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

    I recently learned about Agar Agar. I was looking for an alternative to using gelatin (which is processed from animal bones) and read about this. The price was fair and the product works perfectly. I made a restaurant quality panna cotta that was absolutely delicious. The Agar Agar leaves no detectable taste and it is a great thickening agent for vegan or vegetarian recipes!

    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.

    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.
