Equagold’s Agar Agar Powder is a seaweed product from Germany and is of extremely high quality. Agar agar is a red algae, used as a suitable vegetarian equivalent to gelatine. It is a popular product for vegetarian and vegan cuisine.
Did you know? It’s a key molecular ingredient for setting pearls, caviar and noodles. It has a higher melting point which gives jellies a chewy texture, rather than dissolving in the mouth. It is used commercially to thicken sauces and stabilise sauces like mayonnaise.
Instructions & Care:
Agar agar powder should be carefully weighed out in precise quantities, as it sets faster than gelatine.
