PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Agar­agar is a jelly­like substance, obtained from algae.It was discovered in the late 1650s or

early 1660s by Mino Tarōzaemon in Japan, where it is called kanten.

Agar is derived from the polysaccharide agarose, which forms the supporting structure in the cell

walls of certain species of algae, and which is released on boiling. These algae are known as

agarophytes and belong to the Rhodophyta (red algae) phylum.Agar is actually the resulting

mixture of two components: the linear polysaccharide agarose, and a heterogeneous mixture of

smaller molecules called agaropectin.

Agar agar is odorless, tasteless, and has only 3 calories per gram.

How to use agar agar

Like gelatine you must soak agar in cold water but then unlike gelatine you must boil the agar

solution for 5 minutes to activate and completely dissolve the carbohydrates. Agar sets at around

38­40°C where as gelatine dissolves completely at 35°C. Agar jellies will become liquid again at

80°C – 90°C.

Ratios of Use:

Use the ratio of 100ml of neutral liquid to 0.9g of powdered agar agar
