Agar agar is used primarily as a stabilizer to prepare food and jellies. It is of marine origin and harvested from the cell wall of the seaweed varieties Gelidium, Eucheuma and Gracilaria. These come from the seas of southern Africa, but are also grown in different parts of the world such as Japan, the Philippines, and Morocco. The Bay of Biscay is the region of Spain where it is most widely cultivated.

Agar agar is colourless and tasteless but absorbs water in very large quantities and therefore it forms a gel which is an ideal thickener.

Ingredients: Vegetable extract of marine origin obtained from Gelidium cartilagineum and other red seaweeds.

Packaging: cardboard package.

Net weight: 25 g.

Culinary uses:

As a gelling agent and stabilizer in jams, jellies, juices, marmalades, pies, puddings, yogurt, curds, etc.

As a thickener in puddings, ice cream, mayonnaise, and sauces (at low concentrations, 0.1%).

When natural and rehydrated, it can also be added to salads.

Where does seaweed grow and how is it harvested?

The seaweed from PORTO-MUÍÑOS grows on rocks covered by the cold, clean water of the Atlantic Ocean. The harvesting is done by divers, who select and cut the best specimens in the most appropriate season for each species. The seaweed is then processed immediately.
