Rewarded Review

I have tried making zephyr (Russian marshmallow) at home so many times and failed each time. My zephyr turned out just perfect the first time I used this agar! I am in love. Can’t wait to try more recipes. You can use it as a vegan substitute for gelatin, I believe. Also, look up Birds Milk cake recipe with agar - delicious Russian cake!

I like to bake with Agar powder! My favourites are marshmallow and soufflés! The taste is amazing and the instructions how to use Agar are clear! I will repurchase.

Great substitut for gelatin for vegans and vegetarians. The consistency is a little more hard and brittle than gelatin. The package looks small at first, but it is actually enough for a long time, because a teaspoon is enough for a whole cup of liquid. I will definetly order again.

Very good agar-agar, I use it to make desserts instead of gelatine. It's very convenient because agar-agar doesn't melt at room temperature, unlike gelatine. And I like the fact that agar-agar is made from seaweed and not from cow's bones. The packaging is handy and the product lasts a long time.

Size: 2 Ounce (Pack of 1)Verified Purchase This stuff works great for making vegan jello! I wanted to give people a heads up about the recipe on the bottle though. It recommends using 2 tablespoons of agar agar to one pint of juice, which I tried, and the jello turned out crazy hard and unappealing. After finding some other recipes online, I've been making jello with just 1/2 teaspoon of agar agar to one pint of juice (so, 1/12 the amount of agar agar) and it's worked well. Maaaybe I would up it to 3/4 teaspoon. Anyway, I just regret that I unnecessarily used up so much of the agar agar following the recipe on the bottle! You don't need that much.

I like the grocery line from this brand and I decided to try this agar powder for desserts. Unfortunately, it is not mentioned what strength it has as some recipes require quite high, but whatever I tried it works good. And I am following the recipe instructions, not the one written on the bottle

I use this as a gelatins substitute in many recipes; on its own can have a specific taste but as an additive it’s fine

Used this as a gelatin maker for my keto gummies and it worked well. Quality was good and it allowed me to avoid the issues with beef based gelatin.

Agar powder is a great substitute for gelatin. I'm vegan so I use this to make dessert recipes that are like mousse or gelatin, and it works perfect every time. You can also use to make vegan cheese.
