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.
