    Agar Agar--also known as kanten, Japanese gelatin, vegetable gelatin, Chinese isinglass, China glass, and dai choy goh--is a vegan gelling agent derived from seaweed. It has many uses but is used primarily in cooking. Agar agar is odorless, tasteless, and has only 3 calories per gram. This article will teach you how to prepare Agar and some of the different ways it can be used.

    Find Agar and decide which form works best for you. Agar usually comes in three forms: powder, flakes, or a bar. All three work equally well; the real difference is ease of preparation. Powdered Agar is usually the easiest to use, as it can be substituted for gelatin in a 1:1 ratio (1 teaspoon gelatin is equivalent to 1 teaspoon Agar powder).[1] The powder also dissolves easier than flakes or bars.If you're not sure which type to use, default to the powdered Agar.


    Method 1: Using Agar Agar in Cooking

    Make jelly candies by preparing Agar with fruit juices or sweetened milk. Agar is tasteless and will take on the taste of whatever it is mixed with, giving you endless flavor possibilities. These candies will stay firm at room temperature, so you can leave them out in a little dish or bowl without worrying about them melting and making a mess. Try mixing agar with teas, juices, broth, coffee--anything that sounds tasty to you!

    • Try boiling chocolate milk with agar powder, then adding a pinch of cinnamon. Pour it into little glasses to cool for a rich treat.

    • Remember certain acidic fruits may require extra steps, as their acidity or enzymes interfere with Agar's ability to gel.

    • Pour the mixture in silicone molds in cute shapes. Then your jelly candies can look like stars, kittens, hearts, shells, or any other shapes you can find.

    Make edible cocktails with agar. You can prepare little gelatinous shots for parties by boiling your mixers with Agar. After allowing the mixture to simmer and the Agar to dissolve and disperse, add the alcohol and stir. Pour the mixture into shot glasses or ice cube molds and allow them to set.

    Try mixing agar with the ingredients for a hot toddy and serve the cubes warm at holiday parties.

    Use Agar as a substitute for egg whites. If you have a recipe that calls for egg whites but you are vegan, allergic to eggs, or simply don't like them, Agar is a suitable replacement. To replace one egg, mix 1 tablespoon (14.8 ml) Agar powder in 1 tablespoon of water. Use an immersion blender or whisk to vigorously whip the mixture, then put it in the refrigerator to chill. Once the mixture is cool, take it out and whip it a second time. This mixture should perform the same function as egg whites in your baking and won't even alter the taste or color

    Make vegan puddings or custards with an Agar fluid gel. Gelatinous desserts usually call for a lot of eggs for thickening and texture. Instead of eggs, try making a basic gelled mixture of Agar and water, following the steps in method 1. Use a blender or an immersion blender to puree the gel until smooth. Mix this in with your other ingredients and you'll find you have a delicious, eggless dessert.

    • If you want to thicken the pudding or custard, add a little xanthan gum.
    • If you want to thin out the dessert, stir in a little water or another liquid.


    Method 2: Using Agar Agar for Health Purposes

    Use Agar as an appetite suppressant. Agar expands in your stomach, which tricks you into thinking you are full. It's know as the "kanten diet" in Japan and is used by many to try and prevent them from eating too much.People with type 2 Diabetes who supplemented their diet with Agar lost a significant amount of weight and improved their metabolism. It may also help stabilize blood sugar levels.

    • Make sure you check with your doctor before embarking on this diet.
    • Make snacks using Agar to stay full throughout the day, or mix it into your meals so you stop eating sooner than you normally would.
    3.Be aware that Agar can also stimulate your intestines and make you need to use the bathroom.
    4.Make sure you take Agar with at least 8 oz. of water, otherwise the Agar can swell and possibly block your esophagus or intestines.
    Use Agar pills to stimulate bowel movements and act as a laxative. Agar is 80% fiber, so it can be helpful if you need to relieve constipation. It should never, however, be used when you have a bowel obstruction (a kink or blockage in your intestines that prevents you from passing gas or having a bowel movement), as this can make the obstruction much worse.

    • If you have sudden, severe pain in your abdomen, swelling in your abdomen, and vomit or become nauseous, do not take Agar. Call your doctor instead, as you may have a bowel obstruction.
    • Make sure you take Agar with enough water, at least 8oz, for it to work as a laxative.
