What is Agar Agar?

Posted by Jennifer (The RD)

Agar agar is a non animal alternative to gelatin.  It is a combination of different sea vegetables and is used to stabilize/firm pies, puddings, jellies, etc.  Just like gelatin, it needs to be dissolved in hot liquid, but firms up and thickens at room temperature.  I bought a package at the Chinese supermarket and noticed that it was at least 50% cheaper than it was at Whole foods! 🙂
