Extracted from a type of red algae (of the Gelidium and Gracilaria genera), AGAR is a gelling agent used in Japan since the 15th century and spread to the worldwide food industry around the turn of the 20th century. It is a source of fiber and can form gels into a variety of shapes and in very small proportions. It can be used to make hot gelatins.
Characteristics: Presented in a refined powder. Mix while cold and bring to a boil. Gelification is fast. Once gelled, it can withstand temperatures of up to 80 °C (hot gelatin). Allow it to rest for correct gelification. In acidic mediums, it loses part of its gelling capacity.
