Agar Agar, or “Gelidella Acerosa” to use its beautiful Latin name, is a fantastic vegetarian and vegan gelatine substitute. Pleasingly, its melting point is much higher than traditional gelatine, making it much more practical. For example, if you like melt-in-the-mouth jellies (instead of distinctly chewy ones) agar agar may be the perfect sweet-treat ingredient you’ve been looking for.

Agar agar was first discovered in 17th century Japan by Minora Tanzaemon, where it is known as ‘Kanten’. Perhaps somewhat surprisingly, this special product is made from unique red algae that is plentiful in this region.
