Agar Agar Bars by Eden Foods are a traditional odorless, tasteless sea vegetable gelatin, which make a great alternative to commercial animal or chemical gelatins. Ingredients: Seaweed - (Gelidium amansii, Gracilaria verrucosa)

Use EDEN Agar Agar with fruit juice to make an easy fruit aspic or jello. See below for instructions. It is also a superior gelatin for pie fillings, custards, puddings, fruit jams, pastry fillings, and candies. Enjoy sea vegetable benefits in a convenient and easy to use form. Very beneficial fiber. A much healthier alternative to 'rendered' gelatin. Fat and sodium free. 

To use: Cut or break one bar into pieces and place in 3 cups of water or juice. Bring to a boil without a lid, stirring occasionally. Reduce the flame to low and simmer for 15 minutes until dissolved. For aspic, add thinly sliced fruits or vegetables, cook for 3 to 4 minutes until tender and pour into a shallow dish or mold. Set aside to gel for about 1 hour or refrigerate to hasten gelling.

Unlike commercial producers of agar agar bars, EDEN Agar Agar Bars are naturally made without the use of sulfuric acid as a softening agent or inorganic bleaches and dyes used to whiten the sea vegetables and rid them of their odor. Simple boiling and outdoor freeze drying makes EDEN Agar Agar Bars a superior quality, pure vegetable gelatin containing no animal products or chemicals.

Agar Agar Bars begin as eight varieties of wild sea vegetables harvested by hand before being left to dry out on the beach. The dried plants are then cooked in water for several hours before being left outside in the mountains during winter to freeze and thaw repeatedly for 10 days, drying out the bars. This method results in a pure vegetable gelatin without any animal products or chemicals. Agar Agar Bars by Eden Foods are a healthy, vegan alternative to commercial gelatins.
