Reviews For Hand Harvested Agar Agar Flakes
Based on 6 Reviews
This product makes some of the best jello around! You can add any flavor juice and fruit! Makes a healthy desert. I add a little vanilla yogurt to the top instead of whip cream. Try it, you'll like it!
Perfect for canning and gelatin
I use this agar agar all the time. Occasionally I make jello and replace the gelatin with this, but more often than not I'm canning. I can all fall long and this is the best quality and cheapest agar agar I could find.
Great for home made cheese
I'm a vegan, so this is great when I'm making my own special cheese. It dissolves easily into a gel form and then hardens when I'm done cooking, making a wonderful cheese. I also like it as a substitute for corn starch

Great for Canning
I grow my own strawberries for canning, and while a lot of people are okay with using chemical preservatives or sugar for preservation, I really want to avoid that. That's exactly where this agar agar comes in. I add it to my preserved jellies in order to get the right consistency and help the shelf-life of it. It doesn't have much of a taste to it, so I end up with a delicious jelly where the taste of the fruit shines through wonderfully. Great for canning.

This is a great gelatin replacement/substitute. I use it in refrigerated pies and other recipes and it is the perfect vegan option. It is a healthy option and doesn't add any noticeable flavor that is any different than "traditional" gelatin. It is easy to use and I will definitely be getting more in the near future.

I was looking for an alternative to corn starch and this works great! My daugther-in-law is vegan and uses this to make vegan cheeses, as well! I wish it came in a little bit larger package but otherwise no complaints.
