Agar agar gum powder E406 as a powerful alternative to gelatin


Agar agar gum powder E406 can be used in your kitchen as a gelling and binding agent, for example for the preparation of soup or jams. The colourless and tasteless excipient contains virtually no calories. It owes its name to the Malaysian word 'agaragar', which means jelly. Agar agar gum powder E406 is extracted from red seaweed and is a mixture of natural polysaccharide. Polysaccharides are carbohydrates made up of sugar molecules linked together. The substance is completely natural. You can order the binder online from us in packaging of 500 grams, 5 kilos or 25 kilos.

The difference between agar agar gum powder E406 and gelatin


Agar agar gum powder E406 is a strong alternative to gelatin. Strong in the literal sense because it has a higher binding strength. But secondly, it can be called strong because it is a vegetarian natural product. Gelatine, on the other hand, is a binding agent obtained from animal offal. That is why it is not suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Consuming gelatine is therefore one of the most common mistakes made by non-meat eaters. Agar agar gum powder E406 is vegetarian, vegan, halal and gluten-free.

How to use agar agar gum powder E406?


Working with agar agar gum powder E406 is a piece of cake. To activate its binding properties, first add the powder to cold water. Under constant stirring bring it to the boil until it is completely dissolved. Then add the mixture to your dish in small bits. Agar agar gum powder E406 is a lot stronger than gelatine. One gram of this soluble powder is able to achieve the same effect as 3 grams of gelatine. The process of setting takes about an hour, at room temperature as well as in the refrigerator.
