Product Description

Making gelatin gel-ous.

Since Kanten forms a firmer gel than gelatin, there’s a lot more you can do with it. Purée a fruit gel to create a specialty sauce, which has properties of both liquids and solids. Or create solid pearls, a perfect garnish, from just about any liquid.

It’s hot and it’s cold.

To create a gel, simply bring Kanten and your liquid of choice to a boil and then chill. The gel won’t turn back into a liquid until a fairly hot temperature so, unlike with gelatin, warm preparations are possible.

A vegetarian blast from the past.

Agar-agar is made from seaweed, which makes it a vegetarian alternative for gelatin. Discovered in Japan, in the mid-1600s, its original name was ‘kanten’. While some of our ingredients have scary-sounding names, they’re often not any more refined than flour.
