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.

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.

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.

When I opened the mailer and retrieved the product I noticed that there was a hole in the package. A small amount, about 10% of the product had spilled into the mailer. Don't know how the package became damaged because there was no sign of damage to the mailer.

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.

I bought 4 brands of agar from Amazon and compared them side-by-side. To 1 cup of 50% apple juice (1/2 cup of juice + ½ cup of water) I added 1 teaspoon of agar. Then I heated it almost to boiling, stirred and let cool down to room temperature. “Hardness” is how hard the product is. The harder the better, meaning you have to use less amount of agar to achieve same results. “Taste” means taste. Ideally agar should have no taste at all, so it won’t change the flavor of your dish. Hardness and taste are rated on scale from 1 to 5, with 1 is the worst and 5 is the best. Here’re the results:
Brand Item # Hardness Taste
Telephone B00PACC7EU 1 2
Barry farm B00015UC48 3 3
Super Agar B00BTI827K 5 4
Now Foods B000MGSJ5A 4 5

The conclusion is clear: Super Agar is good, but I would prefer Now Foods. Choice is yours

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 product to thicken soups, gravies, puddings and it is great - no flour needed. You can add as little or much as desired. I would suggest some experimenting as too much and you have a really solid liquid you can cut with a knife. Better price on Amazon than in a grocery store, if you can find it.
