I have tried making zephyr (Russian marshmallow) at home so many times and failed each time.
My zephyr turned out just perfect the first time I used this agar! I am in love. Can’t wait to try more recipes. You can use it as a vegan substitute for gelatin, I believe.
Also, look up Birds Milk cake recipe with agar - delicious Russian cake!
Great substitut for gelatin for vegans and vegetarians. The consistency is a little more hard and brittle than gelatin. The package looks small at first, but it is actually enough for a long time, because a teaspoon is enough for a whole cup of liquid. I will definetly order again.
Very good agar-agar, I use it to make desserts instead of gelatine. It's very convenient because agar-agar doesn't melt at room temperature, unlike gelatine. And I like the fact that agar-agar is made from seaweed and not from cow's bones. The packaging is handy and the product lasts a long time.

This stuff works great for making vegan jello! I wanted to give people a heads up about the recipe on the bottle though. It recommends using 2 tablespoons of agar agar to one pint of juice, which I tried, and the jello turned out crazy hard and unappealing. After finding some other recipes online, I've been making jello with just 1/2 teaspoon of agar agar to one pint of juice (so, 1/12 the amount of agar agar) and it's worked well. Maaaybe I would up it to 3/4 teaspoon. Anyway, I just regret that I unnecessarily used up so much of the agar agar following the recipe on the bottle! You don't need that much.

I was looking for a more natural substitute for gelatin and came across this agar powder. I use it for my panna cotta deserts and it does a great job thickening it. I think it’s a pretty good quality for money. It doesn’t add any taste to my deserts which I appreciate, so I’ll definitely order again.
