Agar is a really great gelatin replacement. It works as a thickening agent for cold foods, but will melt again when exposed to heat. This makes it perfect for vegan cheeses, gel desserts similar to Jello, pudding, and gummy candies. It contains both calcium and iron, which helps if you are a vegan trying to incorporate these essential vitamins into your diet. Agar has become a staple in my pantry.

I finally got the recipe just right for making coconut yogurt that actually thickens using this agar powder. Coconut milk, agar powder, non dairy yogurt starter and tbsp of maple syrup is all you need (and a yogurt thermos/maker). Yummy!

This is the first time I've used agar agar so I have nothing to compare it to, but I used it to help set some homemade coconut yoghurt and it worked perfectly.

I use this to make vegan puddings and thick smoothies all the time. It's the best!

This seems like a small amount but it isn't because it goes a long, long way. I found that I only needed about 1/3 of what the recipe called for which was about 1/4 tsp. This is the same as agar agar and is a great replacement for a thickener to be used in jello's or Panna Cotta.

use this for thickening homemade vegan yogurts - it's so hard to find, glad to find it here!

I just opened it today to use in an almond mayo recipe I made. My mayo turned out fantastic so I can't say the Agar didn't help!

I have only used it once, so I have not been able to test it properly. I used it for making strawberry jam and the kids where very satisfied.
