Our quick set agar powder is the same great superior agar powder we use in our dairy-free cheese kits. It works with the recipes in our book, One Hour Dairy Free Cheese as well as a refill for our Dairy-Free Cheese Kits when you run out.
Two small bags = 2.4 ounces
Agar - Gelling powder from two species of red seaweed (Gracilaria and Gelidium). Totally vegan and gluten free.
You will receive two little bags (twice as much as you get in our kits). This will make roughly 8 wheels of firm dairy free cheese using our recipes.
This agar powder is not available to retail costumers anywhere. We source it in bulk and this allows us to share it with you.
In our extensive testing, it was the easiest to cook with and fastest to set. We are able to mix it with our dairy-free cheese ingredients right in the blender versus having to "activate" it by pre-boiling it on it's own thereby saving time, frustration and an extra dirty pot!
Agar gelled cheeses do melt but you have to heat them to over 185 degrees Fahrenheit. We hope you like it this agar powder as much as we do!
