Agar agar is a super effective binder and gelling agent. You can compare it to gelatin, but it binds even more powerfully and is also 100% vegan. Agar agar is made from 100% red seaweed, also known as lace. We made it into powder just for you, so it’s super easy to work with.
Use agar agar for making vegan cheesecake, (sugar-free) jelly, jam, pudding or fruit sauce. Or make a terrine with agar!
The binding power of agar starts to decrease slightly after 4-5 hours. But no worries, you can still make a vegan cheesecake a day or 2 in advance, your cake will not collapse after 5 hours. You are certainly safe preparing cake with agar agar 2 days before consuming it.
