Clearspring Agar Flakes, known as "kanten" in Japanese, are a high quality vegetarian alternative to gelatine for making desserts, jellies and aspics. They are traditionally made from sea plants in Japan. They have a neutral flavour and are free from any bleaching chemical or softening agents.

Nowadays, almost all commercial agar-agar is made using sulphuric acid to dissolve the starches, and chemical bleaches and dyes to neutralise the colour and flavour of the sea plants. However, a few small craft producers, such as the family who make Clearspring Agar Flakes, still use the traditional slow method.

Ingredients

Agar sea vegetable (Gelidium and Gracilaria spp.)

Weight

28g

Direction For Use

We recommend the following ratio: one heaped tablespoon of agar flakes for 250ml of liquid. If the liquid being used is acidic then more agar flakes would be needed.

Sprinkle over the liquid in a saucepan before heating. Heat without stirring, then simmer for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the flakes dissolve. Pour into a mould and cool to set.
