Agar-Agar

Agar-Agar is a natural macromolecule polysaccharide product extracted from seaweeds such as porphyra and Gracilaria etc. and refined by scientific methods. It is composed of Agarose and Agaropectin. The agarose is composed of (1-4) linked 3, 6-anhydro -a-L-galactose alternating with (1-3) linked-b-D-galactose. Agar-Agar is usually white or tiny yellow, odorless or having light characteristic smell. It can't dissolve in cold water but can easily dissolve in boiling water and dissolve slowly in hot water.


Agar-Agar plays an especially important role in industrial field. Agar-Agar can still form quite stable gel even when concentration falls to 1%. It is a kind of essential raw material in food industry, chemical industry and medical research.


The characteristics of physical and chemical property like concretion, stability and forming complex together with other substances, makes Agar-Agar can be used as thickener, coagulator, suspension agent, emulsifier, antistaling agent, and stabilizer. The detailed applications in food:

widely used in producing granular orange beverage,jelly power, ice cream, soft candy, popsicle, meat, tomato sauce, coconut sauce, dry cheese, Eight ingredient porridge (sweet), white fungus and bird's nest, thick soup, cold dish etc.
