Agar Agar

Agar Agar (Latin Name - Gelidella Acerosa) is vegetarian & vegan substitute for gelatin made from a red algae. First discovered in the 17th century in Japan by Minora Tanzaemon, where it is known as ‘Kanten’. Agar Agar can be used as a gelatin substitute as well as a thickening agent in huge range of dishes, from caviar, to vegetarian sweets, ice cream, soup, jams, custards, jellies and more. Agar Agar has a higher melting point that traditional gelatine which can cause jellies to have a chewy texture, rather than melting in the mouth.
