The most important characteristics of agar are the following.

  • Great gelling power

    Its great gelling power in an aqueous environment allows it to form gels which are more resistant (stronger) than those of any other gel-forming agent, assuming the use of equal concentrations.

  • No reagents needed

    The simple water solution has that gelling power. There is no need to add reagents to produce gelation, such as potassium (or proteins as is necessary with carrageenans), calcium (or other divalent cations as is necessary with alginates). High sugar concentrations or an acid environment (as is necessary with pectins) are not needed.

  • Wide range of pH

    It can be used over a wide range of pH, from 5 to 8, and in some cases beyond these limits. It withstands thermal treatments very well, even above 100°C which allows good sterilization.

  • Gel Hysteresis

    A 1.5% aqueous solution gels between 32°C-43°C and does not melt below 85°C. This is a unique property of agar, compared to other gelling agents.

  • No cations added

    Agar gives gels without flavour and does not need the additions of cations with strong flavours (potassium or calcium), it can be used without problems to gel food products with soft flavours.

  • Enhances flavours

    It assimilates and enhances flavours of products mixed with it and acts as a fragrance-fixer permitting their long term fixation.

  • Thermoreversible gel

    Its gel has excellent reversibility allowing it to be repeatedly gelled and melted without losing any of the original properties.

  • Transparent gels

    Transparent gels that are easily coloured can be obtained whose refractive index can also be easily increased by adding sugar, glucose, glycerine, etc., given them an attractive brightness.
