    What is agar agar powder?

    Agar agar powder is also known as Kanten, a Japanese gelatin, is derived from seaweed (red algae).

    How is this powder processed?

    Our agar (like all sea vegetables) is grown in the ocean. It is then dried and ground into a fine powder. While it is true that compared to land plants, we have little control over the growing conditions of marine plants, we do have choices on how it is transported, dried, processed, stored, and packaged. Our organic Agar is manufactured according to the current organic program and is tested for contaminants and pesticides (both not allowed in organic products).

    How to use Agar Agar powder?

    This powder can be substituted for gelatin in a 1:1 ratio. The gel strength ranges from 500-725 gcm. In most recipes it requires being added to a liquid and being brought to a boil for about 2 minutes before setting to cool.
