Product Information

Hoosier Hill Farm Agar Agar Powder is a natural vegan, plant-based thickener and gelling agent made from red algae. Also known as kanten, this versatile ingredient is often used in place of gelatin powder in Japan. Its high gelling properties produce a thick, firm texture, and it sets quickly at room temperature. This makes it ideal for making vegan gelatin. It also can be substituted for cornstarch as a thickener, so it’s a great addition to a variety of dishes, from soups and sauces to noodles to desserts. In addition, agar agar provides healthy dietary fiber.

How to Use Agar Agar Powder: Agar agar is more potent than gelatin and sets to a firmer, gummier texture. One teaspoon of agar agar provides the same thickening power as 2-3 teaspoons of gelatin, so keep this in mind if you’re making a substitution to a recipe that calls for regular gelatin. If you’re making a molded recipe like a gelatin or panna cotta, be sure to grease the mold before adding your agar agar mixture. Try adding it to fruit syrups for homemade gummy candy, or use it to make your own vegan cheese.

Storage: Store in a cool, dry place. We do not recommend refrigerating or freezing agar agar powder.
