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.Read more ›

The conclusion is clear: Super Agar is good, but I would prefer Now Foods. Choice is yours
Not sure if I got a bad batch, but I wouldn't buy from this seller again.
