Agar Agar Food Grade (China Grass) - Agar Agar is used as 100%
vegetarian substitute for Gelatin (manufactured from animal bones and
skin) in the food industry. The usage is fast gaining ground due to the
worldwide shift for products of vegetable origin. Agar Agar has been
used for many centuries as high performance gelling agent.
Its ability to produce clear colourless, odourless, and natural gels
without the support of other colloids has long been exploited by the
food industry as a stabilizing and gelling agent. Agar Agar gels at 34°C
to 42°C and melts at 80°C to 98°C. This unmatched natural hysteresis
offers a definite advantage particularly with regard to the shelf life
of food preparations.
Agar is used as a thickening agent in low calorie marmalades, jams,
processed meat products, bakery fillings, icings, prepared soups,
ice-creams, etc. and as a gelation agent in doughnuts, low calorie
marmalades, jams, jelly candy, fruit yogurts, acidified creams, cheese,
puddings, custards, flans, fruit desserts, whipped fruit pulp, etc. Agar
can also be used in spreadable products like honey, butter, peanut
butter, jam products like honey butter, peanut butter, jam products.
