I got my agar agar yesterday, and I feel like I've been scammed. The only reason I chose to buy from Barry Farm was that it was the cheapest option. But that wasn't the case.

When I first held the package (which is smaller than what is pictured here), I thought it was oddly light for 4 oz. So I weighed it on my military grade digital scale and bingo, it's 3.2 oz. Without the packaging that would mean 3 oz. I thought it might be my scale so I weighed my mineral makeup that came on the same day, 1.3 pounds each for a 1 pound bag. So Barry Farm only shipped me 3 oz of product when I payed for 4 oz, which doesn't seem like a lot but when you do the calculations it's quite a dent.

Let me compare this to the other agar option on Amazon by NOW Foods.

Barry Farm (3 oz) $7.90 + $7.13 (Shipping) = $15.03 (Comes in a plastic Ziploc bag)

NOW Foods (2 oz) $4.20 + $5.38 (Shipping) = $9.58/2 = $4.79/oz * 3 = $14.37 for 3 oz (Comes in a plastic bottle)

NOW Foods (32 oz) $40.79 + $7.55) = $48.34/32 = $1.51/oz *3 = $4.53

So including shipping,

Barry Farm $15.03/3 oz
NOW Foods $14.37/3 oz
NOW Foods $ 4.53/3 oz

With a bottle instead of a plastic bag, my future purchases would be from NOW Foods. I'm so tempted to get the 2 Pound bottle since an ounce is only $1.51 that way, but agar's gelling quality is so good that it gets used very slowly.

Now about the agar. I cooked it last night (1 Cup apple juice to 1/2 teaspoon powder), and left it in the fridge. This morning I woke up to see it gelled quite nicely. It doesn't have the doinky texture of gelatin jello and it's much harder to the touch.

Any jelly I made with this agar agar was unpalatable, because it had an awful after-taste. The agar-agar smelled like medicine even while being dossolved in liquid.

Not sure if I got a bad batch, but I wouldn't buy from this seller again.

First of all, let me say I have no complaints about this product whatsoever. I bought it to use in a pecan pie recipe. My mistake (and I'm only mentioning this, because this was my first time using agar, and I learned a lot) was in assuming that agar powder and agar flakes could be used interchangeably in the recipe (which called for flakes). My pecan pie slices came out like bricks - haha! So, I plan to make the recipe again, but probably with only half the amount in powder, in the hopes that my second attempt will be much more successful than the first! The seller and product were both great! Thank you.

Their shipping is expensive and they havent even shipped it yet. Had I known that it would take more than 16 days (and counting) for this company just to get the product out the door, I would have purchased from one of the many other sellers on amazon.

I use this all the time to make nut cheese, works great, I've also used for fruit gelatin, worked great for that, we didn't detect any bitter flavor and I am usually very good at tasting slight tastes. I weighed the bag, and there were 4 oz there, so don't know if the person that got a small bag just ended up with a mistake. I've ordered this multiple times with no problems.

This is a key ingredient (in tiny amounts) in my homemade soy yogurt. IT gives soy milk the capacity to gel.

I had a recipe for a dessert topping using agar agar. This worked well and the topping was yummy. So I am very pleased with this, and have lots more for future recipes.
