Why use Bio Agar?
Bio Agar is used as a gelling agent for the production of jellies, jams, fruit cakes, candies. You can also use it to thicken. It has the ability to retain water and form a stable gel structure, so it is much stronger than gelatin and holds its shape perfectly when sliced. It is made from red seaweed.
It is very easy to work with. Just bring it to the boil to gel it. You can leave it to gel in any liquid. It does not need a refrigerator to solidify, as it occurs in a short time at 35-40 °C. The time required for solidification is much shorter than for gelatine. It allows the formation of high layers of jelly.
It has no taste, no odour and is calorie-free.
Bio Agar is preferred over traditional agar powder because of its organic origin, which means it has not been produced using chemically treated raw materials or pesticides. Great for those who prefer natural and BIO ingredients.
An ideal choice for vegans and vegetarians.
