I use Agar Agar to make my own Cashew Nut Cheese. It does exactly what I need it to do - gives the correct 'gelatine' consistency and makes my cheese a success every time.

This product does a good job of thickening but has an awful chemically / chlorine taste which has overpowered everything I have made with it

Definitely not easy to work with. You add the amount as stated on the package and it doesn't set. You add too much and your jelly turns into rubber.

This is my first time using agar agar, so a bit of trial and error. A little goes a long way. It does work really well and great that it has no odor or distinct taste. Really pleased to learn about the associated health benefits.
