Agar agar is a gelatin that comes from a seaweed and has the power to thicken liquids in the form of a very nutritious gelatin.
The word agar comes from Malay and means jelly or jelly, it stayed with the name agar agar because as usual, repeating the word twice gives it more emphasis. It is a colorless and tasteless substance that absorbs water in quantities of 200 and 300 times its weight.
Due to its high capacity to absorb water, it swells on contact with it, producing a viscous solution that turns into a very firm jelly when boiled.
Agar agar is a good alternative for vegetarians since normal gelatins are made from animal bones and tendons and agar is a 100% natural gelatin.
