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.
Ingredients: Agar (Gelidium amansii), gracilaria (Gracilaria verrucosa)
Product weight - 28g
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.

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.
