Agar agar can be used in any dairy-free, vegan recipe that calls for gelatine as a thickening agent, including sauces, jelly-based desserts, custards and puddings.
Agar agar is a gelatinous substance derived from red algae that has been popular across Asia for centuries as an ingredient used in desserts and other cooking. It can also be used as a laxative, a vegetarian gelatine substitute, or to thicken soups, sauces or preserves.
As agar agar is derived from plants, not animals, vegetarians and vegans like it as a substitute for any dish that contains gelatine. It has no taste, odour or colour and sets more firmly than gelatine and can even set at room temperature. Agar agar gives a sensation of fullness, leading it to be used in some diet products. In Asia it is also sometimes used as a digestive remedy for upset stomachs.
