The binding power of agar agar is 4-5 stronger than of gelatin. You can use approximately 8 grams of powder for 1 liter fluid. Agar solidifies at room temperature so your dish doesn’t need to set in the fridge and last from the fridge longer in warm weather. If you use agar agar in products based on milk than we advise to place it in the fridge. Agar agar loses its binding powder after approx. 2 days.
