A seaweed gelatin substitute. Easy to use flakes ideal for pie fillings, jellies, preserves, kanten, custards, and vegetable or fruit aspics. Wild, hand harvested sea vegetables with strong thickening properties are naturally prepared and dried in the mountains using only winter freezes and thaws. Agar agar bars and flakes are a vastly superior option to 'rendered' gelatin. Enjoy sea vegetable benefits that are very low sodium and easy to use. Called 'kanten' in Japan. Fat free and very low sodium.
