__ AED 390.00 __

Extracted from a type of red algae (of the Gelidium and Gracilaria genera), AGAR is a gelling agent used in Japan since the 15th century. In 1859, it was introduced to Europe as a characteristically Chinese food, and at the start of the 20th century it began to be used in the food industry. It is a source of fiber and can form gels in very small proportions. It can be used to make hot gelatins. Characteristics: Presented in a refined powder. Mix while cold and bring to a boil. Gelification is fast. Once gelled, it can withstand temperatures of up to 80 °C (hot gelatin). Allow it to rest for correct gelification. In acidic mediums, it loses part of its gelling capacity.

Gelatins are one of the most characteristic preparations in classical cuisine, and they have undergone greater evolution in modern cooking. Until a few years ago, they were made mainly with gelatin sheets; starting in 1997, Agar, a product of algae, was introduced and is now commonly used.
