Agar-Agar is a vegetable gelling agent extracted from red algae found on all coasts of the globe: Gracilaria verrucosa or other Gelidium-type red algae.
Algues Gastronomes BIO Agar-Agar is obtained by dissolving the algae followed by cryogenization. This transformation process preserves all the natural benefits of the algae (vitamins, trace elements, fibers...) and produces Agar-Agar of exceptional purity and quality.
ORGANIC Agar-Agar is then used to thicken or gel numerous culinary, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and other preparations.

Gustatory and gastronomic benefits :
Thanks to its gelling power, which is seven to eight times greater than that of animal gelatin, Agar-Agar adds texture and consistency to both sweet and savory preparations. Agar Agar is colorless, odorless and tasteless, making it a great asset to your cooking.
In powder form, Agar-Agar is very easy to use. It makes it easy to create creams, sauces, jams, pie toppings, ice creams, pastries, puddings, confectionery, melted cheeses, syrups, mousses, aspics, charlottes, pana cotta and more. It can even be used in terrines or pâté as a vegetable alternative to animal gelatin.

It's important to note that Agar-agar can only be eaten cold. Indeed, when hot, its gelling power is nil. However, this makes it easy to incorporate into all your preparations.

Nutritional benefits :
In addition to its use in cooking as a gelling agent, Agar-Agar has many nutritional benefits!
In fact, unlike animal gelatins, Agar-Agar has a very low caloric value, or even virtually zero. It is therefore particularly interesting for use in slimming diets.
Agar-agar also contains vitamins, minerals and fiber. The latter (called mucilage) have prebiotic properties. They support the intestinal flora, improving digestive comfort.
Last but not least, thanks to its high water-holding capacity, Agar-Agar can also be used as an appetite suppressant. In fact, Agar-Agar powder is recommended as part of the Dukan diet.
