What is an Agar-agar?
Agar-Agar consists mainly of high molecular weight polysaccharides extracted from seaweed as Gelidium spp. (Tengusa in Japanese) and Gracilaria spp. (Ogo Nori in Japanese), which are also well-known as edible seaweeds for Sashimi (raw fish). Agar-Agar is food material developed in Japan about 350 years ago and now manufactured and consumed all over the world.

Agar-Agar contains more than 80% dietary fiber and is designated as a medicine for constipation and diarrhea in accordance with Japanese Pharmacopeia regulation.

Agar-Agar has three different types: strip, bar and powder. Its main use is gel foods like Tokoroten (pure Agar-Agar noodle), Mitsumame jelly (containing cubed jelly, boiled beans and some fruit in treacle and jellybeans). It is essential to make Japanese traditional confectionery, such as sweet beanjelly, soft azuki-bean jelly, and Chinese style almond jelly. Uniquely, it is also used in the field of bio-technological products as a medium for bacteria culture, gelling material for DNA analysis (agarose) and cell culture of Orchid.
