Premium Agar Powder – 50g


Agar Powder is derived from a red seaweed.  Our popular Agar is odourless and flavourless so can be used in a wide variety of recipes without impacting the flavour.

Agar offers a range of nutrients including iron, calcium and magnesium with low sodium so is suitable for those on a low sodium diet. It has some surprising health benefits (including weight loss and anti-inflamatory) and is suitable for those on a low GI diet.

Agar powder is a nutrient rich plant-based alternative to gelatin, a thickener for soups and dressings, to make fruit preserves, vegan ice cream, jellies, cheesecakes other desserts. It has a high fibre content (up to 70%) so can also have a mild laxative effect. It is said to soothe the digestive tract and is fat free, containing no calories. Check out how to use Agar as an substitute for gelatin, or egg replacement in raw and vegan recipes

Seaweeds are hygroscopic so require moisture protection. Unfortunately compostable materials are not yet sufficient to provide an adequate moisture barrier.

Premium Agar Powder

I have used Pacific Harvest Agar Powder in my gluten free cooking for several years wherever gelatine was required in the recipe, The results have always been satisfactory. It was very easy to order online and I received the goods very quickly.

As a first time user, I think the agar powder is great!

Agar was recommended to me for its health benefits and I’m finding the tasteless powder is very convenient to use. I was particularly impressed with how easy it was to order and how prompt the delivery was.
