a classic

from a great, trusted company, I love agar as an alternative to gelatin. I use this product constantly to thicken sauces, make healthy gelatin desserts, and even make healthy gummy candies for my toddler. he loves them (check pinterest for any healthy -- ideally probiotic -- gummy and reduce or delete sugar and substitute agar for the gelatin). I love that agar has gut health benefits as well. one of nature's gifts to us, and thanks to Eden for bringing it to us!

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

Posted   by Norma_Sage
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

Posted   by Lula
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

Posted   by Olivia
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.

Gelatin Replacement

Posted   by S.
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.

It works!

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.
