Agar Agar Strips- Red 20g...Extended product information
This is a plant-based alternative to gelatin and it's called agar-agar which is a type of seaweed that has extremely powerful thickening and gelling properties. It can be used to substitute for gelatin, thickening soups, and makes jam & jellies, ice-cream and other desserts that need to set. There are differences between agar-agar and gelatin. Agar sets more firmly than gelatin so recipes will be less jingly and less creamy. It stays firm even in high temperatures so that even on hot days, you don't have to worry about your desserts collapsing during the summer. Agar has no calories, no sugar, no carbs and no fat. It is free from soy, corn, gluten yeast, wheat, starch, milk, egg and preservatives. It is a good source of fibre, calcium and iron. Agar is said to help digestion and help to detoxify the body by acting as a mild laxative. It absorbs bile and is believed to help the body dissolve more cholesterol. It passes through the digestive system quickly and inhibits the body from storing excess fat.
