Agar Flakes



Agar, also known as kanten, is an ancient vegetable gelatin traditionally made by freezing and drying extracts of various red sea vegetables. Agar’s natural jelling ability, mild flavour, and total lack of calories have made it a favourite with health-conscious cooks around the world.

Even without refrigeration, Agar sets quickly as it cools, and seals in the natural flavour and sweetness of any fruits and vegetables used. Light and refreshingly cool, Agar dishes are especially popular in the summer. In any season, Agar can be used with vegetables and stock to make molded aspics; as a substitute for pectin in jams, jellies, and cranberry sauce; and in desserts such as puddings and pie fillings.
