Natures First, Agar agar powder is a gelatinous substance derived from red algae. Know in Japan as Kanten. This vegetarian thickening agent can be used as a substitute for any recipe that uses gelatine. Especially popular in dairy free and vegan recipes. Agar agar sets slightly more firmly than gelatine, this allows it to set at room temperature. It can be used as a 1:1 replacement for gelatine powder in a recipe, or in place of egg whites. Try making cucumber jelly or soy sauce gel to serve slightly warmed with savoury dishes, you can be really creative with the versatility of agar.
Nature First Agar Agar is available in a re-sealable bag and is packed in Australia from imported ingredients.
Nature First, Agar agar contains no sugar, fat or carbohydrates hence why it has long been used in diet or low calorie products for weight loss. Nature First, Agar agar is completely odourless and flavourless, making it a versatile and ideal product for the use in both sweet and savoury recipes. Agar sets more firmly than gelatine so recipes will be less jiggly and stay firmer even when not refrigerated for a few hours - a great relief for summer puddings and desserts. It will set at around 38-40°C.
