What are Agar Flakes?
Agar-Agar is sold in powder, strips, bars, and flake forms.
Agar Agar Flakes are free from animal products, which is why they are widely used in vegetarian and vegan cooking as a gelatin substitute.
Most of all, flakes are odorless and tasteless, as a result, they do not affect the overall taste of the sweet desserts or savory recipes they are used in.
The bulk raw materials of our hydrocolloid products mainly originate from the natural and pollution-free seas of the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, and other countries, including quality gracilaria, eucheumaottoni and gelidium. All our raw materials are green and environment-friendly and comply with domestic & national, EU & FDA standards.

How to Cook With Agar-Agar
Before adding agar to a recipe, it needs to be dissolved in water and then boiled; it should not simply be dissolved in liquid or added directly to food.
Dissolve the agar in the liquid in a small pot, bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 to 7 minutes.
Agar powder dissolves more quickly than flakes and strips, so the latter requires additional soaking time and stirring to dissolve completely. (Flakes, strips, and bars can be processed into powder before use).
