient in bulk was worthwhile.

Advantages: Whoa!
