Coconut Agar Agar with Raspberry

What is Agar Agar?

Agar Agar is a strong natural jelling agent made from seaweed also as known as kanten.
It doesn't give the same texture as gelatine, it is actually firmer.
As it is a vegetarian gelatin substitute this makes it suitable for vegetarian and vegan diets.
It has no calories, no carbohydrates, no sugar and no fat! Conatins 80-percent fiber.
Great stuff which we should eat more of.
Or shall I say I should eat more of it as it helps weight loss!
It swells in the stomach as it absorbs water, making you feel full.
I shall be using this amazing stuff more now that I discovered the health benefits.

You can find the powdered form in health shops or in chinese supermarkets.
They also sell these in large strips like foam.
 You can find prepacked ones in different flavours and colours.
