    Great for vegetarian gelatin substitute

    Agar powder is on the expensive side but PureFormulas has as good a price as any for it. This lasted me through probably 10-12 recipes of making vegan cheese (which uses the agar to set up so you can slice it etc.). I have also used it in vegan lemon bars and pumpkin pie bars with great results. Remember that agar powder is about three times as strong as agar flakes so adjust your recipes accordingly.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Agar powder

    I use Agar Powder as a thickener for homemade yogurt. It is very smooth and works into the yogurt to make it have the creamy effect. I buy this on a when needed basis. It is good.

    Pros

      Smooth easy to blend in thickener. No bad taste.

    Cons

      nothing

    Agar Powder worked wonderfully for me. I used it to make a vegan hard "cheese". Agar Powder helped to set it and the texture came out great.
