Agar Agar thickening agent in 1kg Packs.

This versatile thickening agent that comes in the form of a white-yellowish, fine powder, conveniently packaged in 1kg packs.

With its gelling properties comparable to Gelatine, it can be seamlessly substituted in any recipe that requires Gelatine as a thickening agent.

Whether you’re preparing sauces, jelly-based desserts, custards, or puddings, it will effortlessly enhance the texture and consistency of your culinary creations.

This is a versatile thickening agent that is commonly used in various culinary applications. This white-yellowish, fine powder is conveniently supplied in 1kg packs, ensuring that you have an ample supply for all your cooking needs.

How To Use

Stir the powder into cold or room temperature water, then bring to the boil.  Once it has all dissolved in the boiling water, pour into moulds and let it set.  Never mix the powder into hot or boiling water as it will become clumpy and will not dissolve.

What Are The Benefits?

One of the key advantages is its ability to act as a gelling agent. When prepared, it forms a gel-like substance that can be used as a substitute for Gelatine or cornstarch. This makes it an excellent choice for individuals who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet, as it provides a plant-based alternative to animal-derived thickeners.

Furthermore, it can be incorporated into a wide range of recipes that require a thickening agent. From savoury sauces to delectable jelly-based desserts, custards, and puddings, this versatile ingredient adds a smooth and creamy texture to your culinary creations.

In addition to its applications in the culinary world, Agar Agar also finds its place in the baking industry. It acts as a stabiliser for icings, glazes, and coatings, ensuring that they maintain their desired consistency. Moreover, it provides bulk to low-calorie breads, allowing you to enjoy healthier options without compromising on taste or texture.

Overall, Agar Agar is a must-have ingredient for any aspiring chef or baker looking to enhance the texture and quality of their dishes. Its versatility, ease of use, and plant-based nature make it a valuable addition to any kitchen pantry.
