Even better, this is powdered agar agar, not flaked agar agar.
Poppyx
The cap design makes it easy to flip up to pour or use a spoon to measure out what you need.
D. Briscoe
I thought it would be better when it's cooled, but it still the same strange taste.

O.k., so it's not officially kosher--but this is how you make gelatin without cow's hooves, for those of you who get grossed out by Jell-O if you think about it too much.

Now foods is a company that sells gluten-free stuff, and this is no exception: if you have celiac this won't make you sick.

Even better, this is powdered agar agar, not flaked agar agar. That means this will last for months, if not years--although it's also easy to use too much. 1 tablespoon of the flakes = 1/2 tsp of the powder. The ratio most cooks call for is 1 cup liquid to 1 teaspoon flaked agar agar, which means 1/4 tsp of this powder to 1 cup liquid, with more added for more acidic things like orange juice.

However, agar agar doesn't gel as well as Jell-o, so don't expect to get the same results that you would for Jell-o--for that, you need Jell-o or kosher gelatin. (You can add more agar agar to add firmness; but then it starts to taste like what it is: seaweed.)

Worked so well that will cut back to 1/2 tsp when make the yogurt. Consistency much firmer with the addition of the agar.

I needed this for a no-bake cheese cake and I don't use gelatin, kind of creeps me out. But it worked well for what I needed, be sure to read directions.

I agree with the reviewer who said it won't give you 100% the firmness of jello but it does satisfy my cravings! Wonderful product!

Agar is basically gelatin for vegans, (or vegetarians.) Regular gelatin is usually animal-based, and is made from leftover body parts of animals that would otherwise be thrown away. Sound appetizing? Agar is a cruelty-free alternative, and is a great aid anytime a thickened creamy base is required, usually in baking. I use this for many cream pies as well as other desserts.

Awesome! This powder was bought as a media replacement for my Ant Works ant farm. I haven't tried it as a food supplement, but mixed with a little food dye, Pedialite & sugar; it worked perfectly as Ant Gel.

It makes a firm gel clear that holds at room temperature.

You'd be better off finding an Asian products store in your city and driving over there. They sell agar in powder and in little chips, and of course the whole agar seaweed at 1/5th of the price. This one is good for an emergency, but it is thievery.

Was used in baking gluten free vegan bread and it helped bind it together. Bread did not fall apart and did not give a funny taste.
