What is Agar?

Agar is the common name for the natural jelly-like substance which is produced by certain species of red seaweeds (algae).  It is most commonly used as a vegan alternative to gelatin to set or stabilize foods.  It can give texture and substance replacing or reducing the need for added fat and sugar. 

We offer Agar in powder format. It is odour and colour free so it won't taint what you are preparing.
