What is Agar Agar 50?
Many chefs have requested MFD supply a softer gel strength Agar. Our standard Agar Agar is one of the strongest on the market with a minimum gel strength of 1000 units. The new Agar Agar 50 has an approximate gel strength of 600 units.
The hydration working procedure is still the same as our stronger Agar. Reviews from Chefs who were involved in the testing procedure were really positive. One even using the Agar Agar 50 to create a fluid gel.
General Agar Agar Information - One suggested way to use Agar Agar.
Agar agar should be soaked in the liquid first for 10-15 minutes, then gently brought to a boil and simmered while stirring until it dissolves completely. This should take approximately 5 minutes. Unlike gelatin, agar agar can be boiled and can even be re-melted (thermoreversable) if necessary. If you are unsure as to the setting ability of your gel, test a small amount on a cold saucer - it should set in 20-30 seconds, if not you may need more agar agar, if too firm - add some more liquid.
