Created from algae, Agar agar is a natural vegetarian thickening agent that can replace animal gelatin in many recipes. It is odourless and colourless.
The agar-agar must be heated to 90ºC and used immediately. It can be reheated as many times as necessary. The gelling temperature is 60ºC. As this product achieves a soft texture, it is ideal for making false fruit pates without sugar, sheets of jelly... etc.
It can be used with:
- Water and all types of liquids with a water content above 80%.
- All types of fruit (however, the more acid the fruit, the less it gels)
- Bloom strength: 880
Application: Jelly, terrine, mousse and chantilly, panna cotta, cream, bavarois, entremet ...etc.
Recommended Dosage: 2 - 15g/kg depending on desired hardness degree
